Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have been to the largest aquarium in Europe and it does not even come close to how spectacular Dingle Oceanworld is.
Staff are friendly all of the animals have room and seem very content in their environment. The layout is perfect and is very fairly priced. Otters, sharks, jellyfish, penguins, tropical fish, and much more not to mention a beautiful interactive butterfly room. Magnificent. Much much better than the aquarium in Genova. Sorry to them. If you are in Dingle it is a must see no matter what time of the year !

Great to do on a blustery day! It's a great family friendly little aquarium. I loved the otters the most. It was a nice break from the usual pub walks and shopping. Fun!

This was fun for the kids and was a good aquarium. We may have been jaded by some of the huge, over the top aquariums in America, but it was a fun few hours.

Excellent aquarium. Staff were friendly, approachable and extremely knowledgeable. Loved the jellyfish and the shark tank. Everything was clean and well looked after. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is that on our visit we felt there were far too many people in the aquarium - there were points (the butterfly part, touch tank area, shark tank and also where the otters were) where you couldn’t move for people - I understand people congregate at places but there wasn’t a single place where we felt there was a reasonable amount of people.

When you're in the neighborhood of Dingle this is a fun 1-2 hour to spend. You get to see many different kinds of aquatic creatures as well as butterflies. The kids will love it! There is also a lot of information bring shared on what animals they are and how to protect them.

I visited the aquarium with kids from 8-13yrs and they all really enjoyed it! The teens tried out the hurricane stimulator to begin with and it was great fun. There are fantastic animals here with super habitats and viewing areas. The penguins were a big hit, along with the shark turtles otters and the giant butterflies. Highly recommend for a fun family day out. Plenty parking at marina across the road for campers too.

Nice place to visit with kids or on rainy day. Good mix of fish: sharks, jelly fish, penguins, turtles and many others. The lovely guy was speaking about the fishes. Kids loved it.
