Ireland is full of amazing places to cycle – especially with the creation of the Wild Atlantic Way. But the Dingle Peninsula is an especially magical and beloved place to bike for visitors and locals alike.
The Dingle Peninsula is a beloved peninsula found just north of the Ring of Kerry and Killarney. Noted for its rich history, myth and archeology, Dingle is also full of beautiful landscapes culminating at Slea Head, the western-most tip of Ireland, and the closest you can get to North America without hopping over to the now-deserted Blasket Islands.
One of the best ways to visit Dingle is on two wheels – the slower pace means that you’ll be able to better connect with the ancient landscape, stopping along the way to visit old forts, Neolithic ruins, cheery, pubs, bustling villages, and dramatic beaches.
Hugging the coastline, Dingle town is a lively, colourful place full live music, cozy pubs and fun shops. The most famous resident lives in the bay – Fungie the Dolphin! In the evening, be sure to try a warm plate of Fisherman’s Pie coupled with a pint of Crean’s, the local brew, before setting off to explore the rest of the peninsula!
We had the pleasure and good fortune to have both Donncha and Louise on our trip. Louise was amazing and while I am sure she is treasured in the office- she would be a fantastic guide! Louise went above and beyond on our trip- ensuring all hikers were enjoying their Wilderness Ireland experience. I cannot express enough my gratitude for her help pre-trip and during the trip! Many thanks to both Louise and Donncha for their generosity of knowledge, culture and spirit on this trip.
