Slí na Sláinte Dingle Town Walk

This short town walk is a great way to introduce yourself to Dingle and meet some locals while getting some fresh air and exercise.

Slí na Sláinte means 'path to health'.Mapped, measured walking routes have been developed by the Irish Heart Foundation - the national heart and stroke charity - to encourage people of all ages and abilities to walk more for health and leisure. A map board is located at the start of the walk to inform people of the distance and duration, signs are located at each kilometre point to encourage and motivate walkers while directional arrows guide people along the route. You'll find Slí na Sláinte walking routes all over Ireland.

Dingle's Slí na Sláinte is a 3.3 kilometres circular walk and brings you close to some historical buildings and points of interest in Dingle such as the church of St.James, the Rice House, the Holy Stone and the old Dingle Hospital and Workhouse overlooking the town.

Slí na Sláinte Dingle - Route

Slí na Sláinte, Daingean Uí Chúis is 3.3km long, starting at the roundabout on entering the town from Tralee. The route continues along the quays for over 1km, passing the marina and pier with beautiful views over the harbour. At the roundabout, veer right and walk uphill, passing Dingle Community Hospital, built in 1852 as a Workhouse. Continue along Goat Street, site of the Holy Stone (named after the holes used for grinding corn), which follows onto Main Street. Of interest in the Main St. are the medieval church of St. James, the former site of the Sovereign's House and the 18th century Rice House, which was to have received Queen Marie Antoinette had she escaped from her Paris jail. At the bottom of Main Street, turn right at the Small Bridge to return along the Mall to the starting point.

Tá Slí na Sláinte, Daingean Uí Chúis, 3.3 km ar fhaid, ag a thús ag an dtimpeallán mar a dtagann bóthar Thrá Lí isteach sa Daingean.Leanann sí uirthi ar feadh ciliméadar thar an ché agus an muiríne mar a bhfuil radharc iontach ar an gcuan. Ag an dtimpeallán cas ar dheis agus siúl suas an cnoc thar Oispidéal Pobail an Daingin, a tógadh i 1852 mar Thigh na mBocht. Ar Shráid na nGabhar tá an Holy Stone, a ainmníodh ó na poill ann inar deineadh arbhar a mheilt. Ar na nithe ar fiú aird a dhiriú orthu ar an bPríomhshráid tá Tigh na Ríseach ón 18ú céad, mar a raibh cóir le cur ar an mBanríon Marie Antoinette dá n-éireodh leí éalú as a príosún i bPáras, láthair thí an tsabhrainn lá dá raibh agus eaglais mhéanaoiseach
