When is the best time of year to visit the Dingle Peninsula?
The Dingle Peninsula is a place for all seasons. Whilst the summer buzz can be the most sought after, the pace and tempo of life on the Peninsula slows down from September through to May. This is the time when the many characters of the peninsula can be experienced from the day to day life of our local communities - school time, farming and fishing to the wild Atlantic storms that sweep in across the land.
Halloween, Christmas Shopping, The Wren, New Year’s Eve and early Spring Festivals - The Storm Festival, Dingle Walking Festival, Comortas Peile, Scoil Ceoil an Earraigh, Dingle Film Festival, Saint Patrick’s Day Parades and Feile na Bealtaine - all celebrate community spirit and the great outdoors.
ba cheart duit fanacht tamall - you should stay a while
Wherever you come from if you travel as far as the Dingle Peninsula you will have come a long way. We highly recommend that you stay at least two to three nights on the Peninsula to be able to sample and enjoy this magical place. The whole experience of the Dingle Peninsula is about slowing down and living at a completely different pace. Linger a while and you will find yourself wishing to stay longer or like many before you returning again and again over a lifetime.
