DINGLE TOWN

I thought it might be good to share some photos of Dingle Town, my nearest town, in fact.  It is the main town on the Dingle Peninsula, in west County Kerry, South West Ireland.

This is Main Street, Dingle. I started taking these just as shops were beginning to open up again, after lockdown, and I wished I had done it sooner when it was completely deserted – so much easier to stand wherever you want in order to capture the best views.

No shortage of pubs in Dingle.

Foxy John’s Pub above and Curran’s Pub below are very traditional old Irish pubs which would sell all sorts of supplies, as well as alcohol. They might sell anything from bed linen or food to gardening supplies. In Foxy John’s above you can see the vegetable seed packets and onion sets displayed.

This is St James’ Church, Main Street, Dingle, a very modest looking building which is a venue for many concerts and is original home to the very popular Other Voices, which is shown internationally on TV.  Many famous musicians have performed here.  It is usually live streamed to the local pubs, as there are not enough seats in the building for the huge crowd that comes to Dingle for the Other Voices event.
