Dingle (An Daingean Mór in Irish) is a growing town in County Kerry in the Republic of Ireland, on the Atlantic coast some 50 km west-south-west of Tralee and 80 km west-north-west of Killarney. The town is situated on a natural harbour below Slievanea mountain on the large Dingle peninsula, which lies south of the River Shannon and north of the Ring of Kerry.
There are many opportunities to hear traditional Celtic music in the town, particularly in the summer tourist season. Dingle has a number of bars or "pubs" as they are known as well as restaurants and cafes. For a number of years it has been possible to rely on a resident dolphin named Fungi showing up for tour boats operating from the harbour. Dingle has a growing arts and craft trade- world-renowned jeweller Brian de Staic operates from the town as does the famous pottery master Louis Mulcahy.
