Location Dingle, Co. Kerry

Dingle is situated on the South West Coast of Ireland on the northern shore of Dingle Bay. The area is a challenging, new and unfrequented cruising ground with a dramatic seascape, and abounds in islands, bays and beaches that the mariner can explore.

The Skellig Rock at the southern entrance to Dingle Bay is the site of an ancient monastic settlement, while the Blasket Islands to the north are famous for their beauty and their literature.

Dingle Harbour offers shelter from all weather and is the base for an active fishing fleet. This market town is famous for its friendliness and its hospitality, and boasts excellent restaurants and fifty-two pubs! 

The Dingle Peninsula is a Gaelic-speaking area and is rich in historic sites with striking scenery. Many visitors take the option of exploring the area on foot or by bicycle.
