Dingle Bay is the most famous stretch of water on the west coast of Ireland. Visitors from near and far are compelled to stop, look and marvel at it. Out comes the camera phone, and with the bay over the shoulder, another ‘Dingle Bay selfie’ is taken. First made famous in the 1970 film Ryan’s Daughter and filmed in Super Panavision, the local landscape was used to the full by director David Lean. Fans of the film today still seek out the various locations that were used, and so the film is said to have put the town of Dingle on the tourist map. This huge vista, with its ever-changing light and drama, is a must see here in Kerry.
A tip whilst looking at the bay is to keep an eye out for another local celebrity…the famous Kerry mountain goat; you might even see King Puck himself!
