Marie Antoinette and Dingle

This unassuming Georgian house in Dingle was refurbished inside in the French style in preparation for an important guest-Marie Antoinette. It was one of several plans to free the royal family and a Kerryman had a ship waiting to take her to Dingle. Everything was planed and the jailers had been bribed, but she she refused to leave her family. For more see page 107 of Fadó-Tales of Lesser Known Irish History.
