Dingle Twon on the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry is a "hot" bed for the revival of Traditional Irish Music. If you are planning a trip to Ireland you must focus on the Sourthwest and West of Ireland and be sure to fly into Shannon which is so much closer.
Dingle has many great Pubs that play Traditional Irish music all year long. You can start at Dick Mack's, Green St. and go on to Droichead Beag (Little Bridge) lower Main St., Flaherty's Pub gets full fast, and then settle for awhile at John Moriarty's Pub by the waterfront on Strand St., take last call at MacCarthy's Pub on Goat St. or Upper Main St.
One of the best ullean pipe's player in Ireland is located in Dingle, Eoin Duigan, a real treat to catch him and the other locals making the rounds at the Pubs along with you. I heard him play in 1996 and again in 2005. Still doesn't miss a note of his magical pipes and whistles.
Dress Code: Casual.
the band starts about 6 pm every sunday. they play everything from rock ,jazz to blues. it is very loud, but you can dance away . its just something different in a town where you hear traditional music everywhere.
Dress Code: whatever you fancy
There is usually a traditional Irish band playing from 9-11pm and then another live band start up near the back of the pub til about 1am. The night we went there was a really good rock band, Bluemoose, (http://www.bluemoose.ie) playing and we all had a really good night. There is also a dancefloor area through the back that opens up later in the night.
Dress Code: Anything goes from what I could tell
Looking for an open pub on Good Friday, we found Molly's Pub. Live traditional music starting at 9:30, we got there at 9:00 and got a table in this tiny, narrow pub. Good thing, because the people just kept a'comin and by time the musicians arrived (one by one), the place was jam packed. Music was excellent, but the crowd went wild when Sinn Fein leader, Gerry Adams showed up. What a night!
