I'm hesitant to write a glowing review of Curran's because it's the authentic local hang-out vibe that makes it so special. For the second year in a row, we stopped in thinking we'd have a drink or two, only to stay for about 8 hours....More

First time to Curran’s in Dingle and was really impressed with the cold, fresh pint of Guinness we had. Friendly staff and authentic surroundings. Highly recommended

Curran’s is a piece of history that should not be missed. The locals were friendly and the beer was good. I’m glad places like Curran’s still exist.
