The pub has live sessions with typical Irish music. Fiddlers, Celtic harps, flutes, guitars, banjos and uillean pipes play all night. Come in, enjoy, relax and listen while having a good pint of local beer.

We had this bar recommended to us from a local and we enjoyed it so much we went twice during our trip. It's off the beaten path of bars but it's about a 5 min straight shot walk from the Brazen Head across the river....More

It was a weird but enjoyable experience in Hughes Bar. We arrived at 8.45pm on a Tuesday night, and it was just us and the barman. He was really friendly, and we had a long chat about a lot of things. He said there would...More

Friday night is snug music night. Really enjoyable & hi-quality performances from local musicians. They even let me sing in Scots Gaelic!!! Great beer & whisky selection too.

This place must be a local secret. The perfect end to our 10 day trip. Very quiet and cozy. Warm, welcoming atmosphere, with neighborly staff. But, clearly the best music of our trip, in a wonderfully intimate setting.

it's a few minutes walk from the touristy Temple Bar area, so here is your chance to see how typical pubs look like (well, be careful what you wish for, it may surprise you). The place is less crowded. Late in the evening there live...More

My favourite pub in Dublin. Family owned and run. Great home cooked lunches. No fancy extras on anything just good service, great Guinness, and decent prices. No annoying TVs blasting sport or news, no jukebox, no gimmicks. A pub for pub's sake. Well worth visiting.

Called in here for dinner at 1pm only to be told that all the main courses on the lunch menu were finished. Strange that! Settled for a club sandwich which was nice.
