Muiris Dan's Bar
Muiris Dan’s sports bar is the ideal location situated in the heart of Dingle town. In many ways Muiris Dan’s today embodies why Dingle is so famed for its pubs as it has managed to retain a sense of the past while at the same time providing a place where young people can mix with the town’s old stock, situated at the heart of the action on John Street just beside the Mall Bridge.
Padraic Corcoran is the grand-son of Muiris Dan himself, the third generation of publicans in the family, who took over the running of the pub from his uncle Bernard O’Sullivan in 2004. Up until that point the premises had operated mainly as a farm supplies shop with a small bar which was only open during the day.
Padraic embarked on the venture of establishing Muiris Dan’s as a pub that could hold court with some of the bigger hostelries in the town, with lifelong friend Tommy Griffin who grew up just up the street in Marian Park. As one of Kerry’s celebrated footballers, with five All-Irelands under his belt, Tommy spent months collecting photographs and memorabilia and he and Padraic have managed to transform the pub into something of a Mecca for any football or sports fan.
