Visit Dingle Peninsula in Ireland
Dingle is located about 45km to the west of Tralee. This western part of the Peninsula is marked by tourism. It is a Gaeltacht area where the inhabitants speak the native Gaelic or Irish language.
Dingle in Irish “Daingean Uí Chúis” or “An Daingean” is a beautiful little fishing town in the southwestern part of Ireland on the Wild Atlantic Way. The history of Dingle began in the year 1290 when a flemish family built a castle here. In 1607 Dingle was granted the privilege of being a city. (a walled town)
Today Dingle has about 2.000 inhabitants and over 70 Bed and Breakfast. But in the holiday season there are a lot more people around this little beautiful town. Here we have many pubs, and good seafood restaurants. We have many interesting historical and archaeological sites for you to tour and discover on your own with our help and guidance or as part of the daily organised tours.
Interesting day trips are possible, for instance to Conor Pass, Slea Head, the Great Basket Island or the Skelligs. The beautiful landscape around was often used as the location for films, amongst them, Ryan’s Daughter, with Robert Mitchum, Far and Away with Tom Cruise, and most recently ✨Star Wars!
On the picture left side you can see our most famous local – the dolphin “Fungie“. He has made Dingle harbour and bay His home since 1984.
Dingle Peninsula and Bay Sights – Gallarus Oratory
This old christian church is located in the west of the Dingle Peninsula. The name means “the church of the place of the foreigners”.
It is one of the most impressive archaeological sights. But it is not the only evidence of the very early settlement on the western part of Ireland nearby the Atlantic Ocean.
The oratory is right on your way, when you hike or bike the Dingle Peninsula around Slea Head. It is worth to visit and stay to learn more about the interesting architecture which is over 1.300 years old.Built in a corbel style the walls gently arch inwards to meet and form the roof.
Peter Harbison, How old is Gallarus oratory, op. cit., p. 36.
The oratory is built of stones cut on end and side to fit them together without mortar. The shape looks like an upturned boat. The stone has been positioned in a perfect way, so rain will run off and after all this time it remains watertight.The room inside is about 4.8 m x 3 m with a window to the east and a doorway to the west. At dawn on our solstice the sun rise shines through the window and out of my the door impressive for a 1300 year old design!
