“A deeper venture into Galway...”
Reviewed 6 May 2009

An absolute must if you want to experience the region. Tasty pints and fantastic music is the best way to spend the hours after 10pm on Wed. Nearly a year on, I still remember all the details; the passion and talent of the musicians. Even the locals add the the mix. I find myself trying out some of the local places near home to catch even a glimpse of what I felt listening that night. Absolute magic.
