Dingle restaurants and pubs-open in February?

Hi everyone,

We'll be in Dingle for three nights in February. Any restaurant and pub recommendations for that time of year? Thanks so much.

Murphy's is always open, also Geaneys.

Some restaurants may be closed, some only open two or three nights a week.

What sort of food are you looking for?

There is always food and music in town, very little back west.

Thanks so much for your response-we aren't fussy about food, just something tasty and not too expensive. We'd love to hear music in pubs, but are traveling with older kids (17 and 14). Are they allowed into pubs at all? expected to leave at a certain time? would be great to get recommendations for that time of year-

Technically Oma is correct, but I have seen children this age sitting quietly at a table and listening to the music in Murphy's later than 9pm if the family has been in for a late meal, say 8pm, not sitting at the bar or being obvious. The marina pub has an early, 6pm, session on Sundays.

In Dingle ,try to pick up a copy of the West Kerry Live, its a free magazine and lists all the pubs with music every night, it comes out fortnightly, the next one is due 18th January then the 1st and 15th Feb. Most of the larger supermarkets and Morans garage have them.

February is when the hospitality people in Dingle take their holidays so it is very quiet. The Half Door will be open but otherwise it's dining in the pubs which are quite good

John Benny's is a good bet for music as the owner and his wife are musicians. They also do food and there would be no problem with the the younger ones staying on for the music, especially if you have eaten there
