The whole of Dingle Harbour on a bright summer's day. Little wonder Fungie the Dingle Dolphin chose this place as his home. The water is so clean.

WW2 Lookout Post

WW2 Lookout Post

This lookout post, next to Eask Tower, was one of 83 of identical design built around Ireland's coastline. Manned 24 hrs/day they were also used as navigational aids by Allied pilots. The word EIRE was often displayed on the land in large letters so the pilots knew where they were.

Fungie Statue

Fungie Statue

This statue to the 'Dingle Dolphin' takes pride of place near the marina. I have visited Fungie by boat several times but I once went paddle-boarding in the harbour and saw him swim right under my board! He is very friendly and loves humans.

Dick Mack's Pub

Dick Mack's Pub

Originally a creamery and now part-bar, part-leather workshop. As the sign famously states..."Where is Dick Mack's? Opposite the church. Where is the church? Opposite Dick Mack's".

Foxy John's Pub

Part-bar, part-hardware store. Another wonderful and quirky place to find refreshment, or a bag of nails.
