Itinerary

Day 1 / Transfer to Camp

You have the option to arrive at Dublin or Shannon Airport and take a bus or train to Tralee where you will take a 25-minute journey by public transport to the village of Camp. We will supply you with the necessary timetables and information to get you safely to your first accommodation.

Day 2 / Camp to Anascaul

Your first day’s walking on the Dingle Way takes you across the hub of the Dingle Peninsula.

Following a “Boirín” (a Gaelic word meaning small road) you will walk to a col between Corrin and Knockbrack Hills to reach a height of 235 m/705 ft. From here you will have some remarkable views of Baurtregaum Mountain, which is the highest mountain in the Slieve Mish range and an impressive megalithic fort that sits on the edge of Caherconree Mountain. The trail then descends gently downwards and eventually offers you some spectacular views across the wildlife sanctuary of lnch Beach. It was here that some of the famous “Ryan’s Daughter” movie were filmed.

Distance: 18.5 km / 12.6 miles, Ascent: 460 m / 1380 ft, Approximate walking time: 6 / 7 hrs

Day 3 / Annascaul to Dingle

From Anascaul, the trail takes you west to the town of Dingle along a series of minor roads that meander around the surrounding countryside and open mountains. You will have a chance to visit the magnificent ruins of the 16th century Minard Castle and stop off for lunch in the beautiful village of Lispole

From Lispole the trail takes you northwest back towards the spine of the Dingle Peninsula. From here the views over Dingle Bay are simply awe-inspiring.

  • Hi Christopher,

    On behalf of Mary & Myself, I want to thank you for our wonderful trip. We loved every minute of it, even the wet bits.

    The B&B’s that you work with are second to none and in every place we stayed we were made to feel welcome and at home at all times. In each place, they even refrigerated our wine and provided us with wine glasses in order to enjoy our pre-dinner drinks. I would like to give a particular shout out to Donnach in The Castle B&B in Ballintoy. He told us that we were his first “Footfall” visitors so our feedback on his B&B is that it is excellent.

    Your notes and attention to detail on your trail instructions are excellent but just to note for yourself, the red trail down the side of the cliffs to the Giants Causeway is locked and not currently in use. Not sure whether the explanation is Covid related or a safety issue.

    Many thanks

  • Hi Christopher,

    Thank you again for a wonderful day yesterday.  We thoroughly enjoyed it and very much appreciated the lovely relaxed pace and all the stories and information and the fun. Thanks to Teresa also for taking us to Avondale and to the grandchildren for their patience. Truly a memorable experience.

    A Day Walk on Trooperstown & the Vale of Clara
  • Dear Christopher,
    And thank YOU, our fearless leader!   You did a great job tending your flock!
    I had a most wonderful time, albeit a little more challenging than I had expected.
    But, I am grateful that the wind only knocked me down on some Valencia heather and not over a cliff! ;
    The scenery was stunning and the lodgings (particularly Casey’s and The Grand) and meals were superb!!
    And the icing on the cake was the pleasure of your company and great sense of humor!
    A perfect package all together!!
    I have more compliments to pay, but I will save them for the next time we connect.  Perhaps you, Teresa and I can
    chat via Facetime after the New Year.  I’d also like to talk a little bit more about the Wicklow Mountains Tour.
    Hope you have a wonderful and well earned holiday in New Zealand!!
    Take care and all the best,
    Carmel
