Dingle Way

The Dingle Way, Tralee - Tralee, 162 km, 7 days

The Dingle Way is a popular walk on the Dingle peninsula in the southwest. The path runs close to the coast, and works itself around the mountains, passing small villages, fields, farms, and often stepping on the beach itself.

The peninsula is very scenic, but the path has two drawbacks: half the time you will walk on tarmac. No problem really, small roads, easy walking, not much traffic, but be prepared. The other drawback is that the mountains, rising to over 800 m, are left aside.

If you have an adventurous nature, a tent, and some spare time, plan some extra days to pass over the ridge of Baurtregaum, 851 meters at its summit. Any other mountain is fine as well.

The trail is well documented: guides, (online) maps and way marked in the field. Good accommodation options as well.
