The town of Dingle, located on Dingle Peninsula, is a quaint place, but sits in the heart of one of the most scenic places in Ireland. It is best reached by car, but Bus Eireann also runs in the town. The nearest train stations are in Tralee or Killarney, and tour buses don't frequent the roads like they do the Ring of Kerry, so you can feel like you're in a remote place (without being isolated).

Within the town itself, there isn't much to do outside of your Dingle hostel (there are some local shops and a grocery, and some pubs) but don't let that limit you. There are lots of outdoor activities and opportunities. Take a bike ride to Slea Head if it's a sunny day, or jump in for a quick swim on the white sandy beaches if it's a warm day. You can kayak or explore the waterfront at the pier (keep an eye out for dolphins). There are some amazing views from the area if you like hiking. Also interesting to check out are the abandoned famine cottages, located on the hills.

Unlike the Ring of Kerry, the roads around Dingle are mostly inaccessible to tour buses (they are too narrow and there are some passes that are too short for buses to squeeze through). If you have a car, Conor Pass is an amazing drive, with breathtaking views. While Dingle might seem like a small town with not much to offer, the magic of the peninsula is sure to captivate anyone.
