  • This is a relatively expensive trip, although it is a place where you could spend all day or go out and come back in after a walk round the town if you wanted compared with activities you can do once ...  more »
  • This is a good aquarium, spolied by permitting too many people to be present at one time. The route through the exhibits is confusing - it's possibkle to get lost or miss some exhibit! The fish are ni...  more »
  • Not huge but good selection of sea creatures. There is even a water tunnel where you're literally under a large fish tank and can have a panoramic view inside. Great fun, especially for kids.  more »

  • I was surprised by how big this aquarium was, layout and range of things for kids was great. 2 hours flew past and we almost had to drag our 4 year old away at the end of our visit. Your ticket also lasts for the whole day so you can go back later if you want, handy if there's a special activity you're​ keen to see (a range of them run throughout the day).
  • Really nice spot on a rainy day.. The guy giving the talk on the snake was really good... I detest them but he got me to face my fear and touch the snake.. 100% recommended... well done to all at Dingle Oceanworld Aquarium...
  • Great diversity of fish, unexpectedly bigger inside, they also protect a bunch of penguins and otters. Have daily feeding times and reptiles handling when kids can participate, great for children. The place includes a kids zone, a café and shop. Ticket is available all day long, so you can go out of the building and return later on if needed.
  • Absolutely brilliant! There was so much to see. Getting to touch the sting Ray was an experience I'll never forget. Children of all ages will love it. Great accessibility for disabled.
  • I absolutely loved it! I spend here a few good hours and had a great time. I'll definitely visit again, even if just too see that adorable puffer fish ♡

Where to stay in Dingle

Dingle Town represents a relaxed, artistic destination known for having plenty of affordable bed and breakfasts and other specialty accommodations. Many of these cluster right in the town's center, although the town also has a number of hotels, hostels, and other lodging for tourists. Here it's even normal to stumble upon a pub offering accommodation. A more luxurious (and often costly) option for travelers taking in the beauty of this peninsula is to stay in a scenic guesthouse overlooking Dingle Bay, which you can find in or right outside of town.
