Harvey Maps Dingle Peninsula Map | Review

A proper made-for-walkers map detailing one of Ireland’s most popular destinations for outdoor adventure

Anyone who’s used Harvey Maps for a hike will know that they’re fine-tuned to support you in the act of exploring wild areas. They’re maps specifically made by walkers for walkers and the company has been doing this since as far back as 1977.

Their process is painstaking too, because not only do they spend weeks and weeks plotting their maps based on aerial photos but they also get out on the ground to check where farmers have added or removed fencing, where forestry might have been felled, or perhaps where a pub might have opened up or poured its last pint.

Waterproof, durable, lightweight and easy to fold, Harvey Maps are also extremely practical for walkers to use, saving them from problems that a lot of other maps fall short on. 

Recent news from the brand is that they’ve just released a map that covers the whole Dingle Peninsula in southwest Ireland. This is a pretty big deal as, as far as we’re aware, nothing anywhere near as comprehensive as this currently exists. So, if you want to explore the Slieve Mish mountains or climb the craggy ridges of Mount Brandon, there’s now a resource that will provide you with information on the exact lay of the land and the footpaths to follow or obstacles to avoid. They’ve also plotted the whole of the Dingle Way onto the map too, giving those walking the 179km trail details of every turn and contour and the towns and the amenities they’ll find along the way – all contained in one 60g map that’ll fit into a trouser pocket. 

1074 square kilometres are shown in 1:30,000 scale on a two-sided map and, as an added extra, the Blasket Islands are also demonstrated in 1:50,000 scale.

The map slots into the extensive Superwalker collection from Harvey, which also comprises mapping of the Brecon Beacons, Peak District, the Cuillin of Skye and more.
