    Dingle Local Customs

    Dingle is in the Gaeltacht area of Ireland, which means it is an Irish speaking area (Don't worry, they speak English aswell). Simple words like Conás ata Tú (Pronnounced con-as-a-ta-tu) which means How are you or Tá mé go maith (ta-may-gu-mo) which means im fine or im good. if you want to say Dingle don't call it An Danigean because the locals...

    Tralee is home to Siamsa Tíre, Ireland's National Folk Theatre. If you would like to sample Gaelic culture, however, the folk theatre Siamsa Tíre (pronounced, roughly, 'Sheemsa Teera') puts on a range of excellent shows featuring traditional Irish myths, songs, dance and stories. The language of the performances is Irish, but you do not need to be...
