We originally planned to go to John Benny’s which was recommended by both LP and RS guidebooks for live music. Turned out however, not every evening. So ended up at the Dingle Bay Hotel - Paudie's Bar next door. Ordered vegetable soup, crab cakes and a hamburger just before they closed the kitchen (about 9 pm). The crab cakes turned out to be rather mushy (just like the fish cakes at the Wicklow Heather a few days ago – now definitely realized that any kind of seafood cakes here would not be the chunky, large lump kind I was used to in the US). For dessert had raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake, the cake part was soft like mousse, again not the NY cheesecake texture I expected. Overall found the food to be disappointing. However the live music - a 4 person band that evening– Folk and Ballads with Richie O’Brien was very good. A good way to end a a most enjoyable day of sightseeing.

We just had desserts here after our horrible experience in Fentons (see my last review) and were sorry we didn't have the whole meal here. The staff were so warm and welcoming and the desserts and coffees we had were great. I had a homemade banoffi pie which was the nicest I've ever had. We will be back!

A trip to Dingle is not complete without a visit to Paudie's bar! The walls are adorned with pictures of Paudie and every film star, rock star and of course sports star that has ever come to Dingle. Although Paudie has had visits from the rich and powerful from all over the world, he still has a smile and a welcome to every customer that walks through the door. We had lunch in Paudie's and I would go back to Dingle just for another bowel of that wonderful mushroom soup!

A large group of us anglers ate here on the last night of our stay in Dingle, and very enjoyable it was too. The management, (Kathleen), offered us a meal and a pint for 13 euro each, very good value for Dingle!!! The food was really good, service was excellant, and was certainly value for money. The entertainment after our meal and presentation was very good, will be back for more next year.

The musicians - one played guitar and bandgo, the second one - violin were fan-tas-tic! We loved every piece, and of cause, the place is great and real Irish Guiness - what else do you need to spend Saturday night?
