Peadar’s is a traditional pub with strong historic roots. The pub is named after a musician who lived in the building where the bar is located now, he composed Abhrán na BhFiann (The Irish national anthem). We continue this tradition with nightly traditional, toe tapping music. One of the regular musicians, Brian Brody, is a must see for any tourist visiting the city. He’s a one man atmosphere machine. There’s a basement bar downstairs when upstairs overflows, which also caters to sporting events including NFL games. If you’re looking for somewhere with temple bar music and atmosphere without the prices, take a look at Peadar’s

A night in Peadar Kearney’s…

Walking into local pub, Peadar Kearney’s, has the effect of transporting you to a better world. It’s not just that the smoothly flowing drinks or the traditionally decorated space evoke a kinder, gentler era—it’s the atmosphere created by the excellent musicians and staff that takes you to a time and place outside and above the normal muckabout Dublin night.

During a recent show at Peadar Kearney’s regular Musician Brian Brody revealed his ability to bring a crowd together. As a consummate storyteller, he works his guitar and his voice to tap into the primal themes of the human condition. He moves easily from traditional ballads to rousing rock—engaging the crowd in a friendly banter.“Be loud because I’m about to be!” he urges the room before he launches into a rousing rendition of The Irish Rover and the crowd roars back.

As he works the crowd, he creates a community of strangers united by his music and the warm atmosphere of the pub. During a roll-call of sorts he moves around the room calling out the countries represented in the audience:Ireland, Ireland, Ireland, America, Cezch Republic, Ireland, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Ireland, Ireland, England, Ireland. In a neighborhood where pubs can often be dominated by hordes of tourists, this time and place feels authentically Irish because it is.

“We stayed 3 days in Dublin, about 2 blocks north of Peadar Kearney’s and we visited at least once each day! The music was spot on, the folks inside were friendly, and by the end of our trip the door man knew us just when we happened to be walking by. This was the perfect casual fun spot for us to hang in during our holiday in Dublin. Thanks!”
