The Mighty Session is a good authentic pub in downtown Dingle. Spent one afternoon here and enjoyed the time. Talked to several local men who gave us great information about Dingle and the surrounding area. Nice assortment of beers and cider. They pour a good pint.

Saw some great traditional music during our 2 day stay over the inaugural Dingle folk festival in October 2016. They also have a great selection of beers and whiskey!

Don't rush anything. Head in about a half hour before the music starts and get comfortable. Some nights are better than others. No worries, just go to the next pub. The place can get packed so like I said its good to be there early and just hang out. Its a lot of fun and a really laid back atmosphere.... More

This was a great place for traditional Irish music even on a Sunday night. Our adult children attended with us, and my daughter and husband were able to sit in with the duo/trio performing. The drinks and service were acceptable, but the music and friendliness of the servers and patrons made it an entertaining experience.

We were looking for traditional Irish music, and we couldn't have asked for better! Get there early so you can sit up close and enjoy the music - it's not a large place. Service at the bar is friendly, but the music is the star here. Stellar.

My husband and I stumbled across this pub while walking around Dingle looking for some live music. We were lucky enough to find 2 seats at the bar. We were amazed when we saw 10 + musicians walk in and simply join in playing with the group. It was a fun experience! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for... More

We came here on recommendation, and enjoyed it. Real Irish feel and hospitality, authentic music..and all topped with great food, drinks and staff. Great place to spend a nice evening. It rained while we were in Dingle..so its even better to be in here!
