Dingle, County Kerry

The town of Dingle is one of the few remaining communities where Irish is generally spoken and it nestles in a lovely harbour.

There are excellent restaurants in Dingle and fun bars where you can test out your Irish.

Dingle is also a great place to begin a lovely day drive around the Ring of Dingle.

The Ring of Dingle is on a coastal road (wide and easy to drive) winding high above the deep-blue waters of the Atlantic and it leads you back into the past.

There are bee-hive huts, pre-historic grave yards and sweeping views of abandoned potato fields where desperate Irish walked away during the famine and never came back to farm their land.

Irish Family Names from Dingle: Ashe, Boland, Bric, Cleary, Coleman, Devane, Feirtear, Fenton, Garvey, Houlihan, Keane, Kennedy, Long, Manning, McDonald, Moriarty, Murphy, O'Connor, O'Neill, O'Shea, Rohan, Slattery, Walker and Wallace.
