THINGS TO DO

Breege's Recommendations

Beaches

BÉAL BÁN BEACH (green coast beach 2019) is a must for a walk or safe swim. Situated in front of Granville House, it is a great spot from which to watch our glorious sunsets.  Less safe for swimming, CLOGHER BEACH and COUMEENOLE BEACH where the currents can be very strong are nonetheless worth a visit.  Coumeenole was used for filming Ryan's Daughter, it is located just north of Slea Head on the western extremity of the Dingle peninsula. 

Cultural Sites

 

MUSAEM CHORCA DHUIBHNE.

Situated in Ballyferriter Village, this is a great place to get a taste of the archaeology, history and culture of the Dingle Peninsula.

GALARUS ORATORY.

BEEHIVE HUTS (Clocháin)

These 6th/7th Century monk's/hermit's huts on the Slea Head peninsula were the model for the Star Wars set built in Ballyferriter.  Read Wikipedia's description here.
