Dolan’s Pub in Limerick is famous worldwide for its nightly Irish Traditional Music Sessions.

We have Free Live Traditional Irish Music sessions in the bar 7 days a week all year round.The music starts at 9pm (Sunday to Thursday) and 9.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

Dolans opened the same year as The Irish World Academy of Music & Dance at The University of Limerick. We have strong connections with the music students in the University.

Bands such as Beoga, Four Winds, Goitse, Moxie and Liadan have played in the sessions, sometimes after playing gigs upstairs or in the Warehouse.

Martin Hayes, Sharon Shannon, The Dunne Family, Karen Hickey, The Daly Family, The Lyons Family, The Clohessy Family, to mention a few, are all regular visitors to the Traditional Irish nights.

During the summer nights, let yourself be entertained in the very laid-back, warm and comfortable, candlelight setting of Dolan’s Bar with some old and new Irish ballads and stories brought to you by singers and musicians.

With a vast range of musicians in the area, the content and variety of the sessions are subject to change from one night to the next.

So join us at Dolan’s Bar Limerick, Monday to Sunday night, to sit back, have a drink and some fabulous home made Irish cuisine, relax and enjoy some of the finest musicians and entertainment Limerick city has to offer!
