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!
I did a trip the following week, and decided to wait til the end to say..
I will definitely book with Wilderness Ireland again and recommend it to friends!
