We called in after dinner to sample the local music.

It is quite a small place and can get crowded, especially around the bar. Our group were a bit noisy and received dirty looks from the licensee and some of the customers who were interested in listening to the music.

Can't blame them really - this is a serious music pub.

We had a couple of drinks and left. There are more "open" music pubs in Kinsale!

Not a large place but went before dinner for a drink. Later that night we went to a different pub and wished we had gone back to Dalton's. It was packed and the music was pumping. Staff was great. Struck up a conversation with some locals and had quite a few laughs.

When I thought about Ireland I pictured friendly people in a warm pub with wonderful Irish music. Dalton's was all of that! I loved that the locals were singing and playing instruments - not professionals! A man sitting next to me stood up and sang the most beautiful song that brought us all to tears! What a memory for our family.

We were walking through Kinsale looking for Traditional Irish music and hit the jackpot at Dalton’s Bar. The Bar is a small establishment with a bar and tables and chairs with a corner reserved for musicians. The night we were there two young men and a young woman enthusiastically brought Ireland’s musical heritage to life. We enjoyed every minute.

I had rad that, if you go into an Irish bar the locals will start a conversation with you, but I thought it would never happen but in Dalton’s Bar it did. A man asked if we were on vacation. We talked off and on during the evening about Kinsale and its music scene. He told me that you will know when the locals arrive because you will not be able to hear the music. When that happened we left, confident that we had enjoyed a genuine Irish pub experience shared by locals and tourists alike.

When first visiting Kinsale we wanted to hear traditional Irish music. And more than a few locals told us that Dalton's Bar is the place to go. Whether for a beer, Irish coffee or soda, the evenings have a great buzz in the air at this local pub.

A local gave us the hint to come here. A large group of local musicians played a variety of songs. Locals were invited, and did sing songs, unlike many other trad sessions we went to, where musicians were pros, with amps and mic.s and forgot that the songs were more important than their performance. Kinsale appears to be a popular retirement town, and locals seemed to outnumber tourists, which I like. People of all ages packed the small bar. Try to get seats closer to bar, rather than back door to smoking patio.

Went here on the recommendation of a local taxi driver and we had a great evening. Live music started around 9.30 and there was a great atmosphere. The locals were all very friendly.
