Hiking in Ireland: Kenmare or Dingle

Jump to last reply

My family plans to spend two weeks in Ireland in August - the focus of the trip will be walking, our favorite activity. I've set up our first two days in Ballyvaugn to hike in the Burrens and recover from the flight. Then a week in Connemara, based just outside of Connemara National Park. This is the question:

We would love to hike in the Dingle area and the Kenmare area, both seem to have wonderful walking opportunities. But we only have a week left and don't want to spend it driving between the two places. We'd rather just settle in one, then spend the last day in a B&B near Shannon. So - which should we chose - Dingle or Kenmare? It's killing me to miss one of them so I just have to assume we will come back and visit Ireland again soon.

Any suggestions? Everyone raves about Dingle but if we stay in Kenmare we can walk in both the Beara Peninsula and the Kerry Peninsula. But Kerry is supposed to be very crowded...
