The fourth section of the Wild Atlantic Way cycling takes you from the town of Killarney to Tralee across the magnificent Dingle Peninsula, discovering the region’s rich culture, history and wild beauty. The route hugs the coastline and rewards cyclists with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Kerry Mountains.
The colourful town of Dingle is a stop along this section of the Wild Atlantic Way cycling: TripAdvisor rated it among the top 100 destinations in the world and National Geographic referred to it as “the most beautiful place on earth”. The town’s most famous resident is a bottle nose dolphin named Fungi who made Dingle harbour his home in 1983.
On this section of the Wild Atlantic Way cycling you will cross the Dingle Peninsula and Mount Brandon by the famous Conor Pass which has a superb viewing point at 412m. From here you will be able to see the coast on either side of the peninsula.
In addition to stunning landscapes, the Dingle Peninsula is also dotted with important cultural and historic sights from Celtic Ogham stones to Fahan Beehive huts, ring forts, dolmens, standing stones and holy wells. Annascaul is also an interesting stop, as it is the birthplace of famous Antarctic explorer Tom Crean. His pub, The South Pole Inn, is a great place to get some refreshments or explore the museum. Parts of the Dingle Peninsula are in a Gaeltacht (Irish speaking area): the best place to discover authentic Irish culture. Get a free quote for the Dingle Way cycle!
