Meet Fungie the Dingle Dolphin
– In 1983 the local Lighthouse Keeper noticed a lone dolphin accompanying the fishing crews on their way home. After more investigations the dolphin was classed as a permanent resident of Dingle Bay. Since then he has become very popular with divers and local fishermen as well as tourists!
– There are almost 2,000 archaeological sites on the Peninsula, including “Beehive” huts with Ogham writing and Ring Forts. Two very popular sites include the Oratory at Gallarus and the cross stone of Reasc.
