Just walking around this old town on a sunny day is a pleasure. Lovely cafes and shops to browse in.

''Dingle -once cited as 'the most beautiful place on earth' by the National Geographic;( was voted among the top 18 destinations in the world by Trip Advisor andTop 9 in Europe in 2009) CNN recently recommended it as a very favourable winter destination; it is listed as one of the top 10 places to be on New Year's Eve - all of these accolades refer to County Kerry's stunningly beautiful Dingle Peninsula.
Fishing and farming have long been the major industries, but tourism has become an increasingly important business in the town, particularly since the filming of "Ryan's Daughter" in the area in 1969.
As a market town and fishing port, Dingle has long been well supplied with pubs; in recent years the number has hovered around 52, and the variety is almost as great as the number. There are large, modern pubs and pubs so small that five's a crowd; one that sells wellingtons and leather belts, another that sells sheets and blankets, and another that sells everything from beds and bicycles to creosote and fertiliser. Much of the social life of the town revolves around the pubs: during the winter there are card games and quizzes. In the summer pool tables are removed to leave more room for tourist customers, and Irish music is played almost every night in about ten pubs.

The Neighborhood

Before the Age of Discovery, Europeans believed Dingle Peninsula—the most westerly point in Europe—to be the edge of the known world. The area has the greatest concentration of ancient monuments in Ireland, and stunning scenery to boot. The 25-mile drive around the coast is packed with ancient sites, walking trails, museums, and photo ops.
There are standing stones, beehive huts, the sixth-century Riasc monastic settlement, a promontory fort topped with an ogham stone, and views of the Blasket Islands from Slea Head. The Blasket Centre explains the islands’ way of life and literary legacy. Gallarus Oratory is a fine example of dry-stone masonry; it’s shaped somewhat like an upside-down boat and is in near perfect condition some 1,300 years after construction. At Kilmalkedar Church, you’re guaranteed a spot in heaven if you climb through the narrow window three times, according to local folklore.
Dingle town is bustling with an aquarium, seal sanctuary, boat trips to the Blaskets, and art galleries. It offers excellent seafood restaurants and traditional music sessions in the pubs, too.

  • My stay in Dingle was lovely and the accommodations were flavorful. The en suite room was clean and comfortable, however the house was messy and there were small children running about, starting very early in the morning. Also, the walk into Dingle town was further than advertised and extremely dark @ night. I would definitely advise bringing a flashlight!
    Judy is charming and helpful and she has a sweet family, but if you're looking for a quiet stay, this would not be the place!

  • Judy made us feel like part of the family.

    March 2014
  • Judy was a great host and was also there for me when I fell ill! The room was nice and we could also cook in the kitchen, that was great. The walk into town was maybe a bit more than 15 min (and we are fast walkers) but that didn't disturb much.
    Thanks a lot Judy!

    March 2014
  • Judy is a great host - very friendly & helpful. Our room was spotless, warm, and quiet - exactly what we were hoping for.

    December 2012
  • Our room and en-suite was clean and had plenty of space for both of us. Although Judy provided us with an extra blanket we did find the room a little chilly at night. We also felt that it was probably a bit more that 15 minutes walk from the main town.

    Response from Judy:

    The guests often find the room too warm and turn the radiator off. I can forget to check it and turn it back on occasionally. But we do have the heating timed to come on at night usually on the cold nights.

  • Lovely large room in a bustling family home. Judy showed me around, gave me some pointers on places to try in town and left me to it. Just what I was looking for. A highly recommended home-stay.

    November 2012
  • Stayed with Judy for 2 nights. Lovely place, room was clean and had an ensuite. We were welcome to help ourselves to use of the kitchen but were out most of the time so didn't get the opportunity.

    Very accomating, would recommend.

    November 2012
  • Judy's house was exactly what we were looking for. The room was clean, convenient and comfortable. Judy is really friendly, helped us a lot with our travel plans and her family was fun as well. It was not directly in the center of town, which we thought was great. It was a short 10 minute walk to everything, which allows you some space away from all of the "noise" of the small town. Would highly recommend her place!

    November 2012
  • Judy was very kind to pick us up at the bus stop. The room she had for us was very clean and tidy. She provided a good do-it-yourself breakfast and coffee.

    October 2012
  • Judy was a most gracious host to us. She picked us up at bus stop and gave us great suggestions for the Trad music in the local pubs. When she found we wanted to see the scenery of Dingle Peninsula she arranged a wonderful tour within minutes. Her son Joe, and daughter were sweet as well and made us feel as part of the family. The room was spacious with an ensuite bath which was a plus, the first on this trip. We would certainly recommend Judy's room for others to stay in a beautiful area of Ireland.
