The Thursday sessions start at 9:00pm; the Sunday sessions at 5:00pm. Be prepared for this one; the tempos are fast and the host players skillful, but the quality is excellent and it’s the default venue for visiting hot shots.

Sometimes the place is a victim of its own success. The pub, alas, is very noisy, frequently to the detriment of the music.

This is a great session… The noise level may sometimes pose as a problem, but I suppose every pub will have it’s noisy patrons.
The Sunday session goes from 5:00 onward… I’ve seen it go all night!
If you’re at the session often enough, there are all sorts of surprises.. You’ll see comedians, singers, dancers, musicians (of course), there are occasionally raffles, too.. and just when you think that the session is over, another couple of musicians come in and the music goes on for another hour!
The musicians are also friendly, and very welcoming of beginners… The music is still pretty quick-paced.

Sunday Session now on Saturday

That about sums it up.

Re: Dora Keogh

Still three sessions a week (as of August, 2018).
