Ballydavid & Feohanagh

Baile na nGall & An Fheothanach

Visitors to the Dingle Peninsula who fail to spend time in the area that comprises Ballydavid, Feohanagh and Murreagh are, sadly, missing out on one of its most beautiful spots and an area of uncommercialised local culture. Even throughout the busy summer months, this area remains peaceful. There are outstanding walks, into Coumaloghig or up to Arraglen or along coastal areas, and wonderful evening views out over the last edge of land to the Atlantic.

During the summer months, you can expect to find traditional music sessions each night at most of the area pubs. Impromptu sessions by local musicians can occur year round at any time of the day or evening.

All of the restaurants in the area are located so close to the sea, that the variety and quality of the seafood served in the area is second to none.



WALKING AND CYCLING / Siúl agus Rothaíocht

Slea Head Drive by Bicycle: photo by Michelle CoffeyIt is very easy for one to become enchanted with this beautiful area that touches the Atlantic Ocean and is overlooked by the splendour of Mount Brandon . . . especially when one takes the time to explore the area on foot. As well as walking the Dingle Way and the Saints Road, one can also trek along various mountain and cliff walks or discover the many archaeological sites which remain as a reminder of the thousands of years of history attached to the area. For more information on walks in the area, contact the Dingle Tourist Office in Dingle Town, or call in to T.P.'s Pub at Ballydavid.

The area is easy to explore on bicycle as the roads are quiet and the area is relatively flat and easy to cycle. Many of the archaeological sites can be easily visited by bicycle, too.

ANGLING / Duántacht

The diverse coastline and the geographical position of the peninsula, located just off the Continental Shelf and washed by the warming influence of the North Atlantic Drift, encourages a wide range of marine life. Virtually every species known to exist in European waters has been captured at one time or another on rod and line. Among the species available to be caught are tope, skate, monkfish, mackerel, pollack, cod, ling, ray, turbot, dab, plaice, sole, flounder, bass, spurdogs, wrasse, coalfish, conger, whiting, bull huss, blue, porbeagle, and mako shark.

For those interested in shore angling, there are numerous places throughout the Dingle Peninsula from which shore angling is spectacular in the scenery from where you fish to the varied range and quality of the fish to be caught. No matter what the weather may hold, there is always some sheltered bay perfect for fishing.
