Want an authentic Irish pub experience, complete with great traditional ("trad") music? Find your way to this pub. The owner, Tommy O'Sullivan -- an accomplished musician himself -- has a constant flow of talented musicians stopping by to perform. I've been there multiple times. It's always a pretty full house of folks flocking there for the music, drinks and an... More

Had a fun evening listening to some great Trad music here. No food, but brought in a fantastic pizza from around the corner. Saw Seamus Bagley here. His ballads were good, but as he got drunker and more lecherous I had to leave. The service in the pub was good. Seems to be a tourist bar, a few locals, but... More

This was the first time I have been into an Irish pub playing traditional music. It was packed out on a Wednesday night. The beer was great and the music was good too however I preferred O'Flaherty's a bit but I can't put my finger on why!!

I prefer O'Flaherty's but O'Sullivan's is without question a great place to go for good drinks and great music. It is a cozy low-ceilinged intimate spot.

We stopped in after dinner to enjoy a drink and some Irish music, and we weren't disappointed. The pub is small and gets crowded, but this was the best live music we heard during our week in Ireland.

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!
