We had just finished climbing over Mt. Brandon and OConnors was our stop for the night. MIchael bounded out of the door, welcoming us on the street by name and got us settled quite quickly. Great food,drink and hospitality makes this a welcoming stop along the way. MIchael regaled us with local war stories that made our visit even more...

We stayed one night at O'Connor'so as we were hiking the Dingle way. On arrival Michael looked after us with efficiency and boundless good humour. The pub was welcoming and the dining area was charming with nice views and an excellent menu. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. Michael and his wife made sure our stay was pleasant and...

I met my cousin in Ireland hoping to get a bit of craic and to make a few memories. Boy did we collect some great ones here. We came in late after a long drive on the first night. The kitchen was closed, but Michael didn't hesitate and served us the same dinner his family had earlier in the evening...

My family and I booked a trip to Cloghane in late Sept/early Oct. O'Connor's was the go-to pub/restaurant of our trip. Mike is the true host/bartender/orator...etc. I will forever remember the warm, welcoming feeling of this pub. The first night we were friends, the second night we were family, the third night we felt like we'd lived there for years....

Cloghane is the best little gem!! We came here after visiting the Dingle Peninsula. What a spot!!! The town is tiny so if you're a big city person, you may not like it! We LOVED it! The views from our window were amazing!! The room was very large and super clean and comfortable. Wifi was super weak in the room...

What a wonderful place. The pub was exactly as I had envisioned an Irish country pub to be; welcoming, inviting, conversing with other patrons, friendly service, warmed by a peat fire. The O'Connors have operated the pub since 1860. Though not spacious, our room, furnished with antiques, was comfortable with a lovely view over the bay. It met our needs...

After crossing Mount Brandon we spent the evening in O'Connor's Pub reminiscing with friends. Family run very friendly pub. Our host regaled us with stories regarding the history of the area which was fascinating. We spent a very comfortable night in the inn above with the sound of the rain on the tin roof. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful.

Stayed at O'Connors for one night while walking the Dingle Way. There are few amenities at Cloghane, a small shop exists but when I passed through there was only one place in town to get a meal and a beer - O'Connors.
