History of Dinty's Bar

Dintys Union Hall one of the areas well known establishments, is currently run by Martin & Rose O’Donovan. Having taken over in September 2015, they are no strangers to the pubtrade, as they returned to Ireland to run Dinty’s after spending time abroad running a small,chain of pubs in Belgium and Spain. Previously, they had run The Colla House Hotel in Schull,for over 21 years.

An institution put on the culinary map of West Cork, it was previously owned by Dinty Collins and his wife Marion for over 25 years. They had purchased it from Annie Hayes who ran the pub until she was 90 years old, having taken it over from her father before her.

With an illustrious pedigree of owners, it seems only fitting that the building has an illustrious past also. The main premises is over 100 years old, and the adjoining dining room, bought in 1991, was previously the village shoemakers. This stands beside another important feature in village life, of past, the old coal stores where local boats like The Emily Barrett , The Kathleen, The May and The Envermor delivered coal to Union Hall.

It’s more modern history, sees the building enshrined in the Hollywood movie ‘War of the Buttons’; outside Dinty’s is where the boys were embarrassed in front of the whole village. oull need to see it to know why.

The film was based on a 1912 French novel called ‘La Guerre des boutons’ by Louis Pergaud and the movie was produced by local area resident, Lord David Puttnam. There’s a small ‘War of the Buttons’ plaque above the dining room entry for posterity.

There’s plenty to see and do in this small fishing community and you’ll find a hearty meal and cold pint waiting for you at the end of a busy day whether you’re here for business or pleasure.
