I tried open mic comedy in April. Very welcoming people. Tony runs a great night and is very supportive of acts. Great upstairs room for performances and the building itself is a gem. Right in the city centre. A big plus for acts and audiences.

A fun evening of comedy. Our group of friends really enjoyed it. Also a great Dublin pub in general, with lots of character and great staff.

It is a nice place to laugh with family, friends, for couples or even alone. I recommend to everyone and if you are tourist you should go there at least once! You will enjoy for sure.
