“Door staff very rude”
Reviewed 12 October 2011

Just returned from Dingle .The Dingle pub was a great bar in its day,But on my recent visit I was shocked by the treatment of the "bouncer" towards customers truly disgraceful I was there with my wife and he wanted to know if I had a lot to drink this was very early on in the night I can tell you I did not go in which is a pity as I have been going there for the last 18 years.I know they get a lot of stags but common sense please,they could take a leaf out of the pub down the road droichead beag their doorman was very professional,I will not be returning!!!!

This is a pub it does NOT pretend to be anything else. The accomodation is found by way of going into the street for 20 metres to then entering the pub. Parking is via street parking or a small free car park about 100 metres aways. The publican helped us with our bags, which was nice. They serve great pub food with live music. when we were there the guitar player was brilliant and very friendly taking requests and having a laugh with the customers. We thoroughly enjoyed the music and took home the CD which we sang along to the next day in the hire car. The accomodation is basic but clean. we had a room in the eaves as we wanted a double bed with a single. we weren't bothered by any noise. The room was small and the shower room tiny this is not a complaint. The breakfast set us up for the day.

The Dingle Pub is a rollicking bar that plays fun Irish music many nights a week. It's located right in the heart of Dingle Town steps from everything this charming harbor port has to offer. Oh and they have a couple rooms on top of the bar. They're cheap, comfortable enough and offer a so-do Irish breakfast fry-up in the beery-smelling bar the next morning. Are they the cleanest rooms? Nope. Are the walls sound-proofed? Absolutely not. Are the bartenders who hand you the keys the friendliest guys in Ireland? Probably not. But the Dingle Pub B&B is just fine for falling into bed totally spent after a day spent touring the Dingle Peninsula and a night spent doing a musical pub crawl.

One major gripe: wifi only works in the pub despite what they a) advertise on their site and b) tell you repeatedly when you go down to ask about it, as if your repeated failed attempts in the room above meant nothing.

Stayed here with friends in July. The room was very basic but clean. The bed was a bit small for a double but still comfortable. The location was great with lots of pubs and restaurants on the same street. The full Irish breakfast was just what we needed after a late night out!!

Prior to arriving at The Dingle Pub & B&B I had emailed Tom (The owner) and asked if they had boxty on their breakfast. Tom's reply "No, but we will do it for you" and that's how the weekend started. The Dingle Pub was absolutely brilliant. I would recommend to stay here. The live bands got the crowd dancing and singing. The helpfulness of all the staff was outstanding. The comfort of the rooms was good. The food well, perfect comes to mind. Everyone was very helpful and I just had the best weekend. Thank you so much everyone, Toni and I are booking to come back in September.

Even though you stay over the bar area, really nice and clean. If the noise bothers you, go join them!
