Nice bar near the park. Good for a couple drinks and not too expensive. They have Irish music at 9pm which is nice. Just make sure to get there a little bit early if you want to hear the music and don't want to stand.

This is a traditional Irish Pub with traditional Irish music. It is more a local's place than a Temple Bar tourist pub. Good selection of beers on tap but that is not the main attraction. It is the music. High quality musicians rotate in and...More

Definitely visit this pub, it is well worth the visit. They know how to pour some serious Guinness. What makes this place even better is the outdoor area for when the place is packed on the weekends.
