It’s only a short five minute walk from the famous Dublin landmark, The Spire on O’Connell Street.
The menu offers an excellent choice of beers and cocktails and you can take time to sit upstairs in the Gallery and have a great view of the windows, organ and the trendy bar with all the activity going on downstairs. They also offer traditional music and dancing on various nights.
Darkey Kelly’s Bar & Restaurant
Located in one of the oldest parts of the city at 19 Fishamble Street, this pub is best-known for its traditional Irish music.
The name comes from the legendry Darkey Kelly, a woman who was burned at the stake for witchcraft – later proved to be false!
Fishamble Street is one of the oldest streets in the city also. Handel’s ‘Messiah’ was first performed here in 1742 and every year, on the 13th of April, ‘Messiah’ is performed free of charge to the public. So it’s a place stepped in musical history.
