Self catering holiday accommodation, caravans and chalets in Dingle
Dingle is situated in one of the main tourist areas of Ireland, which means that it must be a great place to visit and stay in self catering cottage accommodation. The area is on the south west coast of Ireland and is therefore blessed with stunning landscapes. The town itself is on the Dingle Peninsula and has a great mixture of seafood restaurants and traditional pubs, meaning that eating and drinking will be a definite pleasure.
The spectacular coastline is made up of green promontories and crags and with the ocean battering beneath it is a pleasure to walk along the top and observe. The walks may be bracing, even in the hottest weather, but it is well worth it for the lovely views. Some of the cottage rentals look right out onto the stunning coastline. There are other outdoor pursuits you can take part in as well as walking and hiking. There are great cycle paths and you can also go out to sea and fish as well as fish on inland rivers. There are other water sports as well and if you prefer something drier there is always the golf.
If you do like the idea of discovering the best countryside that the area has to offer, then it is worth investigating the 179 kilometre Ring of Kerry trail. The rural holiday homes tend to be in areas which have an interesting history, many are near to ancient monuments, stone circles and tombs and it is worth taking a look and imagining what life may have been like here long ago. You may even get to hear some of the interesting folklores.
If you would rather look at buildings then you may like to take a trip to the island Skellig Michael which has a monastery on it that is an UNESCO world heritage site and is 1400 years old. It is great that the building is still intact and this is probably due to its remote location. If you prefer to travel a little further away from your holiday rental accommodation home then you may like to visit Tralee or Killarney which are not far away and have more of the things on offer that you would associate with a bigger town. With Kerry being one of the warmest counties in Ireland it tends to be warm but it can get very wet.
