Dingle Bay is definitely one of the scenic highlights of any visit to Ireland. Located in the southwest of the country Dingle and its surrounding countryside is steeped in both history and natural beauty. Onboard the rib boat ‘Peig Sayers’ - named after one of the country’s best-known writers and chroniclers of life in rural Ireland - you’ll get the exhilarating experience of seeing Dingle and its islands from a totally new perspective. From the deck, or inside the comfortable cabin, of this 12 seater Stormforce 11 vessel you will leave Dingle Harbour and venture out to sea and the Great Blasket Island.
With safety and comfort as a priority, you’ll be whisked out to the rugged Island archipelago where you’ll have the opportunity to see a wide variety of terrestrial marine life, from puffins nesting on the cliff edges to whales, dolphins, porpoises, and seals, along with the natural geographic beauty of the area. You will then land on the Great Blasket Island where you can spend your leisure time exploring what was once a thriving fishing community, but now lies abandoned and in the care of the OPW (Office of Public Works). The scenery really is stunning, and beaches and coves pristine. On the return journey to Dingle, the tour will make a brief stop to visit Fungie - the Bay’s resident dolphin. All in all the tour gives you approximately 6 hours of some of Ireland’s greatest highlights.
