Annascaul is located on the main Tralee - Dingle road (N86).
It is approximately 35 minutes drive from Tralee, 20 minutes drive from Dingle and 50 minutes from Killarney.
If travelling to Annascaul from Tralee, pay attention to the signposting, as the Tralee-Dingle road diverges in two just before Camp village. One route leads to Dingle via the Conor Pass, the other via Annascaul.
If coming by car it is worth noting that there is no petrol station in the village. The nearest are in Dingle, Camp or between Inch and Castlemaine.
Inch Beach. A beautiful three mile long blue flag beach jutting into Dingle Bay, Inch is a popular local surf spot and provides beautiful views of Dingle Bay. A bar/restaurant/shop on the beach offers shelter and warmth after and enjoyable stroll on the beach. The beach is popular with anglers and is renowned for bass fishing.
The South Pole Inn. A cozy tavern once owned by Antarctic explorer Tom Crean, the South Pole Inn is full of interesting photos and memorabilia.
Surfing is popular at nearby Inch Beach. Boards and wetsuits are available to hire from the cafe on the beach. Also, during the summer months, two surf schools offer lessons and equipment hire on the beach.
If you stop in the South Pole Inn, try a pint of Crean's Lager. Named after Tom Crean, a localman who accompanied Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton on their ill-fated Antarctic expeditions, Crean's Lager is brewed locally. After returning from Antarctica, Tom Crean opened the South Pole Inn.
