Lunch in Annascaul

Stop off and have lunch in Annascaul if  walking the Dingle Way. Annascaul Cafe and  Patcheens  are just two locations.  Therefore most people stop off at the village for something to eat after walking from Camp to Annascaul.

The  landscape  is really  diverse  where the  mountains  can be  quite barren. However over the next crest the  views  of the  ocean and  the green fields bring various  emotional highs. Getting out and  being  close to  nature and  seeing the  beauty  of grazing  cows or  ducks  flying  over  head makes  the  Dingle Way immense  in terms  of the  total  Bio Diversity. It has this in abundance.

Be  sure to  participate  in any  parts  of the  Dingle  Way.  Whether  for  10 minutes  to 4  hours  treks. The  scenery and the  magic  of The Dingle Way is spectacular.

The Dingle Way

Don’t  be afraid  of the  weather. Yes  it  is  windy and  wet but the  climate  is  temperate  and the showers  only  last 10-15  minutes  at a  time. If  longer then there  is an abundance  of cafes and restaurants  that  you  can hide  out in.  Additionally it is imortant that you  are fit and  have the physical  endurance to undertake such  walks. Most  walkers  know  that they  will be  out  for  several  hours and  they  should be  dressed  accordingly  or  at least  have  enough  food  and  clothing  in their knap sacks  when needed.  The  outings  can be as  longs  or  as  short  as  you  wish.

The trail is roughly 180 km long and   takes about  7/8  days  if  you complete it  in full.  The Dingle way has many  walking  trails  which navigate the  peninsula  between Tralee and   Dunquin / Bally David.

There are several places to eat in Annascaul village. Annascaul Cafe is a great place to have lunch  in Annascaul. The South Pole and Hanafin’s Bar also serve a cool beers.
