We were looking for a place to enjoy some Irish music. This one had the best sounds on the street wafting out. This is a very low key pub. We ordered some whiskeys and enjoyed the music. Everyplace in Dingle is kinda touristy but this...More

What a great meal at John Benny’s. Had one of the specials along with a glass of Guinness. World Cup game was on so it was extra special. Great food. Service was great.

I expected better seafood from a seaside restaurant. The service was a bit wanting as well. You shouldn't have to ask for water or napkins.

We were on a trip through Dingle with a group of 10 and they were very accomodating. The food was good standard pub fare and everyone enjoyed it. The Sea Bass was quite good as were the mussels - the Pie also but be hungry!

We were delighted to see Niamh Varian-Barry and her friends perform at John Benny’s in Dingle last night. Niamh, former member of the international Celtic band “Solas”, is a sensational fiddle player. If you are in Ireland, drop everything to try and see her perform.
