The Dingle Way

The Dingle Way is a beautifully scenic long distance walking trail on the world famous Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry, Ireland

Walk Overview

At approximately 176 km (109 miles) long, the hiking route officially begins and ends in Tralee, the county capital, and takes in some of the world’s most breath taking scenery.   The walk takes 8 days to complete but may take longer depending on your level of fitness. You can join the trail at any number of points along its length as it hugs the coast along the Wild Atlantic Way. There are also many short loop walks and many mountain hikes and trails off the main Dingle Way offering excellent walking alternatives to cater for all interests.

The Dingle Way has been broken into 8 sections with each one feasible to do in a day. Of course you can break it down further for yourself where you can also incorporate some of the amazing looped walks on the peninsula along with many of the tourist experiences available.


The walk is a  moderate to strenuous  walk on most parts and in dry conditions, but it  can get demanding on wet and muddy ground. Short portions of the Dingle Way unfortunately follow minor  roads which are narrow and very busy. Extra care is needed there
