We spent an enjoyable Tuesday evening here. Guinness was good and the pub was friendly with a great atmosphere. Some if the singers were excellent others good. but they played well together. I didn't initially notice a candle by the wash basin so supervise kids and be careful if you have had a few.

Lively, friendly and great fun. A traditional Irish pub, go into the front bar,,keep walking through and you will find room after room to sit and drink or dine. Even the smoking area feels pleasant. The musc is the highlight with people walking in with a huge range of instruments to join the group. A wonderful evening awaits you here!

We visited DeBarras on a Monday night and thoroughly enjoyed the traditional music on offer €3 entrance into the back room where 10 singers/players sat in the middle of the room surrounded by locals and travellers like ourselves. We were all invited to take a guest spot and this was taken up by a Syrian lady and another Catalan lady... More

An old real Irish pub, easy to miss, but worth looking out for. My wife and I visited twice, both times we received a very warm and genuine welcome. The food options are limited, but that in my opinion is a good thing, for whatever you order it arrives freshly cooked, full of flavour and best of all, reasonably priced.... More

De Barra's has live music of exceptional quality just about every evening and sometimes during the day. The cost is often free but even if there's a charge, it's modest. We recently hear Luka Bloom where he was releasing his newest album and several sessions of traditional Irish music. The pub is understandably popular; not to be missed if you're... More

Came one night when they had local folk music. It was amazing. The local musicians played at one of the tables in the middle of the bar. And they invited others to play also. Must have been the place to be, because a handful of people from all over the world (including an opera singer 8) played too. If you... More
