Dingle Restaurants

Will be in Dingle on the RS BOI tour next September. I am looking for restaurant recommendations for a free day in Dingle.

we stayed Dingle Bay Inn. Paudie's Restaurant is downstairs and we had several meals there and really enjoyed them. Good food and great location. Consider doing the Falconry Experience while there! We absolutely loved Dingle!

We stumbled upon a restaurant there that had a Michelin sign outside. We were intrigued so went in. Turns out it is a Michelin Bib gourmet class. They are below a star but a "good value" and good food level. We asked about tables and the proprietor said they were fully booked. That was when my now wife pulled her ace in the hole. She batted her eyes and said I had just proposed marriage a few minutes before & we wanted to celebrate. The proprietor took pity on us and asked can you be done by 6;30 pm (an hour and a half or so) We smiled and said yes of course. It was delicious.

We were on the Heart of Ireland RS tour 9/2022 and Dingle was a highlight. The accommodations and location are just magical. Honestly, you could chew on a piece of rope and eat seaweed from the bay and you would say its the best meal ever just because of the atmosphere. We had dinner at Out of the Blue(seafood) and it was great. I think you'll need a reservation to play it safe. We dropped into Murphys Pub for lunch. Small family atmosphere place no frills but we had the best Irish Stew ever and it was very reasonable. They had local ale as well. Extra credit tip...don't leave Dingle without trying the Dingle Gin.. its special. If you decide you love it and want to take some home, we were able to buy it at the Dublin airport duty free store. Have a great time.

I was in Dingle in September 2022 for two nights and would say it was by far the highlight of our time in Ireland. We ate at both the Charthouse and Out of the Blue. We had terrific meals at both restaurants. We did need reservations. Of note, I just looked at their websites to refresh my memory. The Charthouse has closed due to the owners retirement.
Quick funny story, we were in O'Sullivan's Courthouse Pub for some music and a pint (or two). A group of American tourists came in. One of the fellas tried to order a margarita and glass of pinot gris. You can only imagine the look he got from the young man behind the bar.

I want to thank everyone for their suggestion! Please keep them coming. However, we do have reservations for one of our two night at Land and Sea.

We were in Dingle in early April. We had excellent meals at The Fish Box, on Green St. (off the main street, across from St. Mary's Church), and also at Paudie's Bar/Dingle Bay Hotel, right along the main road.
The Fish Box has a varied menu, while Paudie's Bar has more traditional Irish food. Both restaurants had excellent food and good service.

I'd like to second Dootle's mention of Murphy's Pub in Dingle. My wife and I were there a week ago on a Heart of Ireland tour, and I had an excellent Irish Stew. Normally I drink Murphy's Stout, but I tried one of the local brewery's IPA and it was delicious. A day later, for dinner, we wandered around town, and came back to Murphy's again because they had the big Hurling match (Limerick vs. Tipperary) on the TV. And our team (Limerick) won by a lot!

Highly recommend Out of the Blue...highlight every time we are there! If you want a nice change Solas Tapas is wonderful. Both require reservations with OOTB notoriously hard to get into.

HIGHLY highly recommend Out of The Blue. It is truly superb. The best meal of our trip thus far. You must have reservations. We ate there last night and I went online this morning to see if we could go back tonight or tomorrow and they are booked up. It was $200 euro for 3 of us including a cocktail each and a carafe of wine. I’ve paid much more for lesser food! The food here is special (the inside is charming, too) https://outoftheblue.ie/

I want to thank everyone for their recommendations. I have made reservations at Out of the Blue and Land and Sea for our two free nights in Dingle. I am still interested in other places especially for lunch.
