Our trip to the Dingle Peninsula and the Town of Dingle, Ireland started out in Killarney. The Dingle Peninsula is part of the Wild Atlantic Way which runs along the east coast of Ireland, this includes the Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs of Mohr. The drive is through beautiful countryside with rolling hills and many sheep that dot the hillsides. The roads are narrow here and all of the tour bus drivers know to go in the same direction, making it easier for everyone to travel along the route. Once in a while there will be a foreign bus driver that tires to drive the opposite direction and there can become a large traffice jam, where there is really nowhere for the bus to turn around. Which makes the foreign bus driver have to back up the curvy road, in some instances for a long distance.
The main town is Dingle is a quint fishing village that has become very popular with tourists and Irish vacationers. The town mascot is Fungy, the Dolphin. He resides in Dingle Bay and you are guaranteed to see him on a boating trip.
The scenery is spectacular along this area of Ireland with the rugged coast meeting the lush green hills and meadows. On the day we were there, we were blessed with blue sunny skies. We were lucky enough to see to the Ring of Kerry and the Baskin Islands. A main landmark here is Skellig Michael Island. This is the island where the last scenes of the new Star Wars movie was filmed.
As you can see with the pictures it is a beautiful place to visit any time of year.
