The three-day event is very well organised, with each day having its own choice of walking routes. The festival kicks off with a two-hour low-level looped walk from Dingle town. Starting time is 5.30pm and the walk takes in some of the stunning Dingle Way. Cover charge is €10. On Saturday and Sunday, there is a selection of three walks depending on your walking capabilities, with an easy, moderate and difficult trail on offer.

Explore Dingle's Magic

Dingle Walking FestivalThe Dingle Peninsula is a haven of natural beauty and this festival is the perfect opportunity to explore its magic, be that from the peak of Brandon Mountain, in the depths of the glens or on a simple looped walk through the area. Each walk is led by an experienced local so you will be in safe hands. There is no prior notification necessary to take part in the festival but make sure not to forget your hiking boots and raingear!
