Our minibus picks you up in Dingle at your accommodation or a prearranged meeting point and time. Among some of the more popular locations on this tour are Rahinnane Castle near Ventry, the Beehive Huts and structures of the stone age “City of Fahan”, Gallarus Oratory and Kilmalkedar Church.  During this tour we’ll take some of the smaller lanes and back roads that intertwine across the peninsula, providing wonderful views and vistas that are never seen from the main roads. During the 7 hour tour we also explore to the east of Dingle visiting Minard Castle and Garfinney Bridge among a wealth of other sites and old atmospheric buildings.

Other options include slightly longer walks and strolls to some of the locations and sites further away from the minibus. A rather steep walk and a climb over a stonewall stile, brings you up to the ogham standing stone and WWII lookout post on the top of Dunmore Head, with excellent views over the Blasket Islands, Coumeenoole and Dunquin.  A gentle 20-minute hill walk takes us up to the iconic Eask Tower, which stands on top of Carhoo Hill above Dingle Harbour.  The wooden hand of the solid stone tower guided ships of an earlier age towards the narrow and almost invisible entrance to Dingle Harbour from Dingle Bay.  Take in the panoramic views of Dingle Bay, Dingle Town, Ventry and almost the entire southern edge of the Dingle Peninsula.

This tour is specially designed for individuals and small groups and you are more than welcome to suggest your very own itinerary for any locations you really wish to visit.  We can accommodate groups of up to 7 on this tour, and all walking is along gentle paths near to the minibus or level ground, unless of course, you want to be more adventurous!
