Plan Your Visit

Dingle Lit is striving to deliver the festival with full regard to climate change and other human related impacts on the environment. We encourage you to use public transport to arrive in Dingle and when moving around the peninsula.

Travelling to Dingle

By train

The nearest train station is in Tralee and is directly beside the bus station to take a bus onwards to Dingle. You could also travel to Killarney by train, however there is no direct public transport link to Dingle.

By bus

The 275 bus from Tralee to Dingle operates 10 services daily, from 6am until 10pm.

By car

From Dublin/Galway/Limerick direction you will pass through Tralee and travel through Blennerville to the north side of the Dingle Peninsula. From here, you have two route options. The first, is to take the Conor Pass mountain road. The second is to take the left turn onto the N86 after the Junction Bar and travel through the villages of Camp, Annascaul and Lispole. The Conor Pass provides truly wonderful views but is a trickier road to negotiate, and not for nervous drivers.

By plane

Kerry Airport in Farranfore is approx. one hour from Dingle. You can fly to Kerry from Dublin, London, Manchester and Frankfurt.
