This pub was recommended to us by a few different people, and it did not disappoint! It offers great atmosphere with traditional Irish music. Get there around 30 minutes before the band is scheduled to start to secure a good seat. O'Sullivan's ended up contributing...More

Nice pub with great music. It was a lot of fun to listen to Tommy O'Sullivan and his wife perform a variety of music. Watch your head when you enter if you are tall!

Love this pub! My favorite in Dingle! Low ceiling so if you are above 6 feet you may want to sit the whole time but a great spot with love music.

A great place for traditional Irish music. Low ceilings and it fills up quickly so get there early. We stayed a few hours longer than what we originally planned because we loved the beer, layout, and music.

This pub has the best music, beer selection, and atmosphere in Dingle. Tommy O'Sullivan is excellent, and his guest musicians are always top notch. When most other bars in the area switch over to dance clubs around 10pm, the Courthouse Pub instead chooses to keep...More

We went to the folk concert in town where Tommy played (cost the 3 of us E39), and then to the pub where we had free entertainment from Tommy O'Sullivan, Tom Delaney on the pipes, and David Heaney (think I've got the last name right...More
