Dingle in County Kerry is known for its vibrant character, lively pubs, great restaurants and craft shops and is situated in one of the most beautiful spots in Ireland. This small town is full of charm and character and all that is quintessentially Irish and traditional. People are warm and friendly and only too willing to help and advise and share a few friendly words.

It is a great spot from which to tour the local vicinity and take in the Slea Head Drive – one of the most scenic driving routes in Ireland and to enjoy boat trips out to the Blasket Islands and the old monastic settlement on the SKellig Islands. Dingle is situated along the Wild Atlantic Way – a route just launched this year which takes in the wild and magnificent untamed beauty of the Atlantic Coast from Donegal in the North of Ireland to Cork in the South, so there really is no better time to visit Dingle!
