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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our music concert at the St. James Church. The musicians were amazing and very traditional music was performed. We especially loved Muireann but all were wonderful. The acoustics were perfect and the crowd all enjoyed it. Great music!

My mother and I went to a concert at St. James and they raised the rafters with their joyous, foot-stomping tunes. Please treat yourselves, if you love Irish music, this is a great place to take it in.

I thought the church was nice (built of slate) but what i loved was the meditation labyrinth behind it, together with the walled "Family Garden" and the beautiful graveyard under the old copper tree.
