Dingle Bay harbour

Dingle Harbour – just outside our Dive Center

We are situated on the Marina in Dingle Town, an old fishing port. Dingle, or An Daingean, is on the beautiful Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Southwest Ireland. It is a very busy tourist centre, with lots of attractions to suit all tastes. It was voted “Foody Town of Ireland” in 2014 and the restaurants and locally produced food, is second to none. Pubs are lively and most evenings, live music will be on offer.

As well as the Scuba Diving and Snorkelling, which we offer, there is a wide range of other activities available. If you enjoy water-sports, then there is sailing and kayaking, as well as surfing. If you enjoy walking, then the Dingle Way is for you. This path will take you around the stunning Slea Head and afford you unsurpassed views of the Blasket Islands. Horse riding and trekking can also be accessed through the riding stables, which are situated in and around the town itself.
