Came across Tig Coili on a Tuesday night with not a lot else going on nearby. Pretty busy place with cool scenery and live music. Not a huge place though so be prepared to squeeze in if it’s busy.

Very comforting to find a music session going on here several times during the week. The evening sessions are super crowded. Be prepared to stand, shoulder to shoulder, for most of your time here! The music is amazing though, so I love visiting this pub.
