“Filthy toilets, staff quite rude and unhelpful”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We arrived late into Dingle on a family holiday. We were hungry and went to the Dingle pub as it was the first place we came across that was still serving "pub food".There were nine adults and two children. We were seated after some confusion on numbers even though we had said our numbers. The waitress seemed put out having to join tables and then we were left two seats short? The owner and waitress were very rude and didn't communicate in any way other than making us feel uncomfortable. Any time we asked for service it was met with eyes rolled and a really bad attitude. Only it was so late we would have left. The food was less than average, A piece of garlic bread costing 8.95 euro!. Also when the bill arrived there was an extra meal and drink included, when we questioned it we were treated like we had made the mistake and not the staff.The toilets were absolutely horrific, filthy and the floor was soaking wet in both cubicles and outside and smelled of urine. I would not recommend this pub in any way. We spent quite a lot of money that night (200+euro) and would expect to be treated with basic manners. If you visit Dingle Stay away from this place.

We arrive late in the afternoon into Dingle after an amazing drive from Clonakilty. We stopped looked acroos the road and saw this lovely pu on the the harbour. we went accross and found they had vacancies and took the 2nd floor room that overlooked the harbour. One of the lovely young men took my bag up as it was a little difficult using the stairs. He was delightful. Our room was special - it overlooked the harbour and had such a cute bathroom that two ladies found more than adequate. We headed down the street to discover tha twe could buy 2 wines and the most amaxzing crab crumble that we both had ever experienced. Then headed back towards our hotle. We had the Guiness Pie that was great but not in compariosn to the crumble crab pie, listened to music for a while then said back to our pub. Well not to bed the music just fantasitc and we stayed until it ended. Not usr etha they were intersted in Australian's seemed to have greater interset in americans. But that was not a problem as a French Guy played guitar and sang the most amazing songs (from the crowd) . The following day we visited the main area of dingle and found that this town really had an enormous amount to offer. Just wish we had time to stay longer.

Room Tip: try to gain one on the harbour side they are amazing

This place is dirty and grubby go elsewhere. The food is only average. The toilets need a major overhaul. When I asked the guy serving us about gluten free options, he didn't know what I was talking about.

Myself and five family members Called for a drink and something to eat. Smell of wee terrible coming out of toilets really bad . Staff struggled to speak or serve as they were in deep discussion behind bar Terrible spend your money elsewhere plenty of better places in dingle cleaner and better staff. Shame could be a great pub good location but poorly run that day hopefull a off day.

Easy to locate, just there on the main street. The room was large and spacious, even had an extra bed, which was nice. Great shower. Staff were lovely.
Breakfast was delicious, the man serving was delightful and very accommodating and lovely.
Even the pub grub food in the afternoon was brilliant. One of the best meals we had during our stay.
Only thing is when booking, we were told there was private parking, turns out there isn't, so we had to park on the main street. We were lucky to find a space, but the parking was free, so it was fine.

Overall good stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor are much quieter, as they are on top of the pub, and the music can be loud. Se...

Excellent location in the heart of Dingle , and an excellent pub downstairs. With many others all within 2 minutes walk.
The Rebel band that night were under orders not to play too Republican songs which was advertised as a Ballad night.

The tv was hidden in a corner and the bathroom was small. The cleaners started early in the morning and were rushing us out before check out time.

Other than that a nice room in a great location.

Had some of the best steak here. Can't really fault the place. Session definitely on and the music was cracking. could not ask for a better overnight stay. The atmosphere in the pub alone is worth every penny.
