Finbar's Irish bar is the place to go....particularly Sunday afternoon somehere between 4.30pm and 7pm, especially if you are Irish. Why on our last visit (2011) even our Irish companion said it was just like being in Ireland. Members of the band group come and go...sometimes there is a sing-a-long...seems quite inpromptu. and the music is traditional Irish...there was a "Danny Boy" but it is not an "Irish eyes are smiling " night

We called in last night 2013 and being a Saturday there was a band....and very enjoyable it was too with a mix of music.(no disco)...our latest visit 2014 for the Sunday afternoon session.....and the wood fired pizzas.

Recent refurbishments have added more space and a wood-fired pizza oven and eatery to the establishment, making it perfect venue. Our Irish friend recently introduced us to Finbars...how come it took us so long?

Lunch Fr-Su 12-2, Dinner Th-Su 5.30-7.30

My suggestion is you plan an overnight stay...so you can enjoy the Guinness

Finbars is also the venue for the Celtic Winter School.."celtic music for the top of the range" Their program includes daytime workshops and a few brisk tunes at night as well as a Friday night concert.

The website is for the workshop. Usually held in winter.

Finbars has a new owner Kerry...(his grandmother came from County Kerry) and very hospitable he is too...2013)
