Here are 7 places that you should not miss:

1. Inch Beach

is definitely worth a visit! Walking down this huge beach is really relaxing. However, it can get very exiting if local equestrians decide to take their horses for a little canter down the beach.

2. Bulls Head

and the beach right next to it are forming a beautiful spot to stop and enjoy the diverse colours of the rocks.

3. Dingle

(and I am talking about the village itself this time) is a lovely little place. Its colourful houses all along the main roads are particularly outstanding.

4. Slea Head Drive

is the coastal road that takes you from Dingle Village to the very end of the Dingle Peninsula. I can definitely recommend driving down the Slea Head Drive, as the views just kept getting better after every corner.

5. Dunquin Harbour

is known from many photos and postcards and definitely worth a visit. Make sure to walk all the way down to the actual harbour as well. The surrounding cliffs are impressive.

6. Connor Pass

is feared by many due to its narrow passages. I have to say, however, that in the past years the streets have been broadened (apart from a short passage) and Connor Pass is now quite a joy to drive.
