Whelan's review Rate it

One of the city's most prestigious venues, Whelan's has built an unassailable reputation among Dublin music fans. It's the stomping ground for most of the city's up-and-coming bands: Damien Rice, David Kitt, the Frames, Paddy Casey and Gemma Hayes all made their first appearances here. With a line-up that takes in Irish trad, English folk and American roots, this is a vital Dublin venue.
