An Droichead Beag, renowned for good music, pints, and plenty of craic!

An Droichead Beag, Dingle

One of Dingle’s best known pubs, An Droichead Beag (or An Droicead Beag in old Irish) meaning ‘The Little Bridge’, is housed in a historic building that dates back to the 1700s.

Over the years the venue has transformed from what was originally a butchers, bar, sweet shop and milking parlour to a popular traditional Irish music pub hosting the likes of The Hot House Flowers, Dolores Keane, Nigel Kennedy, Seamus Begley, The Coronas, and many more. It soon became known as one of the top traditional Irish music bars in the country, and it retains that reputation today.

The Sheahan family continue to cherish the tradition of “An Droichead Beag,” with the best of local traditional musicians playing nightly and have introduced a new improved drinks offering including cocktails. Currently the only late night venue in Dingle and our upstairs club opens on weekends. We have exciting plans to further develop the premises and customer experience over the coming years.
