The Rusty Mackerel, Teelin, Co. Dhún na nGall ~ Sunday afternoon

“Another traditional Irish pub in the Gaeltacht, this time in the Teelin area of Donegal which is a favoured spot of fishing enthusiasts throughout the country, the pub formerly known as Cuil an Duin has a rich and varied musical history. Once owned by Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, a member of one of Ireland’s most famous folk acts Altan. The pub has continued in a rich musical form with its traditional Irish music sessions bringing in visitors from the length and breadth of the country.”

The Sunday afternoon of the annual festivities in Meenacreevy, June 1st ~ a good turnout, good spirits, a good session. The year before a nice little gathering on a Tuesday night, but this doesn’t seem to be ‘regular’…

The Rusry session is on Sunday afternoons from 4-7pm.

This must be one of the first regular sessions in Donegal starting again post-covid. Currently runs every Sunday from 17.00, but be sure to check the pub’s Facebook page. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere, great fiddle player. Guinness zero on ‘tap’, which is a boon if you’re driving.
