Get up close and personal with magnificent marine life at Dingle Oceanworld Aquarium, at The Wood, Dingle, County Kerry. Submerge yourself in this fascinating underwater world and see sharks, exotic fish, cute penguins and adorable otters.

Discover an incredible array of sea life at Dingle Oceanworld Aquarium. Come face to face with sand tiger sharks as these 3m long, 150kg giants swim by in giant shark tanks. Head over to the smaller tanks to see colourful seahorses, deadly pufferfish, snappy piranhas, otherworldly jellyfish and everyone's favourite, clownfish.

Watch as cheeky otters play by the water's edge, and visit the penguins in an enclosure that's designed to mimic the climate of their original home, the Antarctic. See the Butterfly Oasis where a kaleidoscope of colourful butterflies flutter overhead and rest on bright flowers.

The immersive digital experience, Into the Deep, is a six minute animation following the journey of a humpback whale from the shores of Dingle into the deep abyss, just off the coast of Kerry. There is also an interactive touch screen display to bring the magic of the ocean realm to your fingertips.

Experience the magic of Dingle Oceanworld Aquarium, it's perfect for visitors of all ages. Catch one of the exciting daily shows or take in an exhibition, enjoy fun for all the family.
