Dining Out on the Dingle Peninsula

The specialities of the region are what attract the modern traveller, and none more so than the food and the cooking of the region.

This is why regional tourism is the tourism of the future, because it allows the visitor to truly understand and appreciate the complexity and inimitable character of a region.

The cooking of the region, and the chance to meet the people who prepare the food, allows the visitor to confront the culture intimately, in the most delicious way possible.
