“music nights may not be as indicated on the web”
Reviewed August 7, 2008

I have have lived in County Tipperary for 17 years and visited the Rock of Cashel quite a few times, but never visited Bru Boru until this evening.

I checked out the web page and was delighted to see the show runs continuosly through the summer. I tried phoning the place using the number from the web. The phone number was an answering machine which gave out the following usfeul information. " " . i.e. no information at all. Nothing about booking. Nothing about times, dates. Nothing. Nada.

Tried the phone number numerous times, but with no joy. Still, having clicked on Sunday's date on the friendly web page, and confirmed the show was on on Sunday, we went, on Sunday evening. Great show.

Place was closed. Permanent nicely painted sign up outside the door saying that the show is on Monday (or was it Tuesday) to Saturday. Not Sunday.

Lazy, casual approach to web information. Based on this experience, and not ever having heard any locals talk about the show, I guess I'll wait another 17 years before trying again. Their loss.

Enjoy the show if you go! And leave feedback.
