Dick Macks – Dingle, County Kerry

There’s not many pubs like Dick Mac’s left. By night it seems as though every rattan stool, bentwood chair and scuff-resistant step is occupied by someone of a different nationality. All silhouetted by the shoe boxes rising up the wall. The lighting overhead is as stark as you get. Everywhere the banter is in full flow. When the music starts, all ankles tap. If these people are not Irish, they sure want to be.
