Went by on a recommendation from the Dingle Distillery. They had live music early on a Sunday which was as great because we were the only parents that took their teen to a pub that night. Great music, good beer and a super cool puppy...More

The ceiling at the bar is about 6’ high. Had 2 music sets on Sunday. No food ever. Some of the worst tall stools but there was plenty of other seating.

We were there on a Wednesday evening when Tom O'Sullivan was playing. Crowded, but people made room and we had good conversation as well as hearing great music. Recommended

What a great place to spend an evening! Small bar, but with fantastic music and a good selection of quality whiskeys and spirits, and some great local beers on tap. Absolutely worth a stop if there is music going!

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
