“true Irish atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

The rooms are basic, yet very clean.
We got what we pad for. The real fun began downstairs, in the bar area.
Free wifi was available at the bar, along with a warm & welcoming chat with the bar tender.
Meals were hearty & homely.
A couple of gentlemen began playing traditional music around 9ish & a young lad preformed tradition Irish dancing which was one of the hightlights for my wife.
Couldn't fault the staff or the atmosphere

Dingle Pub was hopping the night we were there. They had live music and a great atmosphere. My husband learned to play "irish" pool with some local young men. We had a fabulous time!

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!!
