Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Very nice selection of whiskey and beer, but mostly this is a whiskey bar, so we enjoyed it to the fullest.

    What a quaint Irish Pub! My wife and I stopped here on the recommendation of others and boy we weren't disappointed. The first part of the bar looks like an old hardware shop it's pretty neat. The staff were friendly and the pint was delicious.

    We started the night off at a different pub that advertised live traditional music but didn’t deliver. So we were thrilled to walk by Courthouse Pub and hear the real thing! We went in and pulled up some stools, and were toe tapping in no time. We especially loved to watch the Irish bagpipe being played. If course, the whiskey is good too! It doesn’t get any more authentic than this.

    We were looking for traditional music and hit the jackpot here. As we walked in, 2 people were just getting up from a table right in front so we grabbed the seats and had the best seats in the house for watching and listening to the musicians. Great and friendly service at the bar for a crowded evening. Wish we'd discovered this pub on our first night in Dingle instead of our last! The only bad memory is that I left a bag with a t-shirt I'd purchased earlier in the day and didn't realize it until late at night. When we drove by leaving town, they weren't open yet so that's a shirt I'll never get to wear.

    We came here around 12 on our Monday night visit. Door staff are professional and sound. Bar staff efficient and know their stuff. Unreal duo on an accordion and acoustic (can I have the band name please?) got everyone dancing for the whole night. A great night of dancing and music

    The Dingle Pub is a very traditional Irish Pub that has a lot of character. My wife and I had a different sandwich special each. The sandwiches were simple, but good. Prices were a little on the high side, as lunch run about 35 € with tip.

    We were in Dingle and looking for some traditional Irish music. We stumbled upon this pub and it was great. Traditional music (including a Bodhran – amazing performance) and Irish dancing! Do arrive early because it was packed by the time we came in. The bar staff were friendly and made you feel welcome, the atmosphere was laid back and the beer and whiskey selection were on point. Would highly recommend!

    Really good menu with lots of choices for us vegetarians! The starter portions were big (be warned!) and the pizza was delicious. Great service too. Would definitely recommend.

    The best part of the experience was Gregorio (I think that is his name!). We got there a few minutes before it opened, and he flashed three fingers through the window to indicate the bar would open in three minutes. As it was raining a bit, we went to stand under a roof overhang a few shops down. True to his timing, he opened the door and waved us in as if we were old friends. I don't know that I have ever felt so welcome at any establishment! And it was especially welcome as we had just been to the famous hardware store bar where we were ignored. So glad we chose to come here instead. As was mentioned in another review, the drinks are excellent, and freshly made. Gregorio went out to get Silver Patron tequila from storage and made the best margarita I have had. Cool in a whiskey and Guiness drinking country.
    I will be back someday soon and drive the Ring of Kerry which Gregorio insisted was a crime that I did not.

    Great spot for a few drinks with friends. A very traditional Dingle pub with a lot of interesting memorabilia around, and a really cosy feel.

    You want a locals pub? Tired of walking into every bar and restaurant in town and seeing/hearing only Americans? Try the barrack heights....heather(?) at the bar and a cast of wacky local characters will give you a taste of what this town would be like without a tour bus load arriving every minute. It's at the far end of the street, and not fancy, not shiny, and possibly not a door you'd peek into otherwise.

    No music, but a great education in Gaelic football--go Kerry! And reasonably priced pints. Wish we had discovered it earlier in our stay, it was a hoot.
