Annascaul & Inch - Abhainn an Scáil & Inse
Annascaul (or Anascaul) is a village in the heart of the Dingle Peninsula: situated close to both the Slieve Mish mountains and the long sandy beach at Inch, it is a popular area for walkers. It is also home to a number of pubs and accommodation providers. The village also celebrates two famous sons: Antarctic explorer Tom Crean and Irish-American sculptor, Jerome Connor.
Annascaul is a walker’s paradise. Hill and dale, sea, river, lake make an ever-changing pattern, with the wild flowers of Kerry blooming everywhere.
Situated as it is on the south-west tip of Ireland, the Gulf Stream plays a more warming part than it does for the rest of the country. For the holiday maker, this gives a longer season of enjoyment. The first flowers of Spring appear shortly after Christmas and the gorse is still in bloom at the end of October.
