The quaint little fishing village of Dingle with its brightly coloured shops and pubs is a 50 minute drive from the International Hotel and is a wonderful throwback to this mainly Irish speaking region. It is a mecca for visitors who come to experience its unique culture, colour and flavour along with the magnificent Dingle Peninsula which contains some of Ireland’s most beautiful scenery but also contains a wealth of historic sites such as Dunbeg Fort, Gallarus Oratory and the 6th century Riasc Monastic settlements. Don’t miss the legendary Slea Head Scenic Drive – 26 miles of the most astounding beauty you’ll find anywhere.
