Live Music Venues

Galway City is renowned for its live music scene. While nearly every Pub in Galway hosts live music at some point, many pubs have live music on a weekly and in some cases a daily basis. Most music styles can be heard somewhere if you look hard enough. In this article we have left out traditional Irish music pubs from this article because they have their own section.

The Roisin Dubh
Undisputed King of the live music scene in Galway City. Diverse range of music styles. Open until 2am nightly.

The Kings Head
Popular spot with nightly rock cover bands all week with Dj's at the weekends .

The Cellar
Two venues- Upstairs and downstairs. In the 1970's an Irish music hotspot but nowadays plays host to covers bands and many one off gigs of various styles including a regular open mic night.

“There’s something about that city,” you said. “The moment I get off the bus, I get this buzz. I've yet to have one bad out night there.”

You hailed Galway’s “great energy” as “a perfect blend between traditional Ireland and modern society”, and called it Ireland’s “culture capital”.

The city is “young, vibrant and distinctly Irish,” readers added, with “heart-warming hustle and bustle” that is “always welcoming at different times of the year.”
