Killarney and Dingle amongst Top 100 places to visit

21 May

I was reading on Ice Cream Ireland that Killarney and Dingle have been included in Tripadvisor’s Traveller’s Choice Destination Awards, and both Kerry towns were ranked in the top 100, based upon reviews and ratings by Tripadvisor’s 15 million members.

Dingle comes in an amazing 18th in the worldwide list of best places to visit, and Killarney comes in 85th, ahead of Rome, Barcelona, and Machu Picchu! Galway is the only other Irish town listed, coming 42nd.

Rabbitte calls for clarification on official name status of Dingle

21 Mar

The Labour leader says he wants to know whether the Dails soon-to-be-established new Irish-language translation service can be used to figure out the status Dingle.
Under the placenames order, Dingle now has to call itself An Daingean.
But the people of the peninsula have already voted to call it Dingle Daingean Ui Chuis.
Pat Rabbitte says confusion reigns over how exactly the town can brand itself to tourists.
