Had a fun evening listening to some great Trad music here. No food, but brought in a fantastic pizza from around the corner. Saw Seamus Bagley here. His ballads were good, but as he got drunker and more lecherous I had to leave. The service...More

I prefer O'Flaherty's but O'Sullivan's is without question a great place to go for good drinks and great music. It is a cozy low-ceilinged intimate spot.

We stopped in after dinner to enjoy a drink and some Irish music, and we weren't disappointed. The pub is small and gets crowded, but this was the best live music we heard during our week in Ireland.

Great atmosphere and character in the place. Traditional music both nights we were there. Roof is below head height as u walk in gives the place a real old style feel

We tripped on this pub mid-week in March. How lucky we were. Music was fantastic and the atmosphere was to like and enjoy. I can imagine in season this place is mobbed. Friendly and worth a visit on a night in Dingle.

How did it end up working out? I have the same question regarding my own kids, 9 and 14. We'll be there in March and would love to stop in during early evening hours. We know we have to be out by 9 pm, but before then?
