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.
