Dingle Town & Community
It goes without saying that Dingle, while the most westerly town in Europe, is well connected with an excellent infrastructure from broadband, remote working spaces, a skilled pool of professionals to a younger, well educated population. Dingle's connected, entrepreneurial community are leading out with innovative environmental, social and economic sustainability projects benefitting tourism, agriculture and the local community.
The existing enterprise infrastructure around Dingle town and community appeals to individuals and companies searching for that perfect work/life balance or indeed second site with the backdrop of a vibrant social and economic area. The Dingle Hub is a space to meet and work, with access to high-speed broadband and professional audio and video technology facilities. The hub also provides services to start-ups and budding entrepreneurs, with facilities, workshops and networking advice. It is a hive of active networks, with many of its connected members and users part of leading sustainability initiatives including the Dingle 2023 project.
Famous worldwide for its distinct Irish culture, music, heritage and landscape, Dingle town and its surrounding community is located at the heart of the scenic Gaeltacht area of the Dingle Peninsula / Corca Dhuibhne, which juts 30 miles (48 kilometres) out into the Atlantic Ocean. Dingle is 40 minutes' drive from Kerry Airport (and connecting national network rail stations) or two hours' drive from either Cork or Shannon Airports. It is well served by national and local bus links, and as it is a narrow peninsula, easy to navigate while living locally with regular local transport.
The remarkable natural beauty of Dingle is naturally sustained by its community who are engaged in working on green initiatives to improve the quality of life for its locals and visitors, as well as giving the environment an opportunity to regenerate.
The Wild Atlantic Way coastline along the Dingle Peninsula leads to opportunities for exploration, conservation and adventure. Conservation projects are clustered within the dynamic Maharees Archipelago, and companies and communities are welcome to engage in meaningful projects designed to preserve the natural habitat for nature and wildlife to regenerate. At one of its most westerly points, the history of the Blasket Islands and stories of those who lived and emigrated from these famous isles is sensitively explored at Ionad an Bhlascaoid / The Blasket Centre. This dynamic community keeps its traditional culture and language alive throughout the year with superb festivals including Wren Day on 26th December (Lá na Dreoilín) and Féile na Bealtaine (the Celtic festival of Fire marking the beginning of Summer) each May. Contemporary music fans flock to Dingle for the Other Voices festival each December.
