I stayed at Milltown House with our Rick Steves tour in Dingle. Super nice especially with the falconer who is there daily and can participate for just $15 euro. We also arranged a crystal cutting demonstration that is tight in town. Wonderful! And we rented bikes for the day that were delivered directly to our hotel and made our way to the base of Eask Tower hike. Highlight of our whole 14 day Ireland trip. View was spectacular and had packed a picnic lunch. And pubs were off the charts. Go back in the summer. You won’t be disappointed!

I looked on Google Maps and the distance from Dingle to Minard Castle is 15 minutes, not 2 hours (unless you’re completing the whole circuit first…?). Can you clarify what makes it 2 hours?

Hi Britt – Oops! You’re right, its a very short drive :)

We did slea head drive loop, then went down to minard, so I guess it felt long ha. Thanks for pointing that out – I just updated the post.

[…] I highly recommend allowing at least two days to cover this Wild Atlantic Way itinerary. So you’ll need to camp out along the route. You can do what I did and wing it at an Airbnb along the way to experience true Irish hospitality, or book into one of the many world-class facilities en route. My top picks would be Perryville House in Kinsale, Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa, the Gougane Barra Hotel, or stay in a real-life castle! […]

We absolutely loved our castle stay at Loche Eske in Donegal. The staff was simply amazing and they took care of us from the minute we stepped out of our car. They even parked it for us!!! The amenities were amazing, and the restaurant was great,as was the nightlife right on premises.They had live music and numerous spots available to just relax and enjoy the wood-burning fire with a good book or drink. Breakfast was varied and delicious. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable.

Diana, That sounds fabulous!! Haven’t been to Donegal yet but we’ve heard great things :)
