We went to Conneely's several times to take in the musical guests each night. There were banjo players, fiddle players, guitarists, a gentleman playing a drum and the spoons! Wonderful, wonderful times here. The music was great and contagious! You just can't sit still! :)

We walked in from Abbeyglen & decided upon this one based on menu outside alone. 2 guys were playing trad music & the food was quite good. Waiter was awesome with local stories & advice for trip.
