At Inch beach you are able to park right on the beach and in the past cars would race once a month on the sands, a nice coffee shop over looks the beach.

Take the dramtic and breathtaking Connor Pass over to Brandon; however be warned this road is not for the faint hearted and only caters for vehicles under 3 Ton, so leave your Windebago at home!!
No trip to Dingle wopuld be complete without a trip to Dingle Bay, with it's own resident Dolphin Fungie.
Fungie has adopted Dingle as his official home and you wouldn't guess from the photos that Fungie is a wild mature male Bottle Nose Dolphin.
Fungie was first spotted by the Lighthouse keeper in 1984 and has been there ever since, the local fishermen used to take their children out to swim with Fungie; He even has his own statue.
