Fun night of Irish music. When we arrived not too crowded and was able to get a table in the corner. As the night progressed it got increasingly crowded, standing room only, so our seats weren't going to work so we ended up standing to see. That was fine. We came to realize throughout Ireland the music starts when the music starts, LOL! So if they say 9:30pm be prepared give it an extra 1/2 hour or more before it begins. Not a big deal, just take in the whole experience. Tommy O'Sullivan performed with another musician. They were excellent, enjoyed hearing traditional Irish music, that is what we were there for.

Excellent music. Good craic. We had seen the owner perform at the St. James Church concert series and came over afterward. If you want to see traditional Irish music and incredible musicians, this is the place to go. It is cash only so make sure to bring some with you.

If you love music with a passion don’t pass by this pub. We had been following the music here on Facebook, so we knew we were in for a treat and we weren’t disappointed, the musicians were so talented and really enjoying themselves which made a brilliant atmosphere. Helpful bar staff lovely Guinness and a roaring fire, you can’t ask for more.

Tommy O Sullivan runs a very fun pub, with great music! We visited in October 2021 and that pub was the best pub in our entire 10 days in Ireland. Ask Tommy and Saundra to play the Galway Shawl, with a young man on the squeeze Box named Connor, it is riveting! If not for another reservation in Killarney, we would have stayed longer in Dingle. Walked into Dingle Pub and were treated quite poorly , but not at Tommy's !

Tommy and Saundra have put together a highly unique and magical tour which explores the heart of Ireland's past. They have garnered talented experts to better teach the historical and mystical... from medieval walking tours to ancient monastic ruins, all while enjoying the best Craic one can imagine. The scenery, as well as the fine selection of lodging will leave you in awe. Now add in the musical and whimsical aspects... truly an unforgettable memory.

If you are considering visiting Ireland via a tour, this is your right move.

Horrible place, arrived here with my partner and a couple of friends after being told it was a good spot for Irish music. How wrong this was. The place was overcrowded and very small. It took 40 minutes to get drink from a disinterested barman (tall curly hair). Their was a brash American behind the counter too. Bad vibe about the place. Toilets filthy too, stay clear of the place, lots of other nice bars in this small town.

Irish pubs don't get any better than O'Sullivan's Court House Pub in Dingle, County Kerry. I've visited pubs from Donegal to Kinsale and everywhere in between and Tommy & Saundra O'Sullivan have created the perfect atmosphere for listening to traditional Irish music played by top-notch artists. Great music every night, great craic, great bartenders (many of them musicians!), a warming fire on colder nights, hot coffee brewing all the time, and, every now and then, an Irish/Texas barbeque! The restrooms are even clean!

A group of us visited this pub last weekend, after the marathon, and there was a session on, so we were looking forward to enjoying it, but unfortunately my husband is 6'5 and the ceiling was too low, so we had to leave :-(
Just a word of warning for other tall people out there.
