A family pub with star quality, Dick Mack’s in Dingle has had plenty of famous faces prop up its bar over the years
The clue to the Dick Mack’s previous life is on the walls: the remnants of the MacDonnell shoe business, started by the grandfather of the pub’s current owner, Oliver MacDonnell, are everywhere. And, get this: Oliver was born in a room above the pub and has lived there for his whole life.
But even before you step through the door you’ll be walking with the stars. Oliver’s father, Dick, created a “Walk of Fame” in front of the pub when the film Ryan’s Daughter brought Robert Mitchum to the Dingle peninsula in 1968.
In fact, the first famous souls to be immortalized on the walk included Tom Crean, an Antarctic explorer from Kerry and writer Jerome O’Connor. Crean also was honored with a lager named after him by the Dingle Brewing Co.
Even Dolly Parton found a place for herself in Dick Mack’s: the bar counter.
Sure where else would you get it, as we like to say.
