After a meal this is the best pub to go to to listen to Irish music. A very relaxing atmosphere and good ambience with top musicians playing great Irish music.

Indeed recommendable. Music every night – and not just for tourists, all the locals are there too. Local Irish music. The place is packed – for good reasons. So come early or stand up in a corner.
