One of many great pubs in Dingle

Great atmosphere and character in the place. Traditional music both nights we were there. Roof is below head height as u walk in gives the place a real old style feel

We tripped on this pub mid-week in March. How lucky we were. Music was fantastic and the atmosphere was to like and enjoy. I can imagine in season this place is mobbed. Friendly and worth a visit on a night in Dingle.

We loved this pub, great music friendly people - just what you imagine of the welcoming atmosphere. We tried a different pub our second night in Dingle and didn't even have a drink, right back to O'Sullivan!!

O'Sullivan's may be small but the craic is mighty. Arguably my favourite pub in Dingle and beyond, the live music is beyond compare. Very much a local place. Go!

We loved this spot. The music was wonderful, the atmosphere was great, and the bartenders were really friendly. If you go, get there well before the music starts if you want to get a good seat. The place gets packed.

So Dingle is full of cool shops, pubs, pubs (did I say that already?) and music, and Tommy and Saundra's place is - besides having the best paint job - probably the best. For one thing, it's close to parking and a block from the shore. For another, Tommy O'Sullivan and his cool Texan wife, Saundra, play and sing most... More

We walked here from our B&B - not more than 10 minutes. What atmosphere! Low ceilings, nice peat fire and great trad music. The place was packed. Staff so friendly and all the people there were having a blast - great to talk to everyone. This was the best time I had in Dingle. GO - GO - GO!!!!!

I met the owner, Tommy O'Sullivan and his wife, and listened to his band, as well as another great fiddle band. The place was friendly, cozy and eclectic. I had a very memorable evening.

This place was highly recommended by several locals, and didn't disappoint. Place is small so get there early if you want to see the musicians. Music was great, and place was full!

O'Sullivan's was recommended by one of the shopkeepers as a great place to hear music. When we got there after dinner, the music session was underway, and the place was packed. It was very entertaining, warm, welcoming atmosphere, and the Guinness was very good. A newlywed German couple and their bridal party showed up, and the musicians got them all... More
