Traditional Irish Music

Seems any night you can count on some great local music here. Grab a pint and let your toes go tapping. A perfect way to end a day on the Dingle Penisula.

My friends and I really enjoyed this pub. A local B&B owner said it was the only pub he liked to go to in Dingle. We were not disappointed. There was a great crowd in there the night we visited. Live music and very reasonable priced drinks.

Excellent stop for music and drinks in Dingle. The place was packed with tourists and locals alike - we shared a table with some friendly folks from Michigan. The Bullmen's cider and Guinness were very good here.

We ended up here both nights we were in Dingle. The bartenders were friendly and the music was good both nights. We were able to sit down, have a drink and listen to the musicians.

We stopped in here after dinner for a pint and music. We met some wonderful locals (Kevin) and travelers. We enjoyed the music and the pints! Quite the popular place once the music gets going, get there early to get a seat.

On our first night in Dingle we were walking around after our dinner looking for a place for some music and a drink. After passing a couple of places that either didn't have music going yet , entranceways full of smokers or just too crowded we stepped into An Droichead Beag. There were musicians setting up and most seats were... More

My husband and I stopped in just before the live music started; the place was relatively full (no seats available except for two bar stools just inside the door). This was the strangest pub experience I have ever had ... no lively conversations or laughing ...only whispers and silence for a good 20 minutes. Honestly, I started wondering if there... More

Many nooks and crannies let you settle in to a night of craic with people from around the world. Often there is music, and it often gets crowded with local young people, who congregate toward the back rooms. I prefer it during the day, when you can sit in the window and watch the people on the street.

Great pub! They are a late bar which was fantastic for us as were we late getting into town. People were friendly. There is a pool table. Rules are different than American pool and the balls were 2 different colors opposed to strips and solids. There is a dance floor upstairs and a smokers area downstairs. Must visit for visitors...

Stopped here for a late night drink and at about 9:00 live music started. Guitar player and woman on accordion - playing traditional Irish music. We listened for about an hour and then departed. Great way to end a fun day in Dingle.
