“Trad and Session Night...Every Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

T&H is the quintessential Low beamed Olde' Sod Pub in back of the Merchants Quay and the River Suir. As times have gotten difficult for Irish pubs and most of them have had to take on more of a stylized dining experience as well, "The Doolan" runs the gamut. The oysters are awesome, in this atmosphere with a pint of the creamy black stuff... if the music is just right, it takes on the classic mystical, magical Irish feel. While I could personally do without all the dollar bills pegged to the ceiling in the back room, its soon forgiven amongst a crowd that will carry a lively conversation amidst song well into the evening. Sinead O'Connor apparently played one of her first gigs here and Liam Clancy of the Clancy brothers used to own it. This place is old and classic for sure to be sure and music is the lifeblood.

“We stayed all evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

We only popped in for one pint after lunch and stayed all evening. The pub has a lovely friendly atmosphere and the live music was amazing. A properly Irish experience.

“A lively Pint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Located in the city centre, T&H Doolins attracts a crowd across the age spectrum. Many nights there is live music. The walls are adorned with one dollar bills bearing the messages of travellers from across the pond and other far flung places. The atmosphere is lively, staff friendly and Guinness..great!
