Dingle’s Traditional Irish Music
Dingle is famous in Ireland for its wealth of traditional musicians. There is no shortage of places to catch top class Irish Music in Dingle. There are performances held regularly in more of a concert-type setting in An Siopa Ceoil on Strand St. and St. James Church on Main St. These performances start earlier in the evening, and it is worth booking in advance.
We then have an average of 6 pubs every night to choose from to see brilliant musicians in fantastic pub settings. These performances start at approx 9.30pm each evening and should not be missed. We can direct you to our favourite spots each evening.
