Many people pass up visiting the Dingle Peninsula in favor for the famous "Ring of Kerry" drive in Ireland. However, this beautiful place packs a big punch.
The town itself has plenty to do including a beautiful harbor and an aquarium, not to mention shopping and plenty of pubs.
We decided to take a rental car (yes, the driving is on the left hand side) and make the scenic loop in a day. The views are not only spectacular, but full of history. On one turn, we discovered a famine era house, on another, beehive huts that were built by monks centuries ago. There is a beach and even a nature center there to enjoy.
Even though the twisty road is about a car length wide, the drive is easy. Other drivers are conscientious, and of course, everyone takes a leisurely pace to enjoy all the sights.
I suggest that you take a picnic lunch with you. Not only will you avoid the high restaurant prices, but you will find a spot with a beautiful view and make a wonderful memory too.

A drive around the Dingle Peninsula is must-do when visiting this part of County Kerry. The landscape is spectacular, the water churns green, white and blue, and the cliffs are just as stunning as in tourism photos.
