Had a couple of great evenings in this tiny pub with live music and a great atmosphere. If you're looking for traditional music, performed by enthusiasts, then this is the place. Bring an instrument and join in!

Wrapped up our Ireland trip with our favorite evening - live traditional Irish music from Jimmy Crowley at An Teach Beag ("little house") next to the artist himself and the whole place singing along. Amazing.

Norma Walsh suggested this little pub, and we found a true irish atmosphere; everyone is involved to listen with attention all the sessions and to sing some songs. The musicians really enjoy their music, and all the public is there not to chat with loud...More
