We came here because we watched the Irish Pub documentary that featured this pub. We learned that the pub culture in Ireland is very different and we wanted to experience it ourselves. This was a "locals" type of place and we remembered the owner right...More

I'm hesitant to write a glowing review of Curran's because it's the authentic local hang-out vibe that makes it so special. For the second year in a row, we stopped in thinking we'd have a drink or two, only to stay for about 8 hours....More

First time to Curran’s in Dingle and was really impressed with the cold, fresh pint of Guinness we had. Friendly staff and authentic surroundings. Highly recommended

Curran’s is a piece of history that should not be missed. The locals were friendly and the beer was good. I’m glad places like Curran’s still exist.

If you get it you get it: Curran’s is the best pub in Ireland. Creamy pints, the best craic, and James the best publican in the country. Our first night we were alone with the locals - charming and funny as they switched between English...More
