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.

Routes can be walked in either direction.
