| 10 Places to Stay

The peaceful village of Castlegregory has many attractions for holiday-makers, with glorious scenery, long golden sands, plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities, and the benefit of two towns only a short drive away. There is accommodation to suit every pocket, from fine country-house hotels to guest houses and caravan and camping sites. Castlegregory is located on the spectacular Dingle Peninsula between Dingle and Tralee, and overlooked by towering mountains. The beach is the longest in Ireland at 12 miles, stretching way beyond the village in either direction. Just north of Castlegregory is the Maharees Peninsula, which has more lovely beaches and clean, safe waters. Trips to the Maharee Islands are especially rewarding for nature-lovers and archaeologists. Castlegregory is well-known for surfing, windsurfing and scuba diving, which is organised by the Waterworld centre. Other sports enjoyed locally include swimming, canoeing, waterskiing, sea and river fishing, sailing, horse-riding, pony-trekking and hiking. Bird-watching is popular too. And golfers will find a beautiful nine-hole course outside the village on the shores of Lough Gill - a freshwater lake and famous breeding ground for noisy natterjack toads. Castlegregory Pattern Day is a summer highlight involving pie-eating and Guinness-drinking, and village nightlife revolves around pubs and traditional music.
