Kids in Doolin pub for the music

We will be staying in Doolin for two nights next week, mainly because we'd like to experience some of the traditional music. Where we live (Japan) most "pubs" (our local equivalent restaurant/bars that have live music) will generally allow supervised children with their parents. I am hoping that this is true of Doolin as well. Our daughter loves music, dance, and understands the concept of being in an adult space.

Can anyone tell us whether she will be welcome during the music? Also any recommendations as to which pubs, times the music starts (and best times to arrive). We will be there on a Wednesday and Thursday evening, so hoping for slightly smaller crowds. Our Air B&B seems to be a twenty minute walk from McGanns and McDermotts and half an hour from Gus O'Connors.

Thanks much.

I do not suggest Temple Bar in the evening, even if children are allowed. There are many drunk tourists.:-(

Only just came across your post now. Delighted you had a great time in Doolin and that your daughter was able to experience our music pubs with you.
