Face mask
Jul 2021 • Couples
The aquarium is very nice with some lovely creatures and fish to see however my experience was spoiled before it even really started. I entered with my partner, she was wearing a face mask and I was wearing a thick scarf over my mouth and nose. I was stopped, after entering and told I couldn’t go in without a face mask. I pointed out that I had a face covering (scarf) but the lady said “you can still breath through it!) lol I can’t stop breathing. Then she told me to wait while she found a face mask which I put on and went inside. The whole thing was quite embarrassing and unnecessary. Maybe they should change their guidance on the tickets to “face masks only” instead of face coverings which was on my ticket.

Lovely little aquarium
Jul 2021 • Family
Our family of four absolutely loved out day out at Dingle Ocean World. It was a last minute change of plan but more than made up for a bad experience at a previous attraction.

Wonderfully helpful and friendly staff and a large variety of sealife to encounter. Our little ones were enthralled.

A very worthwhile activity
Jul 2021 • Family
A great way to take shelter from the hot day, this aquarium has very interesting and well maintained exhibits! It is well laid out and the ticket booking system prevents over crowding. We spent an hour and 10 minutes going through and a further half hour in the gift shop! Adults and children both enjoyed it a lot. The staff were very helpful and friendly!

What a super aquarium!
Jul 2021
This visit far exceeded my expectations and is by far the best aquarium in Ireland. The variety of sea and other creatures to see was great. My 2 daughters, 5 and 3, loved it especially the shark tank! I would highly recommend a visit to the aquarium and I would definitely go again.

Penguin inclosure conditions
Jun 2021 • Family
I enjoyed the aquarium and the animals that were there however I was disappointed to see the condition of the indoor penguin enclosure as it had no real snow or ice instead a big structure of white plastic it give a snow effect

Highly recommended
Jun 2021
This place was a real unexpected Gem. We hadnt planned to visit but it was raining and we were looking for something indoors.
It's amazing. We all loved it. A highlight was the buterfly room. I've never seen anything like that before.
Definitly don't miss this when you're in Dingle and it's worth the drive from places further afield.

Great day out
Jun 2021 • Family
Great day out in dingle, weather wasn’t great so we decided to go to the aquarium. I’ve been to two
Other aquariums in Ireland and this is by far the best! Took us about an hour to get around you could spend longer reading all the info but we had small
Kids. The shark tank is quite impressive. The butterfly room was quite good too, the staff are helpful and there’s plenty in the gift shop On the way out in varying prices so they can get something but it Doesn’t break the bank! It was quite busy but we were all wearing masks and plenty of hand sanitizer throughout, that’s all they can do id say COVID wise it’s hard to social distance with excited kids running around looking at the exhibits! All in all a god day out and worth the money.

Ocean world dingle... Fish..... And penguins and otters.. And reptiles
Jun 2021 • Couples
Second time to visit this aquarium.. It was small but enjoyable. Bit of a mixed bag as there are lots of reptiles too and others. Penguins were great though. Only took about an hour. My only note would be that as they had time slots for booking, lots of people arrived in together at the alloted time therefore were indoors trying to see all the same things at the same time. Felt a bit nervous having that many people around me on an enclosed space during a pandemic. We let people move on and it was fine but it was our choice to do that. Would have been good if they staggered groups.
