Live Music in Dublin
From inspiring international artists through to waxing lyrical, Dublin is one song-filled city, with bars and pubs soundtracked nightly with a whole host of genres. Whether it's jigging to Irish trad at a backstreet pub or moshing at a rock gig, we've rounded up some of Dublin's best live music spots, for when Spotify just won't cut it.
One of Dublin's rowdier spots, The Workmans Club has hosted some huge names, including the likes of Cillian Murphy on the DJ decks, and Kodaline strumming away. When it's not cranking out live music, the bar is keeping you entertained with poetry readings, comedy and much more.
If you're looking for some international talent or the latest superstar, you can start at The Academy. The Middle Abbey Street plot puts on regular gigs, with past acts ranging from cult favourites Bowling For Soup through to Indie kids You Me At Six.
