Paul, One of the best places I have been is Doolan, County Clare It seems to be the mecca for real Irish folk music but you might get better ideas from any Irish Catters Cheers Bill

and galway is also a wonderful place for traditional music. you can find people playing all up and down the streets (not always traditional music, but sometimes you stumble upon a treasure). and do not miss the pub "the crane". i sat in on a fabulous session, and i have friends who spent virtually all their time there.

Yes more more more. I too am going to go Ireland this summer. My whole family is coming (11&17years old) as well as my husband and my self. They aren't as enthusiastic about Irish singing--especially the traditional as I am but willing to go to pubs et al.. But please tell me/us where to go. We'll be in Dublin some of the time. Also sneaking off to see a little of England and Wales (Bath Stonehenge). Thanks--Lorraine

The town of Dingle, in Co. Kerry, is full of pubs with traditional music every night in the summer. The town is also full of tourists, but the music is generally good anyway. And the area is absolutely gorgeous.

Lorraine:

There's a new multimedia centre called Ceol in Captain O'Neills Hotel in Smithfield, in Dublin. I haven't seen it yet - but hear great reports from people whose judgement I would trust. There's a very good acoustic folk club there on Saturday nights, also. Recommended.

Apart from that, try the following pubs - all of which are in the same general area of inner Dublin:

Hughes' of Chancery Street
The Cobblestone of Smithfield
Noone's of Manor Street (?)

Regards

p.s. To find the old thread on Dublin pubs, try "forum search" in the thread list page - then put "Dublin pubs" in the "subject" box.
