Caitins – An Old-Style Kerry Pub with Live Traditional Music


Overlooking Dingle Bay, midway between Glenbeigh and Cahirciveen, Caitins pub is a traditional old-style Irish bar that has been
run by the Golden family for over a hundred years.

Caitins is believed to have been one of the first legalised ‘shebeens’ in Ireland. Steeped in history and folklore, the pub has been
patronised by some of Irelands most famous people, such as Daniel O’Connell and the literary great Brendan Behan.
O’Connell’s visits were legendary. It’s known that on his many journeys he stopped here to change horses and enjoy the friendly
atmosphere and wholesome food.

The pub has evolved over the centuries from a two-room ‘shebeen’ to one of the most famous stopping-points
on the Ring of Kerry. Today it continues to provide you with the best of food, drink and entertainment, all served at this
unique old-world setting.
