Merry Ploughboy Pub

Awarded Ireland’s best Traditional Dinner/ Show event in 2010, 2011 and 2012, this authentic traditional Irish music, singing and dancing night is a must-see. This high energy show is suitable for all ages. A nightly shuttle bus departs the city centre from 6.30pm from stops beside O’Connell St and Trinity College (Nassau St – H/I5 on Map) plus some other central stops. In fact if you contact the pub they will find a way to get you out to the show and back again for only €5.50pp round trip fare. The pub itself dates back to the 1780s and, uniquely, is owned and run by musicians – renowned Dublin folk group The Merry Ploughboys whose performance tops and tails the 2hr show. Midway through, champion Irish dancers perform a specially commissioned show. An excellent four-course traditional Irish meal is served from 7pm. As authentic Irish nights go, this out-of-town option is hard to beat.
Open all year. €49.50pp Dinner & Show. Shuttle transfer €5.50pp round trip. Kids under 16yrs €29.70pp and free shuttle seat. Shuttle departs pub after show ends at 10.30pm. Book everything securely online, including the shuttle bus.
