Address: Garvey's Farmhouse, Kilvicadownig, Ventry, Dingle, County Kerry, Ireland
Activities/Attractions: Dingle is a wonderful little town sheltered by mountains with only three main streets - Green Street, Main Street and John Street. Since the filming of Ryan's Daughter on the Dingle Peninsula in 1969 tourism is now one of its major industries. As with every Irish town, it is crowded with pubs, varying from large modern ones to a hole in the wall type. All over Dingle you'll find craft shops (woven tweeds and woollen clothing, sweaters, leather goods, (Celtic) jewellery, turned wood) and there are several art galleries.
There is no other landscape in western Europe with the density and variety of archaeological monuments as the Dingle Peninsula. This mountainous finger of land which juts into the Atlantic Ocean has supported various tribes and populations for almost 6,000 years. Because of the peninsula's remote location, and lack of specialised agriculture, there is a remarkable preservation of over 2,000 monuments.
Garvey's Farmhouse is an ideal location for walking, Dingle Way Walk, hill climbing, cycling, visiting the many archaeological sites and the locations of famous movies such as "Far and Away" and "Ryan's Daughter". Visiting Fungi, the famous dolphin, that has made Dingle harbour it's home since 1983.
Many other activities are available in the area for example spending a day exploring on the Great Blasket Island. For the rainy day a visit to the many cultural and Celtic museums and Ocean World will easily pass the day. Garvey's Farmhouse is recommended by Le Guide du Routard.
"Beautiful area, wonderful host. Very helpful on activities, places to eat."
