The Dingle Peninsula is a rural area in County Kerry, situated on the edge of the harsh Atlantic Ocean, with a strong Irish language culture. It’s an island within an island. Despite this, the town boasts a foreign population of nearly 30% – the locals refer to these individuals as “blow-ins”. What brought these people here? And what caused them to stay?
“A charming testament to the magnetic & mythical draw of the West.” — WF

With a wide variety of characters, we gain insight into the unique magic of the area and what it means to live there. We witness the highs and lows of integrating with a rural Irish community, and ask the question of what it takes to truly be considered a “local”.
