impressive selection of musicians, disappointing atmosphere. Dec 17, 2010
This place is another one of Dublin's bigger contemporary music venues, and brings in a lot of international acts (buy tickets in advance, they usually sell out). It's located a little out of town (a short walk), but can be worth a visit if you like the musician who's playing.

The downside to this place, though, is that the layout really doesn't encourage much of an atmosphere. Having seen several bands play both here and in other Dublin venues, I can confidently say that the place is extremely quiet, and doesn't offer much in the way of crowd interaction most of the time. It's often fully seated, and when it isn't, becomes a bit on the 'hollow' side. Having said that, it's got a nice bar at the front and often has some interesting art work, too, so it's not all bad. Might be worth a look in the way back from the Guinness Storehouse if nothing else.
