A little bit of Galway in Dublin: (live) Irish music, laid back, Irish ambiance

Although not as awesome as the Crane in Galway, this was easily the most "traditional" Irish bar I ventured into while in Dublin. It had musicians in the corner playing some live Irish music. And, it was warm and homey, giving you a place to pause away from the music as well on the other side of... read more

This is a brilliant, authentic Irish pub with Live Irish music and a good selection of beers. It is a proper Irish experience and so much better than the 'plastic' Irish for tourists in the Temple Bar District. Staff are friendly and the atmosphere in the pub is fantastic. Definitely a place to visit and frequent when in Dublin.

Cobblestone Pub was highly recommended by the locals. This is a pub located in Smithfield, Dublin, just down the street from the Jameson Whiskey distillery. If you want an authentic Irish pub experience, this is definitely the place to visit. They have a great selection of Irish beers on tab and they have live, traditional Irish music nightly. Definitely a... More

6 of us from Canada had just been to Story of the Irish (Wow!) in Smithfield and one of the staff recommended Oscars for lunch (very nice) and the Cobble Stone for a real Irish pub. We went in for one drink and stayed for three! There was a group of Irish musicians just jammin in the corner - it... More

We came here last night with some friends from italy. From the outside it looks terrible, but inside the atmosphere was fantastic. Lovely drinks and music. Really great night.

Get off the beaten path and visit this pub. My husband and I walked here, in the rain, at night. In the front there is a section reserved for musicians who play Traditional Celtic music. People just show up and join in. If you have an instrument with you--go ahead and jump in. It was fabulous. We didn't eat here,... More

For authentic sessions (Irish Music) this is THE place. A local friend took us by, we had a few drinks and experienced the genius and uplifting music of regulars playing late into the night. Although crowded, we just tucked in, went with the flow and were rewarded with a genuine experience. Honestly, this was a highlight of our Dublin visit,... More

Really great welcoming pub with excellent live music and friendly people, only downfall is say is the shape of the pub means that there isn't much space to stand and listen to the music, plenty of space to sit else where for a drink and chat though

Nice little pub with a good beer selection. Local trad music makes for a great atmosphere over a drink. Stop here after dinner or to continue with a drink after your Jameson tour.
