Between Heaven and the Sea

Dingle simply is a unique world. Gorse and wild roses bloom throughout the area, their soft pink petals forming a colourful contrast to the deep blue of the Atlantic beyond. Your hike along the Dingle Way will take you to bustling fishing villages where, if you listen closely, you’ll hear the people playing traditional Irish music and speaking the Gaelic language – further enhancing the feeling of truly being immersed in Ireland. Dunquin is a sight to behold … the stage town has only a few solitary houses scattered over a wide area, eliciting the sensation of being on the edge of this Irish microcosm. Breathtaking views of the Blasket Islands just off the coast make this scene one of the most beautiful in the entire country. Finally, you’ll cross a pass at Ireland’s highest peak and arrive at the tiny harbour at Brandon Pier. In Dingle, you’re sure to experience a plethora of varied and stunningly beautiful worlds in just a few days. 

Tour Character: Level 2

This is a challenging tour, mainly due to the length of the stages. The only significant altitude gain is experienced on the last day. Some of the paths are rocky and can be slippery in wet weather. Tarred side roads scattered throughout this long-distance hike, however, you can easily avoid the “worst” of these by taking the bus or a transfer. Good physical conditioning is mandatory, and you’ll need to be surefooted for the descent from the pass on day 7. As you’ll repeatedly meet shepherds with dogs along the way, hiking with dogs is not permitted on this tour.

  • Day 1

    Arrival in Tralee

  • Day 2

    Tralee – Camp

    The beginning of the Dingle Way leads along a canal to the Blennerville windmill. Before long, the path starts to climb gently, leading along the side of a mountain and showcasing magnificent views of Tralee Bay. The path is rocky, however, and can be muddy in bad weather, yet the deep wealth of diverse flora makes this first stage an entertaining experience.

    Walking time: approx. 5.5 hours, approx. 17.5 km á 330 m â300 m

  • Day 3

    Camp – Annascaule

    Hop from one rock to the next across the Finglass River, and then embark on a steadily climbing trail. With only sheep and birds to keep you company today, the view over the surrounding peaks and the sea nearby is simply stunning. It won’t be long before the extensive and sandy Inch Beach unfolds before you. Wild roses and orchids accompany you along the path that leads to the small village of Annascaul.

    Walking time: approx. 6 hours, approx. 17 km á 410 m â415 m

  • Day 4

    Annascaul – Dingle

    The Minard Castle ruins are the highlight of the first half of today’s stage. If you want to avoid walking on the tarred roads, however, you can easily bypass the first section by bus. Once you reach Lipsole, a wonderful stretch then takes you past farms and across countless sheep pastures as you approach your final destination – the lively little town of Dingle.

    Walking time: approx. 3- 6 hours, approx. 11-21 km á 465 m â485 m

  • Day 5

    Dingle – Dunquin

    To begin this stage, take the bus to Ventry Beach. From here, you’ll walk for several kilometres along the coastline via one of Ireland’s most beautiful beaches. Afterwards, you’ll embark on the way to Eagle Mountain, which takes you over sheep pastures and small river courses. The stage town Dunquin is Europe’s most westerly point and the stunning views of the Blasket Islands are truly unique.

    Walking time: approx. 4 hours, approx. 14 km á 525 m â500 m

  • Day 6

    Dunquin – Feohannagh

    Transfer to Smerwick Harbour in the morning, where long sandy beaches are once again the order of the day. Towards the end of this stage, a stunning stretch along the cliffs of Smerwick Harbour awaits you. Feohanagh is the smallest stage town on this tour.

    Walking time: approx. 6 hours, approx. 19.5 km á 225 m â250 m

  • Day 7

    Feohannagh – Brandon Pier

    The royal stage is this tour’s final stage – this trek takes you up to a pass at Mount Brandon before heading through a nature reserve and back down to the sea. The views of the Dingle Peninsula coastline here are simply beautiful. Brandon Pier is a small harbour that marks the end of your Dingle Way hiking experience. Transfer back to Tralee.

    Walking time: approx. 6 hours, approx. 20 km á 675 m â670 m
