Dingle Way (4 ed) by Sandra Bardwell

The Dingle Way runs for 114 miles (183 km) around the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. It starts and finishes in Tralee, accessible by train or bus from Dublin and from Kerry Airport. The complete walk takes eight days, but it can easily be shortened. The Dingle Way follows country lanes, quiet roads and cliff-top paths, punctuated by long stretches of glorious beach walking. It offers spectacular seascapes and mountain views. The peninsula is rich in wildlife, archaeology and charming Irish pubs.

It contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday on the Dingle Way: the Way in sections, with summaries of distance, terrain and where to find food and drink; concise background on prehistory, heritage and wildlife; information about climbing Mount Eagle and Mount Brandon; a special feature on the Blasket Islands; planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane; detailed mapping of the Dingle Way on 16 pages (scale 1:55,000); in full colour, with 75 photographs; and printed on rainproof paper throughout.

Dingle Way (4 ed) Reviews

Rucksack Readers is a specialist guidebook publisher with a very creditable range of products. These include four guides to Irish long-distance walks, one of which is the Dingle Way, which I used myself some years ago, and found to be one of the best walking guides I had ever handled.

-- Margaret Tees * Irish Mountain Log, Summer 2014, page 51 *

The detail in this book convinced us that we could actually go do the trek. We bought two other books on walks in Ireland and none of the others were nearly as good as this one for the Dingle Way. The others were more overviews. This was a very specific trail guide with precise distances, markers, turns etc.

The indispensable guide for the Dingle Way ... water-resistant pages in a ring binder, with color photos and good maps.
