We visited on a midweek night, the bar was pleasantly full with a great crowd. The service was good and the local Irish band was excellent. A great nights venue

Went to An Bodhran last night. A rather tiny bar, but the atmosphere was cozy and intimate with friendly staff. The best part was the two piece live band. Great original songs and music. A perfect first stop for a pub crawl.
