The Dingle Peninsula

On the second day of our road trip we drove from Killarney around the Dingle Peninsula with a stop of in Dingle for lunch. There is a lot to see on this route and we had our fingers crossed for the fog to lift as the route is full of amazing views.

The Route:

Killarney – Castlemaine (stopping off at Ross Castle) – Camp – Dingle (on the R650)

    just a thought – pleeeese could you integrate a maplet so blog-readers unfamiliar with the E.I .can more easily follow your itinerary?
