The Dingle, Iveragh & Beara Peninsulas

A Walking Guide

The Dingle, Iveragh and Beara peninsulas dominate the spectacular landscape of southwest Ireland. Their rugged peaks, dramatic ridges, captivating valleys, glittering lakes and stunning Atlantic coastline form a treasure chest of walking options. This guide describes exhilarating walks in each peninsula, accompanied by the author's photographs and specially drawn maps. These walks provide a range of options, both for those familiar with the region and for first-time visitors.

This region attracts thousands of walkers annually and, since most routes are not signposted or waymarked, an up-to-date guidebook is essential. The walk descriptions also include material on the fauna, flora, folklore, history, geology and place names of the area.
