Whelans

25 Wexford St.
Dublin, Ireland
TEL: 353 1 478-0766

The thumping heart of the Irish indie-music scene, Whelan’s is where you’ll find local heroes like Mundy, David Kitt, and Glen Hansard rubbing shoulders with students and earnest wannabe singer-songwriters at the cramped wood-paneled bar. There’s live music here seven nights a week, and you can be sure you’ll see someone good: the small stage is a well-established stop for international alt-country, folk, and indie acts. The sight lines are limited here, though—so it pays to show up early.
