Self-Guided Dingle Way Hike

Self Guided

The perfect way for the independent explorer to see our hidden gems & discover the many paths less travelled.






Per Person

Self Guided Dingle Way Hikes on the Wild Atlantic Way.

The Dingle Peninsula is one of the most inspiring places in Ireland. Steeped with an abundance of archaeological remains, history abounds as you hike alongside the Atlantic Ocean and experience the magnificent landscapes & coastal scenery.
The Dingle Way offers you several ways of experiencing this glorious corner of Ireland. You can make your choice to start in Tralee town and hike the Kerry Camino as far as Dingle town, or you can start in Dingle and do the most westerly tip of Europe.
We invite you to lose yourself in this wonderful place as you discover the magic of the Dingle Peninsula. Choose from 3, 5, 8 or 10 day Self-Guiding holiday options and we are certain, whatever you choose, the Dingle Way will leave you wanting to return.

3 day & 5 day Walking Tours

Immediately step into the most westerly point of Europe as you hike around the glorious Slea Head. See the rich evidence of ancient churches and dwellings that people once lived in as they travelled here as pilgrims. These two holiday choices give you the opportunity to explore some of the most historical areas on the Dingle Peninsula and you will have time to enjoy Dingle town, famous for its lively pubs & fantastic local food culture.

6 day and 8 day Hiking Tours

Both these holidays start in the bustling town of Tralee and follow west to Dingle town. Both take you to the little village of Annascaul made famous by South Pole expeditions. And both also follow the Kerry Camino and give you time in Dingle town to enjoy all the delights it offers. The 8-Day option takes you further west to walk across the lower slopes of the Brandon range of mountains, before then crossing the central hills of the peninsula to experience some isolated peatland along with glorious views north across the Atlantic Ocean and south across Dingle Bay before finishing your holiday.
Or, if you prefer shorter distances each day, the 8-Day Comfort Tour gives you the same wealth of history and scenery as the “regular” 8 day trip, with shorter hikes and more opportunity to explore the villages & towns along your way.

10 Day Dingle Way Hike

This holiday choice gives you everything. From your starting point in Tralee town to the delightful Dingle town, you also hike around the entire Slea Head coastline the most westerly point of Europe. Continuing to the magnificent Brandon range of mountains, you then finish in the seaside town of Castlegregory. If you would like to complete the entire “Dingle Way” we will happily add in an 11th night to bring you back to the village of Camp. This trip is the crème de la crème of hiking in Ireland.

Should you decide to choose Solo Traveller Supplement please note the single room supplement costs are already included.

We did discover the beautiful region of the County of Kerry (Kerry Ring Tour).Very well organized by IWHB, good communication with the team (good reactivity, and kean to find solutions and open minded, especially when we had to postpone our journey due to the COVID). The hotels/guestrooms very well choosen (good location and guests friendly). Luggage drop off to the next accomodation was a really good option. The infos were correct. We do recommend Ireland Walk Hike Bike and will travel again with them, for sure.

Wonderful trip. Everything was planned perfectly by Ireland WBH. B&Bs were great with Irish breakfast every day to fortify us for the ride. Would love to do another bike trip with them.

Our walk along parts of the Dingle Way and connected trails as organized by Ireland Walk Hike Bike was everything we had hoped for, from extremely courteous and responsive staff to useful links before the trip (including excellent exercise videos!) and a specially-designed GPS app which knew which route we were following as well as where we had gotten to. (While we also used the provided maps and cue sheets, the GPS app in itself would probably have been sufficient.) The B&Bs which we were booked into were all cozy and clean, and our luggage was handled without any problem. I would recommend this outfit (IWBH) – and I have indeed recommended it – to anyone wishing to explore the part of Ireland we encountered. IWBH also deserve credit for holding our deposit for two years of COVID delay; and I’m very glad that we could finally undertake the walk. For what it’s worth, we took the self-guided “comfort” hike, which meant that we would receive taxi rides to favorable trailheads each day. (From what we could tell, we most often avoided flat boring stretches near towns, without sacrificing more remote and interesting parts.)

My husband and I did a self-guided hike through a large part of the Dingle Peninsula to celebrate his 80th birthday. Naturally, we had some concerns about getting lost, having the needed stamina and wanting support along our way. Ireland Walk Hike Bike staff were there for us every step of the way. They chose excellent accommodations at very reasonable prices; taught me how to use the GPS function on my first ever smartphone and arranged transportation to and from Shannon Airport to Tralee. We met so many wonderful folks along our treks who took time from their walk to talk about their lives. It went like clockwork and have toyed with the idea of a repeat adventure if our health permits.

I usually plan vacations months ahead of time but this one came together in just a few short weeks thanks to Ireland Walk Hike Bike. They worked with our rather impromptu and tight time frame to arrange a 6-day outing along the Kerry Way, and we had a magical time from start to finish. The Kerry Way is moody, broody, and incredibly varied. All arrangements were spot on, from accommodation to transport to walking notes. All we had to do was soak up the scenic rambling each day, drink a celebratory Guinness each night, and meet really interesting people along the way. Ireland captured a piece of my heart – will need to go back again with Ireland WHB to retrieve it!
