You start this ride by climbing the legendary Connor Pass, with beautiful views all around. After a long descent you have to travel along the north side of the peninsula on the main road to Tralee.

A stop at the lovely Blennerville Windmill outside Tralee breaks up this part of the trip.

It can be combined with our Slea Head Loop and the Tralee to Dingle ride to create an outstanding two or three-day trip.


Dingle is small town with a beautiful location in a sheltered harbour and excellent nightlife.

From Dingle you can get a ferry to the Great Blasket Island with Dingle Bay Charters.

Connor Pass is one of the most spectacular roads in Ireland, with amazing views both north and south. It has a gentle gradient all the way up.

Blennerville Windmill on the outskirts of Tralee is a beautifully restored windmill.
