Spiddal's session venues

(In alphabetical order)



An Crúiscín Lán

Spiddal's hotel, located on the main street, is a frequent venue for sessions during the summer. It usually closes for a couple of months during the winter. The Crúiscín offers a full restaurant service for most of the year. http://cruiscin.ie/




An Droighneán Donn

(formerly An Tobar)

The Droighneán Donn is a great venue for sessions, summer and winter. It is currently the home of the famous Sunday session (5.30-8pm), led by box player Steve Sweeney and friends. The Droighneán also hosts a weekly open session on Friday night from 10pm, led by fiddle player Nóra Geraghty and friends.




An Nead

While not known for being a session pub, the Nead hosts the weekly learner session (Fridays 8-9.30pm) in a cafe attached to the pub, which is accessed in the evening through the bar. Otherwise the Nead hosts sessions only during festivals and other large events.




Tigh Giblin

Bar/restaurant/music pub, Tigh Giblin has live music on most nights throughout the summer. Due largely to space restrictions the summer sessions are usually closed or limited to invited guests and their friends. A full menu is offered until 9pm. The proprietors are Ned and Brenda Giblin. Ned is himself a musician and often plays in the bar. http://www.tighgiblin.com/




Tigh Hughes

(Currently closed)

Tigh Hughes is probably the most famous music pub in Spiddal. When it is open there are sessions in Hughes's all year 'round, many of them led by melodeon player Johnny Connolly, who is always delighted to meet musicians, particularly box players. A limited pub menu is offered, but more substansial fare can be organised with a bit of notice.
