We love the traditional Irish music which seems to just happen in many pubs....we found group which played together and followed them around 4 different pubs on Wednesday nights. This was one of the 4 pubs and my favourite one. Great atmosphere....a bit more room....more seating available....love the family atmosphere of Irish pubs
