Well they have the DeBarras Folk Club on Postcards. Enough said!! Maybe not everyone’s cup of tea. Dark, old, and a thousand face masks looking at you - just the right set-up to become one of the world most famous Irish dive bar’s. Must visit!

If you want the craic with friendly attentive service and great music any day of the week then DeBarras is the place to go in Clon. The Guinness is superb and the simple food is fresh and tasty.

This pub has fantastic atmosphere, popped in for a drink, to be told there would be a good live band later that evening. Returned after dinner, so happy we did, the music was fantastic and the patrons even better.
