After a short transfer (25 mins), you arrive in the delightful village of Dunquin situated at the most westerly tip of the Dingle Peninsula and the last stop before reaching America. The Blasket Islands can be seen 3 miles offshore and Dunquin itself is often referred to as "the next parish to America". It is also renowned for its scenery and its surviving Gaelic culture. Here there are rugged cliffs which make up the coastline.

A great, invigorating day’s walking along the coastal paths, with outstanding views to the wild Atlantic Ocean and secluded beaches. Perhaps stop at the workshop of renowned Irish potter Louis Mulcahy at Clothar, where you can enjoy coffee and cake in the café or even try your hand at the craft yourself (open July/August).

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
