Splashed by the crisp waters of the Atlantic and famed for its rugged natural scenery, the Dingle Peninsula features some of Ireland's highest mountains. Home to a large Irish-speaking population, the peninsula maintains its unhurried pace of life and a strong tradition of poetry, music, and storytelling. A place of many faces, the Dingle Peninsula boasts varied landscapes that include rocky hills, sandy beaches, ancient ruins, and staggering cliffs. To meet the locals and hear them tell stories in their native tongue, explore the small villages and their cozy pubs. Save time and avoid confusion on the road by purchasing a map of the peninsula, which provides both Irish and English versions of all place names.
