Wren’s Day in Dingle

There are quite a few sore heads around the town of Dingle today after Lá an Dreoilín - Wren's day. This ancient tradition of music, costume, and merry-making is still alive and well on Stephen's Day in Dingle, and much fun was had by all.

Thanks to my brother for the photos. I was busy playing whistle with the Sráid Eoin wren (John Street)!

  1. Kieran,

    I so much enjoy reading your blog. My wife, her sister and I are going to be coming to stay right outside of Dingle for 9 days February 17th.

    While we have been to Ireland once before, this will be our first time in Dingle and somehow I feel like your blog has done much to help us to feel like we know it a little bit.

    Please tell us that your Ice Cream store will be open while we are there!

    Once again thanks for your blog!

    Ron, Dona and Ann

  2. Glad you like it! It should be a good time to visit, although not everything will be open. We plan to be. The off season can be magical if the weather is decent, since there isn’t the tourist crush. Bring lots of waterproofs and a positive attitude, and you’ll have a blast!
