Merry Ploughboy

Merry Ploughboy Pub
Just 20mins south of the city centre is a must-see night of authentic traditional Irish music, singing and dancing regarded as one of the best around. The pub itself dates back to the 1780s and, uniquely, is owned and run by traditional musicians - the eponymous Merry Ploughboys whose performance tops and tails the 2hr show. As authentic entertainment goes, this out-of-town option is hard to beat. In fact, it's the city's longest running night of its kind - and by the same performers... making reservations is a must. Find it off the M50 ringroad (exit 12 at the Firhouse/Ballyboden turn). Xpert Taxis, in conjunction with the pub, offers 20% off all fares to and from the pub from any location, Call at +353 (0)1 667 0777.
