The Dingle Way is a National Way-marked Trail that is approximately 179km in length, taking about 8-9 days for the average, fit adult to complete.

This variety of landscapes never fails to take everyone’s breath away, just adding to the magic and beauty of the trail. You are guaranteed stunning views and spectacular scenery as you venture across the quiet tarmac roads, the charming cliff paths and the rocky mountain terrain.

I started making my Porridge Bread about a year ago. It was so popular with guests that I carried on making it.
