If you are a tourist, steer clear. The Courthouse pub or The Mighty Session are close by and cater for everyone in a civil manner. The Droichead is a facade, run by uncaring staff who are slaves to the clock. Tourists are fawned upon in the evenings, ignored as the hours pass and hen/stag parties descend.

We were just wandering around Dingle and the music drew us in. The best we heard while we were in Ireland! Great people. Welcoming and very friendly. One of my favorite memories of our trip and a place I plan on returning to!

We met Catherine Graham working at the pub 2 years ago and she was so kind to tell us about many things going on in Dingle to see and do. We ended up spending 2 weeks in Dingle in 2013 and this year August 2014 we spent 3 weeks. Lovely area, friendly people and so much fun every night at... More

My 20 year old daughter and I traveled around Ireland for 2 weeks in May 2014 and had the joy of staying in Dingle and hanging out in the An Droichead Beag for an evening. The Bartenders were so friendly, the later it got the noisier and more crowded it got (that is a good thing in a pub) the... More

Great pub, good beer and friendly staff in the front and overly noisy youth club in the back. Only one bloodied face the night I was there. By day I'd highly recommend, by night give it a miss

Great pub on the "Mall" in the center of town. It is an authentic old pub that is lots of fun. The traditional music sessions draw great local and national musicians. The crowd is warm and friendly. The service and drinks are great.

Popped in for a quick beer, sat at the bar and had two nice chats with the bartender and Kevin. Kevin was a local and probably a fixture at the pub as everyone new him. Just a lovely fellow who wanted to know where we were from and explained his home to us as he's native to Dingle. It really... More
