We like to think that an evening spent at O'Donoghue's is an experience that stays with you. A favourite haunt for Dubliners and tourists from every corner of the world, who come to share the authentic character of one of Dublin's oldest bars, and to admire the artistry of real Irish musicians.
At O'Donoghue's the music is live. Seven nights a week, musicians from all over Ireland come together to share their love of Irish traditional music in one of Ireland's most famous bars.
O'Donoghue's has a rich heritage and stands on a very historical site in Dublin City. Yet it's more modern musical history is really the stuff of legends. Ask any Irish man to name the artists or bands that have shaped Irish traditional and contemporary music and The name of the Dubliners always comes up. Christy Moore and the Dubliners have spent many a memorable night entertaining Dublin's music lovers in our bar. It is this spirit that is kept alive by today's musicians who play amongst an array of drawings and photos of Irish musicians that adorn the walls of O'Donoghue's.
Rugby At O'Donoghue's As a favourite meeting place on rugby weekends when Ireland welcomes fellow rugby lovers from England Scotland Wales France and Italy, annually for the Six Nations Tournament, and on those very special times when the Southern Hemisphere teams and their fellow country men are Dublin's guests, the atmosphere at O'Donoghue's has to be seen to be believed.
