Over the years we have welcomed many guests to our house. We have learned from our clients, the type of things they like to do whilst visiting the Dingle. There are an abundance of things to do here on the Wild Atlantic Way, and we have created a series of blog posts entitled 30 things to do in Dingle, to help you decide what suits you whilst on holiday.
In this post we suggest seeing birds of prey up close; visiting an authentic brew-house; hearing some traditional Irish music; nibbling on some wonderful cheese and seeing native Irish aquatic life up front.
Some activities will suit everybody, while other may just fine one or two gems to partake in while here.
But no matter what – there is always something to do in Dingle!

Discover Birds of Prey
Popular with all age groups, a visit to the Dingle Falconry Experience always is a fascinating experience. Eric, the master falconer, will introduce you to his beautiful birds of prey including falcons, hawks and owls. This is available daily in the grounds of Milltown House. Private falconry walks are also available.

Take a tour of Dick Mack’s Brew-house.
Dick Mack’s has been serving up liquid refreshments since 1899. As a dual-function pub you will find beer and a fine selection of whiskeys on one half of the bar, and a leather shop on the other. Explore the bar and adjoining rooms where the Mac Donnell family lived until recent times, or just get tucked into one of the snugs in the bar and absorb the atmosphere of this unchanged Irish pub. Dick Mack’s yard is a real Dingle institution.
