I will be in Dublin for the first 10 days of September this year and will be staying in Santry. I'm looking for some good places for ceol and craic while I'm there. I'm in my mid-forties and looking for places not overrun with "wee 'lns" or too loud or full of my cousins from this side of the Atlantic. Both traditional and ballad sessions are fine. Should I have any concerns about going into a random pub on the Northside? Flinglas East? Ballymun? Don't limit yourself to Dublin North as anywhere Dublin Bus or the DART runs is fine.
