It is not surprising that Matt Molloy's Bar overflows all year with visitors from all five continents.
What is surprising is that the bar manages to keep the sense of intimacy which is vital for the music to flourish. Knowing that traditional musicians prefer cosy nooks and crannies, Matt has purposely kept the bar small so that they can congregate to enjoy a pint and a tune. If he is not on tour, Matt joins in the session and if you have been dazzled by his flute playing with The Chieftains, you can sit down here for the price of a pint and hear the same music.
This bar was established in 1896 and the current proprietor ensures there is traditional Irish music here up to seven nights a week.
A traditional Irish atmosphere, and the best of Irish traditional music.
