Located on Ireland's western coastline, Dingle sits between scenic mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. Home to just over 2,000 permanent residents, Dingle thrives as a regional fishing and tourism center, drawing travelers with its small-town charm and relaxed atmosphere. Maintaining a distinct cultural identity from the rest of the country, Dingle sits in the middle of one of Ireland's largest "Gaeltacht" regions--officially sanctioned districts where the Irish language remains the primary dialect for most residents. Many of the town's shops double as traditional pubs, which are the best places to get a feel for this spirited region. Find out how to plan Ireland trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

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.
