Dingle Peninsula

With a dramatic mountainside plunging into a rugged and richly green coastline, as well as tiny, winding roads passing breathtaking ocean views, stone ruins, and colorful wildflowers, the Dingle Peninsula has won the hearts of many, including reader teddi who continues to return for the "the beauty and the people."

Reader radmoo visited the peninsula last summer, and "loved waking in the morning, looking out our window and seeing cows to the left and sheep to the right," and said the people were "the friendliest we have ever encountered in our travels."
