Róisín Dubh Iconic music and comedy venue

Róisín Dubh is undoubtedly one of the best music and comedy venues in the country, bringing established talent to the city, while also providing a stage for emerging artists. With a great atmosphere, wonderful staff, and a real commitment and passion to music and comedy, it’s one of the best places to see the best national and international acts around.
Róisín Dubh has long been the home of comedy in Galway. Many great acts including Stewart Lee, Phill Jupitus & Rich Hall, list it as being one of their top 10 venues in the world.

Roisin Dubh is also the driving force behind the Galway Comedy Festival.

For over 12 years, Strange Brew has been running on Thursday nights. One of Ireland’s longest running club nights, it has been instrumental in providing a stage to the more alternative spectrum of artists that would not have a platform to play otherwise in a town where most venues prefer to take an easier, blander approach to live music. Many of the most successful alternative acts in Ireland today, such as Two Door Cinema Club, Villagers, Le Galaxie, Delorentos, Jape & And So I Watch You From Afar, all started out playing free shows at Strange Brew in Roisin Dubh on Thursday nights.

Róisín Dubh also brings a huge selection of acts to other venues, presenting music and comedy in Seapoint, Town Hall Theatre and the Black Box, as well as co promoting the Galway International Arts Festival Big Top.
