7 Dublin pubs doing live music again

We’re so glad to see it returning!

We’ve missed a lot over the last year or so, but one thing in particular has been the lad in the corner of a bar belting out trad songs while we all sing along. Glasses are clinked, toes are tapped and if you’re lucky, someone will whip out a pair of spoons and bounce them along to the beat. It’s one of our favourite things about the pub, and the potential of stumbling across a wee session makes a night out so much more exciting. If you’re wondering what Dublin spots have begun reintroducing live music, have a gander below.

The Cobblestone, Smithfield

The glory days are back with live trad music every evening of the week at this Dublin 7 spot. Hup!

The Big Romance, Parnell Street

If you’re in the mood for something jazzy, look no further than The Big Romance every Sunday evening.

The Wild Duck, Temple Bar
