|Photos of the Dingle Peninsula|
The Dingle Peninsula is a beautiful area of Co. Kerry with spectacular scenery.
Dingle Harbour is a natural shelter on the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland which offers shelter from the most violent of Atlantic Storms, and was described by National Geographic as ‘the most beautiful place on earth’.
The town Dingle/an Daingean itself grew and prospered because of this beautifully situated haven which, for centuries, offered sanctuary in bad weather and afforded traders sheltered moorings and a market where they could conduct business. Nowadays the harbour offers marina facilities for the sailing fraternity as well as to the local fishermen and boating community. It is used as a base by many who tour the Dingle Peninsula for its spectacular views and treasure trove of historic sites and natural features varying from awe inspiring cliffs, long sandy beaches, and picturesque villages. Warmed by the Gulf Stream the Dingle Peninsula is an all year favourite with visitors and film makers, and was used for the location for films such as Ryan’s Daughter and Far and Away.
Playing host to over one million visitors every year there is something for everyone in Co. Kerry.
