Gaeltacht Chiarraí – Corca Dhuibhne:


An Fharraige Mhór a dhear agus a dhealbhaigh Corca Dhuibhne anseo ar imeall iarthair na hEorpa. Síneann leithinis iontach Chorca Dhuibhne siar ó bhaile Thrá Lí, príomhbhaile an chontae agus ó shráid Chaisleán na Mainge go dtí Ceann Sléibhe, agus ar a aghaidh sin amach oileánrach an Bhlascaoid. Ar an trá theas tosnaíonn an Ghaeltacht idir Abhainn na Scáil agus Lios Póil. Ar an taobh ó thuaidh tá teora lámh le Bréanainn agus An Clochán na féile agus na fáilte. Is é baile beosach gnóthach An Daingean príomh láthair dhaonra na leithinse. Siar ón nDaingean tá mórán áiteanna nach tearc a gcáil sa stair agus sa litríocht, áiteanna dála Ceann Trá, Dún Chaoin, Baile an Fheirtéaraigh, Feothanach, Baile na nGall agus An Blascaod Mór. Tá sléibhte maorga anseo. Tá tránna móra, breátha, glana, neamhthruaillithe anseo. Níl áit is fearr ná is deise ná an áit seo ar theorainn iarthair na hEorpa do shiúlóirí, galf, snámh agus eachtraíocht fharraige, seoltóireacht, iascach trá agus farraige nó fámaireacht ag breathnú ar áilleacht tíre. Tá rud do gach duine anseo sa Ghaeltacht seo, an chuid den Eoraip is cóngaraí do Mheiriceá.

The Kerry Gaeltacht – Corca Dhuibhne/Dingle Peninsula

Shaped by the surge of the Atlantic Ocean, the Dingle Peninsula is the most westerly point in Europe. The peninsula stretches dramatically westward from the county town of Trá Lí (Tralee) and the village of Caisleán na Mainge (Castlemaine) to the tip of Ceann Sléibhe (Slea Head) and Na Blascaoidí (the Blasket Islands). On its southern shore, the Gaeltacht area begins between the villages of Abhainn an Scáil (Anascaul) and Lios Póil (Lispole), while on the northern shoulder the boundary is close to the welcoming communities of Bréanainn (Brandon) and An Clochán (Cloghane). The vibrant town of An Daingean (Dingle) is the peninsula's main centre of population with storied Gaeltacht place names like Ceann Trá (Ventry), Dún Chaoin (Dunquin), Baile an Fhirtéaraigh (Ballyferriter), An Fheoghanaigh (Feoghanach), Baile na nGall (Ballydavid) and An Bhlascaod Mhór (the Great Blasket Island) awaiting your discovery. Piled high with mountains and fringed with quiet unpolluted beaches, this colourful holiday destination is a haven for walkers, golfers, surfers, sailors, sightseers and deep-sea fishermen. This is a Gaeltacht with something for everyone on Europe's final western frontier.
