This rock bar near the city center boasts wall fulls of Rock memorabilia, friendly staff and is very close to the historic barrack street area with an old fort and old cathedral (st Finbarrs)... excellent place!

A pub dedicated to rock & blues music, decorated with old records, concert tickets and paraphernalia. Never got a bad pint in here. Worth checking out.

Stumbled upon this on our way to some other kip. Should have stayed in Ziggys. The Barmen are sound and the Guinness is lovely.

Very unwelcoming locals and terrible pop music and poor selection of beers. Would mark this one as an avoid. We didn't even stay long enough to finish a pint. Seek out Fred Zeppelin's instead!

A shrine to the legends of Irish rock'n'blues. Great to have a pint and watch live footage of Rory Gallagher!
