It's hard to visit Dingle without a boat trip to see Fungi. Sales staff and boat staff were friendly and helpful. It's a must do while on Dingle.

...this is probably as good as any other of the several boats. If you are hoping for a marine adventure, head elsewhere. The focus is on the famous dolphin (free if a no-show); there is a guide if you have questions, but wasn't a lot of material volunteered. And yes, Fungie does go alongside the many boats (five circled him(?)... More

Read about this in our Ireland travel guide and decided we would give it a go. It was one of the best experiences on our trip here. Fungie made an appearance and we were able to capture great pictures. The surrounding scenery is also gorgeous. Love the quaint fishing town of Dingle. Hope Fungie will be around for awhile longer!

Had a very close up sighting of Fungi the Dolphin. A must do when visiting Dingle, unsure how old Fungi is but from what I read Fungi is quite old now. This was a fantastic experience, how many day's do you get to experience this, exactly!

I had a great time on the boat tour out to meet Fungi the Dingle dolphin. On top of getting see Fungi, I found the views out on the bay to be breathtaking and probably spent more time snapping photos of the surrounding landscapes. Fungi was great fun for the kids that were on board. I couldn't help but to... More
