The Dingle Peninsula region

The Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry

Peace and tranquillity are synonymous with the Dingle Peninsula. Life moves at an unhurried pace, but the local people are quick to offer you the opportunity to share their unique culture and heritage.

An Daingean (Dingle), a beautiful and charming fishing port, is the most westerly town in Europe and a most memorable destination. Gaily painted houses and busy streets lead you to the harbour, where you can meet Fungi, a playful bottle-nosed dolphin who cavorts for the enjoyment of everyone.

The Dingle Peninsula has the greatest concentration of archaeological sites in Ireland. If you find yourself driven to explore, then begin with the Conor Pass, the highest pass in Ireland which one can drive through, that provides spectacular views of Dingle Harbour to the south and Mount Brandon to the north. Continue your adventure onto the Slea Head Drive as it twists and turns through some of the most ruggedly beautiful landscape in Ireland, offering dramatic views of the Three Sisters and the Blasket Islands.

The land west of An Daingean (Dingle) is a Gaeltacht, or Irish Speaking area, where the traditional language, folk customs, crafts and lore are very much alive today. The Blaskets are the most westerly islands in Europe located off the coast.

On the northern side of the peninsula there are many lakes, rivers and unique flora and fauna due to the marsh valley floor. Visit Loch a’Dúin, one of the most important ancient sites in the region, which contains a remarkable series of monuments from the Bronze Age.


Cloghane village is nestled in a semi-circle of mountain peaks and overlooks the stunning Brandon Bay. This region offers many rivers, lakes, streams, and waterfalls. This is a Gaeltacht region, where the Irish language is spoken. It has an abundance of sandy beaches, washed clean by the surf of Brandon Bay. Nearby is Brandon, a small fishing village with a quay still used by local fishermen. There is an abundance of walking trails here, and the climb to the summit of Mt Brandon is very popular. The region is very is popular with anglers, with salmon, bass and trout being plentiful.

The Cloghane / Brandon area has a rich heritage of music, language, and dance. The Brandon Regatta is still going strong in August, as is the tradition of the Wren on 26 December.

On the last weekend in July, the festival of Lughnasa is held, with a wide variety of entertainment available.

There are several traditional pubs in the area serving fine food, some specialising in locally-caught seafood. Sessions of music, song, and dance are held nightly in most of the local pubs, where young and old, tourist and local, blend together to create a unique atmosphere.

Pony trekking, scuba diving, windsurfing, canoeing and waterskiing are available in Castlegregory village and on the Maharees peninsula, about a ten-minute drive away. The nearest golf course, Castlegregory Golf Club, is a fine links course in Stradbally, about an eight-minute drive. Ballybunion, Killarney, Tralee, and many other famous courses are within an hour's drive.

"A magical location"

Nora and her daughter were wonderful people to deal with and the house exceeded all our expectations. Cloghane made a great base for exploring the dingle peninsula and the view from the front of the house across the bay was gorgeous. We would be more than happy to go back in future. By the way, thanks for the advice on going to Out of the Blue in Dingle for my birthday meal: possibly the best sea food I have ever eaten. Top marks all round!
