Dingle Travel guide
Dingle : Michelin's recommendations
Dingle's appeal boils down to its rows of colourful façades, the quay, which comes alive when the fishing boats come ashore in the evening. It also lends itself to a pub crawl, a national sport here. Legend has it that the town used to be able to boast almost as many pubs as inhabitants. Although it doesn't quite live up to that promise, there are enough watering holes to leave you spoilt for choice (more than 50 for 1 500 inhabitants!).
