Wow; great music and people

Some locals took us here; wow, musicians playing, great scene. We even met and talked to Des O'Halloran; local legend. I only wish i could pronounce the name of this place

Came to listen to Irish music and unlike other bars in Ireland this one starts at 6 pm with traditional Irish music. Good Irish coffee too!
