Created by the same crew that devised the perennially popular Allen's, Dora Keogh is an unusually elegant pub. The evening brings music, with local fiddlers and vocalists strutting their stuff; famous fiddler Natalie McMaster has been known to join in, as have various members of the Irish group the Chieftains.

I was surprised to find an Irish pub in the heart of Greek Town, but somehow it just seems to fit in! A great place to meet up with friends on the east side of the city and across the road from Broadview subway station....More

Had a good night here. Good music. Serve harp and kilkenny! They don't serve them in Ireland anymore so it was authentic Ireland 1980s which was pretty cool

Dropped in for a beer and a bite to eat. Nice pub atmosphere inside and I was pleasantly surprised by the group of musicians that casually gather every Saturday afternoon to play some authentic celtic music. They have a good selection of craft beers, and...More

Met some friends for a pint before dinner down the road. Authentic Irish pub with traditional live music. Side rooms are good for conversation. Be aware that there is no table service, so you have to go to the bar for service.
