Great pub. Great pints. Great music. Great friends. It's everything a trip to ireland should be. Can't wait to go back :)
I have been to the Crane numerous times with groups of music lovers and musicians from group tours which I run to Ireland every year. Mick Crehan is always very accommodating with our groups and will make sure that we are well taken care of. During my last tour I needed a space to hold a sean nos dance class... More
We had a few drinks before the music began upstairs. The Beamish is good and the staff are friendly. The band were very good including 3 fiddles, a flute, a few guitars and an ukulele. Would definitely go again for Beamish and the traditional music.

The musicians came from all... More
Visited here on the recommendation of a local girl I was chatting to in a small café that morning. Not disappointed. Great craic and great music. Mostly trad the night I was there with the odd song and dance. Not much room upstairs which adds to the real “Irish atmosphere”.
The server at the Quey Street Kitchen recommended the Crane for music and local flavor. What a treat , more than 20 musicians raising the roof! Musician sit facing each other at a long table with people joining and leaving as they feel. The music is upstairs with a quiet pub on the ground floor. We couldn't leave, the music... More
