This European town that is just an hour-flight from the UK is said to be one of the most underrated places to visit.

Dingle in County Kerry, Ireland, is home to beautiful scenery and artistic buildings that sit in a town with an incredible 6,000 years of history.

It is arguably one of the island’s more charming towns, home to numerous cosy pubs and buzzing Dingle Bay.

Boat tours to see the famous pod of dolphins run daily, with numerous tourists joining in on the hunt to find the town’s most famous dolphin, Fungie.

Located in western Ireland, the town is also known for its access to beautiful beaches and is on a prime position on the Dingle Peninsula.

The town is home to beautiful landscapes, as well as hikes and coastal walks.

Peak season is from July to August, with restaurants filling up and boat tours needing to be booked well in advance.

Shoulder season, which falls between March and June and September and November, is arguably the best time to visit with flowers in full bloom and queues less likely.

While visiting, there are a few neighbourhoods that should make your top list of places to see.

Dingle Town Centre is the first, arguably being the best place to stay for those looking to be in the middle of the action.

With numerous pubs and bars lining the streets and the harbour nearby, it makes a great spot to visit. Another popular neighbourhood is Cooleen which is located right on the water.

Home to a number of independent B&Bs and holiday guest homes, it could be a more affordable option than staying right in the centre.

The marina is a must visit, with boats coming to and from the dock hourly. Boat trips can be booked in advance or on the day in the off-peak season.
