WHERE IS DINGLE? Site of the NOAPS Sponsored Workshop by Victoria Brooks

dingle mapCited as ‘the most beautiful place on earth’ by the National Geographic; voted among the top 100 destinations in the world by Trip Advisor; recommended as a very favorable destination for winter by CNN; listed as one of the top 10 places to be on New Year’s Eve – Sounds fantastic, doesn’t it? All of these accolades refer to County Kerry’s stunningly beautiful Dingle Peninsula in Ireland.”
The only town on the Dingle Peninsula holding dramatic views of the Atlantic coast is also named Dingle. Furthermore, it is the site of the NOAPS sponsored workshop given by Signature Artist member Victoria Brooks from August 19 through August 26, 2015
dingle viewThe Dingle Peninsula is a place of intense, shifting beauty. Spectacular mountains, long sandy beaches and the staggering splinter-slatted mass of rocks that defines the extraordinary coast at Slea Head all conspire to ensure that, remote though it is, the Dingle Peninsula is firmly on the tourist trail.
The Dingle Peninsula protrudes 10 miles wide from the southeast of the island of Ireland. It runs 40 miles from Tralee to Slea Head, the point in Europe that is closest to North America. Its highest peak is Mount Brandon, which, at 3,300 feet, is the country’s second tallest mountain.

dingle-townArtists can enjoy painting the extraordinary views, but since one of the principal industries in the town is tourism, there is plenty to do after setting your brushes down. The quaint and colorful streets of the town, the old neo-gothic church of St. Mary’s, the Dingle Mart, the countryside, or fishing are among your choices. And, if that isn’t enough, there are a number of art shops, restaurants, cafes, and pubs where the traditional Irish music will cheer you up.
