We have a wide range of bands including Elvis, 7 piece Swing Band, open-mic nights and ‘The Beermats’ who are a fantastic replica of ‘The Dubliners’. Every Sunday you’ll find an atmospheric traditional Irish music session taking place and complimenting the musicians. In July and August we’ll have Irish dancers performing and teaching for those who wish to learn.
