The Ring of Kerry is world-renowned, and the Dingle Peninsula is also well worth seeing. The coast is a mesmerising chain of sandy beaches, many of them devoted to aquatic sports. The north of Dingle is something of an open-air museum with historical monuments and ancient sites scattered throughout the countryside. There is something for everyone on the Dingle Peninsula, from scenic tours of Slea Head to superb golf courses.
