The Dingle Way trail starts in Tralee. Alongside the railings of the park to the right of the museum you will find the sign marking the official start of the Dingle Way. Across the park, you will find Princes Street. In Princes street turn left and continue to Princes Quay and onto a roundabout. Turn right to start your Dingle Way adventure by following the canal path to Blennerville. Follow the canal path up to the bridge opposite the Blennerville Windmill. Cross the canal towards the village.
The Dingle Way follows the main N86 road to Dingle for a short stretch across Blennerville. After crossing the canal, take the second left turn. Follow some quiet country back roads as you ascend into the flanks of the Slieve Mish mountain range. Follow the trail for about 3 kilometers to Tonavane, where the trail turns west into the open mountainside. Follow the trail across marshy terrain and walk past several breathtaking glacial valleys.
On your way, you will also come across the preserved ruins of Killelton Oratory. The final section of today's stage takes you down to a valley, crosses the Finglas River, and continues uphill towards a minor road. Turn to the right and follow the trail downhill for about 1 kilometer to Camp.
After Camp, take the trail to the west of the Finglas River crossing. For about 2 km, the Dingle Way guides you towards the southwest while slowly ascending out of the valley. During this section, you can admire the views of the Caherconree Mountain (835m) and the megalithic fort located close to its top. At 235 m you will cross the saddle between the peaks of Corrin and Knockbrack and then you will continue your walk with amazing views of the mountain ridges of Moanlaur and Knockmore to your left.
The path then gradually descends into a small forest, the only one on the entire Dingle Way. You walk through the forest for about 2 kilometers. When you emerge from the forest, follow a minor back road towards the south until the Emlagh River. The Dingle Way then gradually turns to the west and reveals the beautiful views of Inch Beach.
After an energizing break at the beach, continue your walk towards Maum. From the beach, the Dingle Way ascends behind a line of houses facing towards the bay and guides you through small roads away from the coast. After rounding the summit of Knockafeehane you will be able to see the glacial valley on which Lough Annscaul is located. Walk for another 2 kilometers into the heart of Annascaul.
