Cited by National Geographic as the most beautiful place on earth, the Dingle Peninsula is located on the south west coast of Ireland. Although Fishing and farming have long been the major industries, Tourism has become increasingly important and a vibrant music scene has grown up within the town, indeed dingle has become something of a musical "mecca" for musicians from all over the globe.
It was here in 1997 that Mike O' Hare found the place that he wanted to be."having toured around Ireland for nearly 20 years with various bands, I was amazed that somehow I had bypassed this magical place". Within 2 years Mike had opened the Music House record store and moved his promotional business down to dingle. Still here in 2010, Mike has opened "The Craic House" on Strand street in the centre of Dingles tourist thoroughfare."I look forward every day to talking to new people and returning customers, advising them on their purchases and on everything from what to see and where to eat".
Dingle is a truly wonderful place and has a breathtakingly magical quality that just seems (like funghi the dolphin) to reside here and never wants to leave.
