Dingle Way

Between sky and sea

8 Days / 7 Nights
Hikers on the coastal path

Dingle is a world of its own. Broom and wild roses bloom on every corner in Dingle, and the delicate pink of these flowers forms a colourful contrast to the deep blue of the Atlantic. Your walk along the Dingle Way takes you into lively fishing villages. Listen carefully: Irish music and Gaelic language enhance the feeling of having landed in a world of your own. You will feel as if you are at the end of this microcosm in the stage town of Dunquin. There are only a few houses scattered in solitude over a wide area. The Blasket Islands off the coast make this scene one of the most beautiful in Ireland. Finally, you tackle a pass at the highest peak in Ireland and land in the small harbour of Brandon Pier. In Dingle you will experience many worlds in just a few days.
