Start your Dingle Way hike with an included transfer (45 mins) to the southern coast of the Dingle Peninsula and the starting point of today’s walk in quaint Lispole. Head north and west along meandering country roads with views to the Iveragh Peninsula and then walk along the Connor Pass road and enjoy superb wide vistas as you walk down into Dingle itself.

The town is renowned for its music, seafood and culture. And with some 53 licensed premises you wont be stuck for somewhere to have a relaxing drink!

Turn-by-turn directions

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.
