This is a place u must visit along with fungi
You get to touch sting rays as they come to the top of the water they love being touched n they are so cute
The staff often take out the sea creatures like crabs lobsters n star fish
And a gift shop at the end with lots of nice things

“Great Oceanworld!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Dinge Oceanworld was a another highlight of our trip when we visited Dingle. It was magical, the penguins were so cute, we got to touch a starfish, which was incredible and we also got to see the shark tank and that was brilliant too. Later on we had a coffee and cake in the cafe , which was very relaxing. Staff were very enthuastic and welcoming . We had a great day out!!

“Enjoyable visit”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

While on a trip to dingle and with 2 young kids, one a huge lover of penguins, a visit to Dingle Oceanworld was top of the list. We went 1st thing in the morning, it was very quite which suited us as we were able to take our time looking about. The staff were very friendly and allowed us hold a star fish and touch a ray. The highlight has to be the penguins though, my youngest was in awe of them...in fact as your admission ticket allows you return during the day we came back twice to see them. We loved the shark tank too. We had coffee and cake in the onsite cafe while our kids had their faces painted :-) As I said we returned twice that day so all in all found it good value for money.

“Don't wait for rain: see turtles & penguins then sip espresso”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

A giant penguin statue greets Oceanworld Aquarium visitors at this fun stop in the town of Dingle across the road from the Dingle Bay marina and a large parking area.

I love aquariums and my husband loves espresso, so this stop was pleasant for us both. The display and touch tanks were fascinating, especially the giant turtles in the shark tank and the live penguins diving, swimming and preening in their own icy exhibit. After touring, we stopped at the gift shop/cafe area and discovered really good espresso to top off the day. The staff were very friendly and approachable, answering our questions with eagerness.

Like many folks, we waited for bad weather to stop here. After a week of sunshine, we visited on our last - also sunny - day in Dingle. So glad we did. It's not just a rainy day adventure. Don't miss it!

“Wet Day In Dingle”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

This attraction is a great way to spend a few hours if the weather turns nasty as it dose in the South Of Ireland occasionally.The aquarium contains a large selection of all forms of river and sea life and is well documented. The shark tank and the penguin are is a great attraction for kids and the staff are friendly and well informed. Visitors can touch the skate and see the crabs at close quarter,
