There is the most spectacular view from this amazing hilltop area which looks down into the lush valley. Springtime with the flowers is breathtaking. We sat on grass and meditated! Wonderful area for photography.
The western half of the Dingle Peninsula, from Dingle town out to the Blasket islands is some of the most spectacular, friendly and fun places in the world. From the cosy bustle of Dingle and its 52 pubs, to Funghi the dolphin in its bay, to scaling Mount Brandon and taking in the views at the Connor Pass. And that's all just around Dingle town!
Head further west and you have the amazing beauty of Ceann Tra (or Ventry) strand. Two miles of pristine beach in a beautiful bay. On a sunny afternoon you have to sit out the front of Quinns pub in Ventry village and take in the glorious view.
Then head around The Slea Head Drive for the most pant-wetting views around. Narrow roads (although wider these days) and spectacular cliff faces make for an exhilarating drive. Stop of on Coomeenaul beach and get pounded by huge waves.
There's so much more to do on this wonderful peninsula, such as taking a day trip to the now abandoned village on the Great Blasket island. Watch incredible sunsets at the peninsula's western most point. Play golf on the most exposed lynx course ever. Or just get lost down the narrow fushia hedged lanes. Some of the best surfing in Europe is here too.
