If you are like me, one of the things you were looking forward to most when it came to visiting Ireland was listening to traditional (“trad”) music in a local pub.
When we arrived in Galway one of the first things we did that evening was go to a pub and listen to trad music. Here are two places you should visit if you want to have a great experience:
Located right in the middle of the Latin Quarter, the trad music will lure you in as you walk up and down the beautiful narrow streets.
The Crane Bar
Located on the other side of the River Corrib is The Crane Bar. This was a pleasant hole-in-the-wall Irish pub that had a great trad band playing.
