Dingle Way Review
We can’t express how good your tour turned out. One of the best vacations we have ever taken.
Camp to Annascaul – Annascaul House, Wet and rainy from top of the first hill at the bog all the way to Annascaul. The people at Annascaul House had a coal fire going and the drying racks out when we arrived. You can’t ask for more than that. We had the entire place to ourselves so that was a nice first night.
Annascaul to Dingle – Archway Lodge. Rode with the luggage to Archway Lodge. It was raining and the walk looked like a road walk all day. This was a great decision as we got to recover all day and play tourist in Dingle.
Dingle to Dunquin. – An Portan – Rode with the luggage to Ventry and then walked the route. This was one of our favorite segments of the walk. Ronan at An Portan was great for personalized service and dinner and had a fascinating history.
Dunquin to Boherboy – An Dooneen… Mary at An Dooneen was great and the dinner they took us to was fabulous.
Boherboy to Cloghane – Benagh Farmhouse – Boherboy was actually a pretty easy day as it was almost exactly 5 kms to the cut off over the pass. In Cloghane the O’Connell tavern was lovely. The proprietor (Michael) really did a good job on dinner and made everybody feel welcome. He kept up a constant stream of chatter making it a very good evening in the Pub even for non drinkers. The Benagh Farmhouse was the best bed on the trip. The shop in the breakfast room was great too.
Cloghane to Camp – Finglas House. We cut across the neck of the peninsula and walked into Camp instead of a Taxi from Castlegregory. Mrs Daley was great. She greeted us like long lost family and fussed over Lori giving us a room with a bath instead of shower etc.
Overall a perfectly planned trip. Your B&B people were great through out. Just like you said in your instructions, your mix was good between old new etc. Also you have a very good reputation with the B&B’s. When we said we were with Tailor Made Tours they all seemed to relax as if they knew things were going to be easy and well planned. None of them minded muddy boots or wet clothes etc.
