St.James Church, Dingle

4.8
#2 of 11 in Historic Sites in Dingle
For an offbeat folk music performance, head to St.James Church. With top-notch acoustics and authentic Irish instruments, this presents an alternative for those who would like to hear traditional Irish music without the noisiness of a pub. The beauty of the church venue adds to this special concert experience. While the church is also open for regular Sunday service, most tourists come here for the music. CDs are available for purchase. Arrange to visit St.James Church and other attractions in Dingle using our Dingle trip planner.

    An amazing evening of music and culture. Perfect location. Mesmerizing! On a practical note the pews were a little uncomfortable. Bring a sweater.  more »

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.
