An exuberant live show of traditional music and dancing accompanies dinner at this hugely popular pub in Rathfarnham, one of Dublin’s farther-flung southern suburbs. Admittedly it’s all very touristy, but you certainly get your money’s worth—the show runs for 2 hours, and the menu, while limited, is actually pretty good. Expect plates of beef braised in Guinness and served with roasted root vegetables, or scampi cooked in tempura batter, served with chips (thick fries). The only real drawback is the time it takes to get here (Rathfarnham is about 6km/3[bf]3/4 miles from the city center), although a dedicated minibus will deliver you there and back to the city for a bargain round-trip price of €9.
