Glen Tavern

A mecca for all into the donegal fiddle style. the residents there are the famous Campbells so you can see why ! they are allways very friendly to everyone, allthough be prepared to have to give a solo! there is allways a great variety and a very much equall mix of tunes, songs, recitations, poems and dancing if there is room, it encompasses everything in the tradition. allways a very enjoyable night, only one problem, its in the middle of the mountains! a few miles from glenties. if your not from the area, perhaps you should get someone to show you were it is.

Great session

This session is still going strong but quite unlike any other session as you’ll be expected to do a number of solo pieces. Very friendly and unusual tunes. But beware the tunes do not start until at least 10.30 pm and it was after 11.30pm on the night I was there!

Just a note that this pub isn’t actually in Glenties, but in Greenans some three miles from the town up the R253 to Ballybofey.
