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.

While I understand not every night can have entertainment as great as nights we attended pub, this place certainly did not disappoint. Get there early unless you wish to stand. Go once and you will return again.

Understand this venue has music every night. It is an interesting venue with the bar towards the front in an area of low beams which even moderately tall people need to be wary of. We were there on a Sunday when the music started at...More

Just below Main St., on The Mall, you'll find this quaint little pub specializing in the best of traditional Irish music in Dingle. A work of caution to tall people. Watch the beam above the bar. I spent 4 nights in Dingle this October and...More
