Self-Guided 8-Day Dingle Peninsula Cycle

Our Self-Guided 8-Day Dingle Peninsula Cycle takes you to the most westerly point in Europe, exploring the coastal scenery rich with religious and mythological history.

It really is one of the most spectacular regions on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

Incredibly green pastures stretch as far as the eye can see, completely empty save for small herds of sheep or goats. At almost every turn there are spectacular views of mist-covered mountains and wild stretches of uninhabitable coastline where deep fissures have been carved by the rugged waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

The tip of the peninsula, west of Dingle town, is a stronghold of the Irish language, many traditions and customs have been preserved here along with the language.  We highly recommend this tour if you want an immersion into Irish traditions both old and new.
