About the Location of Annascaul House Holiday Home
Situated in the heart of the Dingle peninsula Annascaul lies between Tralee/Killarney and the beautiful fishing port of Dingle. Beaches and mountains form a stunning scenery and provide for a huge number of activities. But even if you just look to lie back and relax - you'll find your peace here as well.



Annascaul village has a church, shops and a number of pubs. It has a mystical past where myth and legend abound. Ogham stones, Ring Forts and Castles can be found dotted throughout the surrounding countryside. Knockane hamlet are the remains of a multiple cist cairn with an inscribed cross nearby and is only 2kms away.

Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean Kerry’s coastline is renowned for its spectacular Blue Flag beaches and stunning scenery. Inch Strand, a four mile long, Blue Flag beach, with breath-taking scenery, is just a seven minute drive from Annascaul village. The scenic strand also was background in several movies, e.g The Playboy of the Western World and Ryan's Daughter.

Dingle town, with its abundance of shops, pubs and seafood restaurants as well as a colourful busy little fishing harbour, is 15 kms away. The spectacular Slea Head Drive is a exceptionally picturesque corniche road and leads you past prehistoric remains along the rugged coastline with glorious scenery including the Blasket Islands and small sandy beaches dotted among the Cliffs.

 

The wild Slieve Mish Mountain Range offers plenty of Walking and Hiking possibilities for all tastes. The scenic route between Inch and Camp is starting point of a hill walk to Caherconree Stone Fort at 2050 ft, possibly the highest structure of this type in Ireland. Views from the mountain are spectacular. A must for the more ambitious hiker is Mount Brandon on the western tip of the peninsula. Several routes are possible but all of them provide more stunning views on the Peninsula, the islands and on the Atlantic Coastline.

sightseeing trips to Killarney National Park and the Ring of Kerry
angling in mountain rivers and on the Atlantic - fishing trips start from Dingle Port.
golfing in Dingle, Killarney and Tralee
