Bars and pubs in Dingle peninsula are more than somewhere to drink. They are ancient places that carry memories and traditions of a time when bars supplied most of a community’s needs. Household goods, hardware, groceries and even coffins were stocked behind the panelled wood and smoke stained veneer of these establishments.

An teach tabhairne - The public house was just what it says on the tin -  a place for all to gather, do business, gather supplies and mark life’s passing. In more recent times the bar has become more hospitality based (a place of celebration) with good food, music, teas. coffees and even overnight accommodation available in many establishments.Traditional music sessions lure the passing visitor into places offering warmth and soul and gentle conversation. Meet local people and chat with some interesting characters in their place of relaxation.
