Killarney – Dingle Peninsula Day Tour

Dingle PenninsulaThe Dingle Peninsula which stretches out into the Atlantic ocean, is the most northerly of the mountainous promontories which forms the indented coast of South-west Ireland.It is particularly notable in its scenery of the mountain and coast and is of interest on account of its antiquities.

Gallarus Oratory, Dingle

From Slea Head one can see the Blasket Islands which are the last outposts of Europe and are known as the “next parish to America”.They are famous for the literary and linguistic heritage of the former inhabitants. However, these remote islands have been uninhabited since the 1950’s following an evacuation.

This Western end of the peninsula is a Gaeltacht area that has produced a number of nationally notable authors and poets: O’Siochfhradha and Peig Sayers among others.Being an Irish speaking district traditional customs are still very much alive.
