Leo’s Tavern, in Meenaleck, Crolly, Co. Donegal, Ireland

Hi;

I will be traveling in Ireland this June. My guide books sing the praises of Leo’s Tavern, in Meenaleck, Crolly, Co. Donegal, Ireland. But this site has no listing for any session there. Can anyone comment?

Hi, Alexander.
Yeah I thought of that, although I didn’t mention it. Their website has been down for a few days. ("Leos Tavern website is Undergoing Maintenance").
Well, I have plenty of time. Maybe they will get their site back up. It’s just that I booked an AirBnb place that is fairly close to Leo’s. And not so close to the other session sites that are listed on this website.

Anyway, thanks for the response. Maybe someone from Leo’s will see this post.
I wonder if they know their website is down…

Slainté,
Dennis

We visited leo’s tavern on a cruise last year. leo is Enya’s father, others of the family work there. we had a brief "concert" with dancing, music and singing - good music but very tourist orientated. Not sure what they have in the way of proper sessions.

Leo’s has always been a bar aimed at tourists. Leo and his wife Baba aren’t just the parents of Enya, but of three of the members of Clannad too. Leo’s is one of the best places to eat in the area, though Teac Jack’s in Annagry isn’t bad.

There have been sporadic attempts at running sessions in the pub over the years, but, AFAIK, not of them ever really succeeded. The Leo’s Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/leostavern/ - is probably worth watching.

However, if you’ve booked a B&B, Dennis, you really aren’t that far away from this place - https://thesession.org/sessions/2476.
