All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Call it the Dingle Magic. Because something simple happens when you go into Sinéad and Thomas Ashe’s bar: you just don’t want to leave. You might have only come in for a quick drink, or a quick bite to eat, but you will find that you change your plans very fast, and decide to have another drink, and another plate of something delicious. Sure, the night is young, and how often nowadays do you find yourself in a classic pub like Ashe’s – which dates all the way back to 1849 – a pub with that inimitable, out-of-time ambience and character, a pub that exudes that Dingle Magic.

And if there is character in the pub, there is talent in the cooking, so head here for local specialities like West Kerry lamb shank, or Glenbeingh mussels, or steamed Ventry lobster, or local hake with tarragon butter sauce. The kitchen is confident and knows exactly what it does best, delivering crisp, clean flavours and textures. Three nice simple rooms upstairs offer a fine, town-centre place to lay your head. But, one word of warning: during festival time, Dingle is a town that doesn’t sleep!
