Very lively and fun

Lovely well-established pub with a nice music scene. Grand location too near Smithfield, especially since the area has been managed better. Nice place, long may it remain.

A good place to enjoy some trad music without huge crowds but it's not quite as amazing as some make out. It's at the back of Smithfield Sq so jump off the luas there and walk past Fresh and over the road.

This pub is great! Nice traditional Irish music is played all night live by musicians that keep arriving at the bar. And, of course, all sorts of beer and drinks are available at the bar ;) If you are anywhere near Smithfield, give it a try!

Really one of the best places to go for traditional Irish music on the north side of Dublin. There is always usually music by the front door. But a few negatives. Bar is relatively narrow so you can be quite far from the music and it can get very packed (with tourists). The staff can be a bit surly but... More

Spent a couple of hours at this pub nursing a few guinnesses and listening to great Irish music. Mostly fiddles and the uilleann pipes. Typical of the Irish music pubs I remember visiting in the past minus the cigarette smoke. The end near the door is reserved for the musicians who come and go. A steady stream of people come...

It is not the largest of pubs but it certainly gets busy! Our group of 8 ladies went on a Thursday night and were greeted by musicians at the front door and a very packed bar. We found some seating right at the back when another group left. The drinks were reasonably priced - half the price of temple bar!... More

this pub has great traditioanl music every night. The draw back is that you cannot get very close to the musicians due to the layout. You can easily hear the music througout the pub.

There are traditional sessions in the front bar, well worth your time to listen. No food is served, but the staff have kindly made tea or supplied glasses of water for me now and then as I don't drink -- so if that's a concern, you can always ask!
