We visited on a Monday night after hearing the landlord Tommy O’Sullivan play at a folk concert. Brilliant to hear young trad musicians playing Irish music without the tv on in the background or other music. Just fab. Will defy recommend to anyone visiting Dingle...More

While the pub is highly authentic and draws a large crowd of local music lovers , we felt entirely welcome . The duo was great , hospitality warm and the beer cold

We were told this would be a great place to hear some traditional Irish music. We did indeed get that, from the owners no less! We really enjoyed our visit. They also have a pub dog, who is more than happy to make the rounds...More

Low stools, small but very traditional pub with live music 7 nights a week. Everyone is friendly but be prepared to be packed in tight. Your sightlines to the musicians will be blocked.

While I understand not every night can have entertainment as great as nights we attended pub, this place certainly did not disappoint. Get there early unless you wish to stand. Go once and you will return again.

Spent 5 nights in Dingle whilst travelling solo. After it was recommended by a restaurant found myself at O'Sullivan's. It's got a great atmosphere, intimate enough but still spacious. Some great local beers that I couldn't seem to find anywhere else. The Staff are friendly...More
