Background story of the business with Shane Finn, Luke and Justin (owners).

After living in Dublin for over two years, the one name that kept coming up in conversation when Dingle was mentioned (which was all the time), outside of how many Fungie's are we on now or Dick Mack's pub was honestly Bean In Dingle. It is amazing how big the brand has grown and it seems to leave a lasting impression on anyone that has made a visit to town.

It all started with Justin's interest in coffee and Luke packing up his office job to pursue the family business further into a fulltime career. They not only have a shop but a roaster located in Dingle town and have a location open in Killarney town now also. Check out the full story on Shane Finn's podcast with the link provided above.

Fun Fact: Bean have an online store on their website where you can purchase their very own coffee and many other varieties of coffee beans which can be shipped internationally.


My Boy Blue

Background on the business with Shane Finn, Steve and Amy (owners).

Quite new to the Dingle scene but just as impressive is My Boy Blue. Yes they specialise in coffee but just as important is their very contrasting food menu, offering something unique to Dingle town.

The business is run by Steve (Dublin) and Amy (Dingle local) and is another great success story over the last few years. A great place to check out for brunch, lunch or takeaway coffee when you are in Dingle with their avocado dish proving to be a fan favourite.

Fun Fact: My Boy Blue serves 3FE coffee in their establishment which I am sure many people will be familiar with in Ireland.


The Fish Box

Key Information

Speciality: Fish, The Fish Box and local Dick Mack's Brewery pints

Location: Green Street

Background on the family run business with Shane Finn and Pete (owner).

One of the big success stories in Dingle town over the last three years has been this family run business. The only problem with the venue from a tourist point of view is that it is always busy which is a testament to their top class food, service and hospitality.

As the name suggests, they specialise in fish with their signature dish actually named after the premises. Check out their latest menu online, give them a follow on their Instagram account and be sure to call in when you visit Dingle.

Fun Fact: You can order their food online through their brand new app so if you want to get takeaway food while staying in Dingle this is a great alternative option.
