Strolling through Dingle looking for a pub that fit our style we went in, and then out, of many of the “recommended” hot spots. This included the hip Dick Mack’s and Foxy Johns both cool with the younger folks but not our vibe. The more...More

We visited on a Monday night after hearing the landlord Tommy O’Sullivan play at a folk concert. Brilliant to hear young trad musicians playing Irish music without the tv on in the background or other music. Just fab. Will defy recommend to anyone visiting Dingle...More

While the pub is highly authentic and draws a large crowd of local music lovers , we felt entirely welcome . The duo was great , hospitality warm and the beer cold

Low stools, small but very traditional pub with live music 7 nights a week. Everyone is friendly but be prepared to be packed in tight. Your sightlines to the musicians will be blocked.

There’s a huge array of pubs to choose from in Dingle but this is the one for us for music. We stayed in Dingle for 3 nights and came here for all 3 evenings! Great atmosphere, a fantastic pint and traditional music that we loved!...More
