Dingle shortlisted in top five Best Coastal Towns in Ireland; online vote to decide winner

Dingle has been shortlisted by the Ray d'Arcy Show as the Best Coastal Town in Ireland along with four other well known destinations. Dingle joins Kinsale, Dunmore East, Doolin and Achill on the final list and visitors to the Today FM website can vote for their favourite coastal town. Of course, here at DingleNews.com we are biased and hope that people will take the time to cast their vote in favour of Dingle online before the deadline, as voting closes this week. The winning town will see the Ray d'Arcy and Today FM team visit the winning town. The shortlist was created using suggestions made by listeners. The competition is also supported by Fáilte Ireland. So if you want to see Dingle voted as Ireland's Best Coastal Town, cast your vote now here. Pictured: Fishing boats docked at Dingle Pier, photographed by Steven Ghesquiere of dodingle.com.
