Ruth If you want to see some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in the world Go to Dingle .It also has over two thousand ancient monuments.One of them is also the highest ring fort in Europe.I bring tourists there  every two weeks during the touring season.During the winter I try to get down there for a week in every month.I'll put some photos up on the site next week.John Benny has made great improvements to his menu

Yes Allan ,you are quite right. Dingle is on most tours of the south west of Ireland.Tours will spend two nights in Killarney and from there will tour the ring of Kerry on one day and the Dingle peninsula on the next day,before setting out either for The Cliffs of Moher or south east to Cork.As for the singing there are some great music pubs in Killarney town.

Now, the last time I was in western Ireland, I spent a couple of nights in Killarney and there were several bus companies which used the hotel I was at. Most evenings I made my way around the town's pubs which were filled with singin'-their-hearts-out bus groups. They all seemed to have done the Dingle loop. That was two years ago. I don't know if things have changed since then.

Reading itineraries of the major tour companies that do Ireland.  I have friends/clients that did a fly/drive to Ireland (before I got them)and when I asked if they went to Dingle replied "No, everyone here said there was nothing there to see".  While I am glad to see an awarenes program for Dingle, I also have mixed emotions about it being the next "must go" in Ireland.

I don't know what you're reading, but the Dingle is featured in virtually every article written about the Irish countryside. Geez, I think I've done about seven pieces on it and included it in others. It's beautiful and well-known. If anything, I was afraid editors were getting a little tired of it.

I agree about Dingle - Kodak moments everywhere and friendly people plus lunch at John Bennies..  Sadly overlooked by most tour companies.  I go every chance I can get.     Another sadly overlooked experience is the National Irish Folk Theatre in Tralee.  I have been twice and plan to go again during my upcoming tour (my 13th) in April.  Singing and Dancing and sometimes tearjerking and all in Gaelic.  We are given a Cheat Sheet but you don't really need it - you will understand every word, movement and emotion.

thanks Allie, that is a huge compliment. I thought it was one of the most dramatic and beautiful places I had ever seen too. And thanks for the tip about the Dingle peninsular Michael..I will put it on my go to list for the next time I'm in Ireland. And apologies to all for my 'Island' typo!!

The most dramatic places in Ireland are The Slea Head drive on the Dingle peninsula and the Antrim coast road from Belfast to Derry including the Giants Causway.A lot of excellent development work being carried on there at  this time.

Ms. Coghill, when I visited the Giants Causeway I thought it was the most dramatic place I had ever seen. These are the first photographs of the Causeway that give me that same feeling of awe.
