Dick Mack's, Dingle
Gorgeous Dingle is full of bizarre and memorable pubs, and Dick Mack’s is our favourite. In a town that’s fostered a reputation as a place for the arts, this is a pub that feels like it hasn’t changed in generations. The walls are littered with oddities, from boots to bottles. The barmen are often less than attentive (but it feels right), and the different rooms are like a mini-maze of fireplaces and cozy snugs. Set in a former shoe retailer, and home to its own little walk of fame outside the front door, Dick Mack’s often has some great local trad music talent inside. There’s a new brewery right behind the pub, offering tours, making a great addition to a spot dating back to 1899. If you’re around in early December, the pub’s also at the heart of Other Voices.
