Awesome beers, fantastic entertainment, music, talent and positivity. Hard to get into, so arrive early, eat, drink and get a spot close to the front. All locals are there, after work and/or residents in the area. Seems like the local folk do this every night...More

We loved the courthouse. The live music was amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful with some tips on what to do with in Ireland.

We were referred here after a whiskey tasting at Dingle Distillery. What incredible traditional Irish music in a very down-to-earth pub. The whiskey and Guinness went well with the music of an amazing accordion player, David Healy, and guitarist and vocalist, Gearoid O'Duinnin. Fantastic night.

What a pub! Music was unbelievable. My only criticism would be that I would like more songs rather than musical pieces. But all in all... a great night!

The ceiling at the bar is about 6’ high. Had 2 music sets on Sunday. No food ever. Some of the worst tall stools but there was plenty of other seating.
