Don’t miss attending a concert evening here. The music was lively and lovely! Traditional pipes accompanied by a master guitarist. I am happy that I purchased a CD to remember the beautiful tunes!

This traditional music session was excellent. Lasted 2+ hours, with 3-4 entertainers, singing and dancing. Some audience participants too. The church is beautiful, authentic and as churches go, the acoustics were the best. No need for fancy AV, wires or technicians. Refreshing. The singers tell...More

The Church small size and acoustics make it a perfect venue to enjoy music. Concerts on Wednesday nights during the Summer feature extraordinary talented musicians.

Four Celtic musicians performed traditional music one evening at St. James, using a guitar, a bodhran, a melodeon, a low penny whistle and the uillean pipes (Irish bagpipes), with singing as well. What a wonderful experience of Irish music!

The evening concerts at St. James Church are always a highlight when we visit Dingle. The concert we attended on September 13, 2018 was one of the best ever. If you're a fan of great Irish music don't miss these concerts.

Do do confuse with St. Mary’s. This is an Anglican Church. If you come to the concert, come early and get a front row seat in a comfortable chair. The performance was great. Cost was €13. Lasted about two hours.

The concert was one of the highlights of our time in Ireland. A wonderful way to start (or end) your evening.
