The town of Dingle, located on Dingle Peninsula, is a quaint place, but sits in the heart of one of the most scenic places in Ireland. It is best reached by car, but Bus Eireann also runs in the town. The nearest train stations are in Tralee or Killarney, and tour buses don't frequent the roads like they do the Ring of Kerry, so you can feel like you're in a remote place (without being isolated).
Within the town itself, there isn't much to do outside of your Dingle hostel (there are some local shops and a grocery, and some pubs) but don't let that limit you. There are lots of outdoor activities and opportunities. Take a bike ride to Slea Head if it's a sunny day, or jump in for a quick swim on the white sandy beaches if it's a warm day. You can kayak or explore the waterfront at the pier (keep an eye out for dolphins). There are some amazing views from the area if you like hiking. Also interesting to check out are the abandoned famine cottages, located on the hills.
Unlike the Ring of Kerry, the roads around Dingle are mostly inaccessible to tour buses (they are too narrow and there are some passes that are too short for buses to squeeze through). If you have a car, Conor Pass is an amazing drive, with breathtaking views. While Dingle might seem like a small town with not much to offer, the magic of the peninsula is sure to captivate anyone.

Dingle is a great little town with nice pubs and music nestled in a craggy, picturesque shoreline along Ireland's blustery coast. The Small Bridge Pub is open year round with live Irish music and is a good choice to visit when considering the numerous drinking establishments. They would not let me tip at this bar so I left a bunch of coins on the bumper pool table, all night long beers were flowing with the friendly locals. Its easy to hitch-hike up and down the roads to get to and from your accommodation. Trekking along the coast and taking the short drive to Slea Head is a "must do." I have been to Europe forty times and can't believe I waited so long to find this little gem in Europe. Give yourself three or four days here.
This is a mad town with great pubs.
Savage craic and savage Guinness -- a gem of a spot with beautiful surrounding areas.
The best bet in Dingle is a private tour by Denis Ryan, a musician/cab driver/tour guide! It costs the same as a big bus tour, and Mr. Ryan will take you to the sights you really want to see. It was the best part of our stay in Dingle (next to our hosts, the Brosnans, at Ocean View). His card is up near the pay phone in the pubs, so try it out - you won't be disappointed!
