Dingle, also called An Daingean or Daingean Uí Chúis in Irish, is the only town in the Dingle Peninsula, located on the northernmost section of County Kerry. Tourism is one of the biggest industries in town, and with good reason. Its top attraction is St. Mary’s, a neo-Gothic church. For those with a sweet tooth, a visit to Murphy’s Ice Cream, which offers homemade ice cream made from milk from local cows, is a must. If you want your refreshments a little harder, get a drink from Dingle Distillery. Alternatively, you can drop by one of the pubs in town and listen to traditional Irish music with your beer. Of course, no trip to Dingle would be complete without trying out activities near the water, including swimming, surfing, and spotting the unique rock formations jutting out of the ocean. Once you’re done exploring, lay your head at one of the accommodations listed below. Take your pick from these places if you’re looking for where to stay in Dingle, Ireland.

Hotels

1. Dingle Skellig Hotel and Peninsula Spa (from USD 188)

5. Dingle Peninsula Hotel (from USD 98)

The Dingle Hotel is just four minutes away from the beach and providing guests with fantastic views overlooking the bay.

However, it offers free shuttle services to and from local destinations if you want to go somewhere close by. There’s a nearby pub where you can get a few drinks but complimentary wine is actually offered upon arrival. If that’s not enough, you get a goodie bag from the hotel when you leave.
