Whilst not much to look at from the street, the aquarium is big inside with lots of things going on. We got to see the Sharks being fed around noon and the otters being fed at 13:00. They have the feeding times listed as you enter and I recommend trying to see these as the staff also give you a... More

Excellent place to visit a great place for young or old. We were transfixed with the sharks, and the other fish were equally amazing. You could spend as long as you wanted there, and there were plenty of staff around to answer questions. Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.

We spent a couple of hours here, saw the otters and penguins being fed. Watched a presentation of live reptiles and could have handled a python had we been brave enough! There is a touch pool where you can handle starfish and stroke rays. Helpful enthusiastic staff. Lots of tanks and some quite big creatures, sharks etc. We saw that... More

I've been to some famous aquariums, London, SeaWorld Florida, La Rochelle in France and this little place stood up well alongside them in terms of value for money. I didn't expect Disney Land in Dingle, however we got a really atmospheric afternoon with some fab animals and amazing staff. What's more, you can buy fresh caught local fish to cook... More

If you visit Dingle, there are two things you should try to do. Take a trip out to see Fungi and visit Dingle Oceanworld. While it is not massive in size there is so much to see and do. It would keep the child, or the child in you, occupied for hours. There is always something new and the staff... More
