The Dingle Peninsula A Walking Guide

The Dingle Peninsula A Walking Guide
The spectacular Dingle Peninsula in southwest Ireland extends westward into the Atlantic from Tralee to Slea Head. Voted among the Top 100 destinations in the world by TripAdvisor and referred to as ‘the most beautiful place on earth’ by National Geographic, its landscape includes soaring mountaintops, gentle hillsides, secluded lakes and valleys, ancient ruins, dramatic sea cliffs and long, sandy beaches. This guide takes you off the beaten track to explore this stunning landscape in a variety of walking routes ranging from short hikes to full-day treks. From the wild extremities of the Great Blasket Island to the majestic heights of Mount Brandon and the comfort of the Dingle Way, there’s something for all tastes. Each route is prefaced with a reference summary and illustrated with maps and photographs. Route descriptions include GPS coordinates, navigation guidance, access notes and short variations. There is also material on the fauna, flora, folklore, history, geology and place names of each area.
Please Note:
On page 68 the description of the start of Route 14, Ballyduff to Anascaul, should now read as follows:
Route Description:
Walk back towards the R560 from the graveyard and turn right. Walk around 500m along the road and cross the bridge over the Glennahoo River. Take care while walking along the R560 as it is a busy road with no verges.
Continue along the R560 for around 250m and look out for a Glennahoo Trail signpost on the right. There is a cottage near the start of the track and the signpost. Leave the R560 and take the track which is a bit overgrown and muddy in places. Continue south-eastward for around 150m along this track to reach a T-junction.
Turn right there and follow a lane southwards to Maghanaboe at the head of the valley. The Glennahoo River twists and turns along the valley floor to the right. The narrow valley, some 3km long, is flanked by a sweep of steep slopes clothed with banks of scree.
