    Crowley's Bar, Kenmare: A traditional pub

    by donpaul77 Updated Jul 15, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were in the Coachman's Bar, chatting with the barman and his friend, and they were impressed that we had just been in Crowleys, because they "wouldn't go in there without a six shooter".

    It certainly wasn't as bad as all that, in fact it was quite nice. We had wanted a quiet pub to have a pint and Crowley's fit the bill pretty well. It was small and cozy and obviously not used to seeing tourists. It almost felt like that scene in a western were a stranger walks in to the saloon and everybody stops talking. It was such a nice pub, and we didn't let it bother us, though I could hear the locals talking about "Americae". The barman was nice and the pints were good. If you are looking for a traditional pub without the tourists, this is your place. The guys at The Coachman's said that Crowley's have music once in a while, though it's typically unplanned.

    The Coachman: A pretty pub

    by donpaul77 Written Jun 26, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Coachman was a pretty pub. As suggested by the name, it's theme was horse and carriage and it's decor reflected that. It was clean and pleasantly lit and maybe even classy, as far as pubs go. It is a nice place for drink.

    O'Donnabhain's Pub in Kenmare: Nice, but a bit touristy

    by donpaul77 Written Jun 25, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We dropped in here in search of music and a pint. We did find music, but it wasn't the traditional Irish music we were hoping for. The place may be a nice a pub, but it was hard to tell as it was packed with tourists who must have been drawn there by the band. I would like to know what it would be like on a less crowded night.

    The building is also a B&B, but I did not stay there.

    An Droicead Beag: Our pub night with a trad session

    by danmcf Written Apr 23, 2007

    An Droicead Beag, in English means 'the small bridge'.
    Not sure if this was the best pub in Dingle, but it fit the bill for us.
    We stopped in just after dinner and beat the crowd. By the time the musicians started up the place was fairly crowded. Mostly tourists, but a few locals scattered about too.

    Dress Code: Didn't notice any dress code.

    John Benny's Pub...Music and craic..Eoin Duignan: Pub Hopping in Dingle, Co. Kerry

    by ladyanne Updated Jan 3, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dingle Town, on the Dingle Peninsula in Co. Kerry is a unique experience, there is so much traditional Irish music and nightlife in one small area, walking distance to them all.
    We started early evening at Dick Mack's and then to Droichead Beag (the Small Bridge), on to Murphy's Pub by the waterfront, and finally at MacCarthy's for last call. Come 12:00 pm and "out you go" no matter what. Lights out ...door closed and locked.

    Dingle is a "hot bed" for the revival of the Gealic customs and history, language and music is a serious subject. There are a special group of musicians who hang out all over Dingle Town,....it is a treat to catch them in a Pub, especially well know uillean pipe player, Eoin Duignan. You will run into him.

    You must buy one of his CD's in the Dingle Record Shop. Below is his website.

    Dress Code: Casual as usaul.

    Dingl: Dingle-town , where Teddies say goodnight

    by globetrott Updated Aug 22, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Dingle-town you will find several pubs with live Irish music each night, at least during the tourist-season, because the town is one of the standard places, where all the tour-buses around Ireland will stop.
    On my picture : a lovely guesthouse on the Atlantic drive in Dingl Peninsula, all of their facade is covered by great frescos ith plenty of bears...From Dingl take the Slea Head Drive - after about 10 Km you will be there ( directely on the street )

    Dress Code: casual, like at most other places in Ireland

    The Phoenix Cinema in Dingle

    by Krumel Written Jun 28, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you happen to stay in Dingle on a Tuesday night you should not miss going to the Phoenix Cinema. It is a very small, cosy cinema, and by pure chance I happened to go to the Phoenix on a Tuesday night to find out that this was "Art Film Night". This involved a desk in front of the screen where someone was brewing coffee and unpacking biscuits. When everybody had helped themselves a microphone was brought out, and a very elegant looking elderly man with a long coat came out to formally introduce the film that was going to be shown that night. Great stuff.

    When I went back to Dingle in June 2003 I was sorry to hear that the elegant gentleman had health problems, and while the coffee and biscuits were still going strong, someone else quickly said a few lines about the film, but it was not the same as seeing him in his elegant coat and his obvious passion for cinema.

    Foxy John's
    This is sooooooo lovely. The left side of the shop is a pub and the right side of the pub is a hardware shop! I loved this place. What I hated though was tourists who come in with their camera, film or take pictures, and go out again. Please don't do this. It's a pub - not a museum!!
