The busiest pubs offer every day gigs of traditional music. An unique atmosphere where customers eat, drink, laugh and chat.

Halloween


Halloween as we know it today came about from the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain over 3000 years ago. In the countryside, giant fires are lite at nightfall to protect from tricks the coming year. Pumpkins are lighted and remind Jack O'lantern legend. Dublin offers a great parade for the occasion.

The Leprechaun


The Leprechaun is a malicious character born in Irish legends. An iconic figure of Irish folklore, everybody is dressed like him during Saint Patrick's day. Green hat and ginger beard are his symbols, along with his cauldron of gold coins, which he tries to hide from the human world.

Land of mystery
