Any info on the Dingle Way would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone know if there are any baggage carriers operating this route?

Thanks for that website, it has given my wife plenty options for accomodation and a good idea of the terrain. She hopes to do it this August with a few friends. Still hoping to find out about baggage transfer, may use local taxis if available. Thanks again

Geordie: If you are still looking for information on the Dingle Way here are some pointers. I did this walk last August and it is one of the most beautiful walks I have ever done. The views and the flowers are incredible. Very few walkers on the trails. I am a lonely walker and I was in paradise to have the whole country side for myself. The walk is easy but there is only one tough day that can be difficult if it rains (Mt Brandon) it is very muddy downhill. About the luggage carrier, most B&B will carry your bag to the next B&B for a 10 euro fee. Most B&B are very good. Because I am very busy during the year, I used an irish company to do my reservations and luggage transfer. There were excellent and not that expensive and for what I found out during the walk (about prices and fees)I believe you save very little when you organize it yourselves. They can also accomodate whatever you want (rest days, side trips, etc...) Furthermore, there are areas of the way that are not very well marked and the instructions given by Southwest walks are very good. If you are interested in the list of B&B I used I'll be happy to email it to you. Cheers. http://www.southwestwalksireland.com

I have transfered these from another page as it makes more sense they should be on here.

Hi Tom: I forgot to mention that there is some road walking (mainly country roads and tracks)in the Dingle Way. If you are a purist (no road walking) that may present a problem. However, if you are not a purist, when you finish the Dingle way, ride the bus from Tralee to Doolin (via Cliffs of Moher). It is about 4 hs. ride and it costs approximately 15 euros. Make sure it is the bus that connects through the ferry (faster and fabulous). In Doolin, go to the pier and take the ferry to the Aran Islands and walk the Aran Way (1 or 2 days). Unfortunately there are areas that are very touristy, but there are still areas nobody goes, especially if you take one of the early ferries: It is a mind blowing place, I have never seen anything like it. It is incredible! The pictures and postcards don't begin to show the beauty and strengeness of that place. And if you like irish music, Doolin is the place to be (a small village in the path of the Burren Way).

Sounds fantastic WW. I have already started to look at things on the internet.
I would be interested to know about your B/B's. Perhaps you could e-mail me. My address is in my profile.

Tom

Wife and friends now booked up for Cleveland way this summer, due to time and travel restraints, but many thanks for info - I may use it myself next year. You make it sound like an excellent walk.
