Whelan's, the holy grail of the Irish live music scene. Whether you're looking to see a young up-and-coming singer-songwriter or the hippest, on-the-cusp of Main Stage Glasto band, you know you'll find it if you make a pit-stop in Whelan's. It has a particular special place in our hearts because of the silent disco in the smoking area on Wednesday nights...even if you're pure of lung, it's reason enough to get your groove on in the hazy area.
Whelan’s live venue and bar is located on the bustling Wexford Street strip in Dublin’s city centre. The earliest definite record of a public house on this site dates from 1772 when Christopher Brady operated a licensed premises on what was then still popularly known as Kevin’s Port. The premises changed hands many times throughout history.
