A pub owned and run by musicians

The Merry Ploughboys Live in Concert is widely regarded as the best traditional music show in Dublin and also as a must see for any visitors to Dublin city.

The show kicks off at 8.00 pm and is a highly entertaining performance of live traditional Irish Music, Song and Irish Dancing.

From start to finish, this is a show based on fantastic interaction between the performers and the audience.
Midway through, All-Ireland and World champion Irish dancers and beyond perform a specially commissioned show

The very best of fresh Irish food is served and the entertainment is provided by Ireland's leading traditional Irish music group The Merry Ploughboys.

The Merry Ploughboys (the owners of the pub) are a traditional Irish music band who have been performing to audiences in Dublin since 1989.

This makes the Merry Ploughboys show the longest running show in Ireland hosted by the same performers for more than quarter of a century.
