Sin É

Located on Coburg Street, Sin É is a cultural marvel and one of Ireland’s finest traditional pubs. It is one of the few venues in the city with daily traditional Irish music sessions. They’ll be playing live trad music all week from 6:30pm and it’s a venue much coveted on St. Patricks day, so make sure you get in relatively early to enjoy the festivities in traditional style!
