Things to do in Dingle Town

Things to do in Dingle Town

Are you planning a trip to Dingle this Summer?

Our little corner in County Kerry has an abundance of things to do, places to go and experiences to tick off. We get asked often what to do, where to go, where to eat/drink, and everything in between. Dingle is a small town in comparison to other towns in Ireland but it certainly packs a punch.
We always recommend connecting with the locals as much as you can - this helps you get an authentic feel for what Dingle Town is all about.

To help you guys out, we have put together this short blog post on some of our favourite places in Dingle Town. Most things are within walking distance too!
