This walk takes an average of eight days to circuit Ireland's scenic Dingle Peninsula. It's another walk improved by the opportunity for a hot meal, a pint and a warm bed at the end of each day. I've been able to book ahead one night at a time on the recommendations of landlords which has proven a good tactic. I'm recommending this trail because it's got something for every walker.

There is varied scenery, mountains, agricultural land, picturesque villages, the ocean and places of historical and literary significance littered along the route. Most of the walking is easy, with only the assault on Mount Brandon offering a challenge.

The trail starts and finishes in Tralee.
