Further afield of other pubs listed here—it’s in Somerville, at the Davis stop on the T’s Red Line, two stops after Harvard—the Burren is a top spot in Boston area for Irish music. The front bar has music every evening as well as weekend afternoons, and a larger back room is busy every evening as well, hosting either larger music events or, on quiet nights, programs like trivia and comedy. It’s family-friendly and always a good scene.
