Irish pub band plays traditional music that rocks the crowd

February 9th, 2021

Some nights, all we wanted to do after a hard day at work is a cold pint with our friends while listening to good music. Pubs are the way to go if you have this kind of mood, and there is a perfect pub where it checks everything on your list.

How every evening goes at Limerick.

Every time the night comes at Limerick, Ireland, there is a jolly pub down at Dock Road where people come in and come out happy. Once you enter the pub, you would be welcomed with the sound of the clanging pints as well as the pleasant sound of music coming from the pub’s stage. The place is brimming with customers and each would be occupied in drinking their favorite drink at the bar while enjoying the music. If you want to spend your evening somewhere in Limerick, this would be the best place to go to.

Grab a pint at Dolan’s while listening to good music.

Some may have probably heard about Dolan’s pub already but to enlighten those who haven’t, Dolan’s pub is a famous pub in Limerick which has been known internationally as a popular music venue and where various musicians from upstarts to big stars put on a show in their small stage.

The pub overflows with customers every single night but the drinks are not the only thing that hauls them in, but also the music that fills the very place. Famous bands and celebrity musicians like Mumford & Sons, Kate Nash, and even Hozier have come to the place to play but on usual nights, they invite Irish musicians to play the classic Irish Traditional music.

In the pub, you are greeted with Irish music.

When we hear Irish music, we could probably see Renaissance era-themed images inside our heads.

However, to the Irishmen, this music is perfect for drinking and celebrations. Listen to the accordion harmonize with the violin and the flute’s sweet-sounding melodies.

They are also accompanied by a classical guitar as well as the jolly beats from the percussions, which gives the people the energy to perk up and dance. Perhaps in some nights, you could see fellow Irishmen participating in an impromptu line dance with everybody in the room.

A vlogger shared a usual evening scene of the place on the internet.

The Rambling Fiddler, a music-loving, a traveler was able to take a look at the place himself. The man was able to capture the musicians perform three Irish Traditional music namely, The Morning Dew, Cooley’s reel (or Joe Cooley’s Fancy), and The Wise Maid.

The place was built in 1994 and for more than two decades it already collected a lot of history, especially when it hosts popular musical artists to run the whole evening.

To commemorate their visit to the pub, they put up a framed picture of them on the walls so that first-time guests could indulge themselves in the rich history of the place.

It’s great to see people keeping these traditional forms of music alive—and it’s great that they can still get the crowd moving!
