Dingle

Dingle is a nice little sea port with craft shops, lots of brightly painted pubs, cafes and seafood restaurants. This little town is ideally situated for long walking tours through the scenic landscape, and in the evenings you can enjoy traditional Irish music in one of Dingle's quaint pubs.

Funghi, the Dingle dolphin

Most people, however, come here to see Funghi. Funghi, the bottlenose dolphin, has been living in Dingle Bay since 1983, and you can book a boat trip to see him or even hire a wet suit and swim with Funghi. People who have swum with the dolphin tell that Funghi really enjoys human company. The people in Dingle are happy to have their dolphin, but they also know that Funghi is a wild animal and free to leave Dingle Bay at any time.
