I would recommend "half past five o’clock in the evening" as that sounds the best.

If you WANT to put five thirty, then you can just spell it out, but do not add "o’clock" after it, as you usually only use "o’clock" after the whole hours (meaning five o’clock, six o’clock, ten o’clock, etc).

I think you would say, "at half past five o’clock in the evening" or "at five thirty in the afternoon".

You don’t need to put "in the afternoon," "in the evening" or "p.m." if it’s clear that it is at that time.  You need only say "half after five o’clock."
