They have great live music. Anything from traditional Irish sessions through to rock and blues bands. All this is a smallish, very Irish bar ! Great fun :) You can check what's on each night via their facebook page, plus it has a contact #.

Sightseeing
The ruined monastery at Kilmacduagh is quiet amazing in it's size. The tall round tower dominates the surrounding countryside and is a sight to behold. You can walk around much of it free of charge (donations requested). The old chapel is still there, plus the ancient graveyard where locals still are buried.
