My travelling companion wanted to stop here due to the Irish pub documentary. We stayed for a few pints of Guinness. It was midday on a Tuesday and fairly empty but we liked the look of it and the gentleman behind the bar was funny.

First time to Curran’s in Dingle and was really impressed with the cold, fresh pint of Guinness we had. Friendly staff and authentic surroundings. Highly recommended

Curran’s is a piece of history that should not be missed. The locals were friendly and the beer was good. I’m glad places like Curran’s still exist.

Friendly place but packed with standing room only. Interesting place though and a recommended stop in Dingle.
