My wife and I are traveling to Dublin next week and we love traditional Irish music. Where should we go to hear the best in the city?
My wife and I are going to be in Dublin from Sept 11th through the 16th and we love traditional Irish music. Anything with a fiddle, bodhrán and madolin, it's for us. For some reason there's a bit of a Maritime music scene here in Vancouver and it's got a lot in common with traditional Irish music.
We prefer legitimacy though, not plastic paddy stuff setup just for tourists (yes, I realize we are also tourist, but hopefully not that
kind). We're thinking a "cozy" pub where everyone sings along vs some giant venue.
So where should we go? We're staying around Parnell St and Gardiner Street (here
basically). We're both mid/late 20s, so a later night thing isn't bad. But we're usually tapped by midnight or 1, not seeking bed at dawn.
