Whelan's is recognised as Dublin's original live music venue. It has been a foundation stone in the development of Dublin as an international capital of modern music. The building also has a very rich history. Over the years many famous names and faces have performed on its stage, often inspired by memorable and still talked about shows, as Whelan’s brings out the best in its performers, whether they are a young band in their early days, or a more seasoned and celebrated act. The versatility and warmth of Whelan’s as a venue also means it is the location for more than just rock and folk shows, with many other clients using its supreme facilities for a wide variety of events.
