We loved the courthouse. The live music was amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful with some tips on what to do with in Ireland.

We were referred here after a whiskey tasting at Dingle Distillery. What incredible traditional Irish music in a very down-to-earth pub. The whiskey and Guinness went well with the music of an amazing accordion player, David Healy, and guitarist and vocalist, Gearoid O'Duinnin. Fantastic night.

What a pub! Music was unbelievable. My only criticism would be that I would like more songs rather than musical pieces. But all in all... a great night!

We were there on a Wednesday evening when Tom O'Sullivan was playing. Crowded, but people made room and we had good conversation as well as hearing great music. Recommended

What a great place to spend an evening! Small bar, but with fantastic music and a good selection of quality whiskeys and spirits, and some great local beers on tap. Absolutely worth a stop if there is music going!
