“Good place to visit with kids.”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

We visited with my husband and two kids. My 5 year old son loves sharks and they have two large sharks in one of the tanks, that just made his day. It's not the biggest aquarium but it is nice family venue. Once you paid for tickets you can come in as many times as you want during the day. Penguin tank is also nice. They had arts and crafts for kids nice bonus. I got tickets online bit cheaper. Overall nice if you need idea for rainy day with family.

“THE SEA BESIDE THE SEA INSIDE THE SEA”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

It was a wonderful experience in the Dingle Oceanworld. friendly staff, knowledgeable staff, a great shop for gifts and I was able to buy a good English Irish dictionary there. The feeding events were such fun and the penguin Tom Crean experience is excellent.
Good facilities an d a nice reasonable cafe.

“Great for Adults and Kids”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We met a lovely girl who worked in the Aquarium and was so helpful telling us about the rescue turtle Molly and the sharks. While we were there the tanks were being cleaned by divers. They were in with the sharks which was very interesting to see how the sharks dealt with the divers. (they didn't even flinch!) We were shown the baby ray fish that had just hatched and baby sharks. A great way to spend 2 hours.

“Really good.”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Very good oceanworld in the centre of Dingle town. Great for adults and for children alike. I like the way the staff took out the starfish out of the water , thought this was excellent. Very interesting oceanworld ,with lots of creatures to feast your eyes on. Gift shop is cute and has a lot to offer. Had a really good trip here and its perfect to visit when its wet and cold outside.
