I've been to some famous aquariums, London, SeaWorld Florida, La Rochelle in France and this little place stood up well alongside them in terms of value for money. I didn't expect Disney Land in Dingle, however we got a really atmospheric afternoon with some fab animals and amazing staff. What's more, you can buy fresh caught local fish to cook... More

If you visit Dingle, there are two things you should try to do. Take a trip out to see Fungi and visit Dingle Oceanworld. While it is not massive in size there is so much to see and do. It would keep the child, or the child in you, occupied for hours. There is always something new and the staff... More

It was a great experience - firstly, to see all the fishes and other creatures in well designed tanks that not only served their purpose of habitats well, but also more often than not looked like true works of art.

I went here years ago when I was younger and was really impressed with how much it's been improved over the years. Great selection of marine life to see, the otters are really fun and best of all the staff especially Clodagh were really knowledgeable about the animals and could give loads of information beyond what one might normally expect....

We really enjoyed the aquarium, we only wish we had one closer to home. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and made it interesting for the children. We loved the new additions, the otters! We had a ball. Many thanks for all the dolphin facts, I'll be bringing them back to the classroom!
