Dingle

From Openwaterpedia

Dingle (Irish: An Daingean or Daingean Uí Chúis, meaning Ó Cúis' fort) is a small port town in County Kerry on southwest Ireland’s Dingle Peninsula, known for its rugged scenery, trails and sandy beaches. The only town on the Dingle Peninsula, it sits on the Atlantic coast, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) southwest of Tralee and 71 kilometres (40 mi) northwest of Killarney. Principal industries in the town are tourism, fishing and agriculture: Dingle Mart (livestock market) serves the surrounding countryside.

A statue of long-time harbour resident Fungie the dolphin is by the waterfront. Dingle Oceanworld Aquarium has penguins, otters and sharks. To the northwest, Gallarus Oratory is an ancient dry-stone church with sloping sides. Clifftop Dún Beag is a prehistoric promontory fort to the southwest.
