Dingle Peninsula, Minard Castle, Slea Head, Wild Atlantic Way Ocean Walk

Early Morning

Our first stop of the day is at the tranquil Inch Strand. Wander along this long stretch of wide, clean and serene beach and get lost in your thoughts.

From there we go a way off the beaten track to Minard. This is a place where only the big tour busses can wonder and see in the far off distance. Learn about the history of the castle that dominates the landscape there, drink water from the Well of the local saint and leave a gift for the fairies on the hidden fairy tree.

Late Morning

After a toilet break and some extra time to grab some snacks in a local shop, it is then on to the curvy Slea Head drive. Once described by National Geographic as the most beautiful place on earth, we drive along the edge of the peninsula with the wild Atlantic ocean to our left and the patchwork green fields to our right.

You’ll discover local secluded beaches, ancient stone huts and have plenty of free time to take photos and experience the majestic surroundings.
