So much to take in but so very interesting. Love the information on the train that once took people and animals to other towns!

This little museum is packed with finds and artefacts dating from the Mesolithic period to present day. It really offers a good overview of life on the Peninsula. Be aware that... More

An hour here will give you an excellent overview of life in Dingle -- from stone age thru WWII. Be sure to go to Murphy's pub for the Irish Stew afterwards.
