3 nights on Dingle Peninsula

Plan to drive from Dublin on May 29 and spend 3 nights exploring the peninsula and then return to Dublin.

Interested to hear what you think would be good routes and whether we should stay the 3 nights in Dingle and go out from there or stay in different places.

Thanks for the help.

@akandal

Although it is on the Slea Drive the pub is quite remote, with only a few permanently inhabited houses within walking distance. It would be tough enough to make a living from it, especially in winter. In partnership with another local pub they diversified into craft brewing some years ago, and I think this is where they see the future.

But as Harvey says, the area is not short of interesting pubs!

:-) A remote pub is not a good thing when it comes to the much stricter drink driving laws! Will just have to keep my eye out for something else!

In Dingle itself Foxy Johns and Currans would be my first choices. The Courthouse bar is good too, but the roof is very low for my 6.4 husband!
