Dingle Record Shop is located opposite Saint Mary's Church, Green Street, in Dingle Town Centre. Here, you will find what is probably one of the smallest Music shops in the world, inviting you to step in and have a look around. Music is in abundance, and stomers. Traditional Irish takes centre stage with special promotion given to local musicians, as many of their cds do not have general distribution. I am proud to be an outlet for them.
Dingle Record Shop offers a varied selection of Traditional Irish Music with Special Emphasis on local musicians who live around the Dingle Peninsula. I also sell and stock rare, hard-to-find cds of Traditional Artists, as well as Modern Popular Music and Contemporary Music to accommodate a wider cross-section of customers.
All year long Dingle hosts a number of different events. These events draw thousands a year into this small village. These events include marathons, film festivals and a very popular food festival.
Food Festival. Founded in 2007, the Festival showcases the quality of the food that is locally produced and the warm welcome offered to those who choose to visit our beautiful Corca Dhuibhne.
The town voted Ireland's Best Foodie Town, is renowned for its restaurants, most of which offer excellent local seafood. Once cited as ‘The most beautiful place on earth' by the National Geographic, Dingle was voted among the top 100 destinations in the world by Trip Advisor.
Places to Eat
Located opposite the pier in Dingle Town, John Benny Moriarty's is a superb place to eat and be entertained. Your hosts, John & Éilís, are well known traditional Irish musicians, and their pub is one of the Peninsula's finest venues for music, song and dance. John Benny's serves food all day with a great selection of seafood and other dishes.
When it comes to traditional Irish music, language and culture, there are few pubs that compare with Tigh Tábhairne Ui Fhlaithbheartaigh, O’Flaherty’s Pub, on Bridge Street, Dingle. Under the stewardship of publican Fergus Ó Flaithbheartaigh, O’Flaherty’s is a trad mecca where the strains of the session continuously colour the night air. Music sessions in the pub are plentiful and visiting musicians are welcome.
