Not the most attractive place from the outside, but a pleasant enough pub inside. What makes this place great is the quality of the traditional Irish music and the friendly inclusive atmosphere generated by the local musicians that frequent it. The beer was good too!

Tucked away off the beaten path, this place is a TREASURE. Very friendly service at the bar, and the music and the company can't be beat. The owner is very committed to traditional Irish music and has created a space to attract area musicians and interested locals. If you go during a time when there's no music, relax and enjoy... More

Awesome music, looks sketchy from the outside but is fairly open with a good outdoor area. Not super touristy which is a plus.

A great, and seeming very "local" pub in central Dublin. Wonderful traditional music. Right across the square from Jamison's, so the perfect place to grab a pint after you distillery tour.

Stopped in for a pint on the recommendation of our AirBnB host and were not disappointed! Great local musicians were just sitting around a table in the corner playing together - fantastic traditional Irish folk music. A must visit if you want to get away from the tourist stops.

Apparently this bar is great for traditional music, and from my visit today, I can see why. At 5pm on my visit, the band was in full swing. Generally one has to wait til about 10pm, before a note is played, and I have to say that it's great to see an early session. There was a mixture of locals... More

I am a musician, and I think this is one of the best pubs in Dublin if you want to play or hear some irish music! The owner is very kind, and you will feel very comfortable! I 100% recommend it!!!

The Cobblestone is an ideal spot to see authentic Irish music and a natural pub environment. It's where I recommend all tourists visit when they want to avoid Temple Bar and other tourist traps. When there isn't a band playing, the pub is cozy and quiet and with the live music, it's hopping and fun! The fact that they have... More
