The Roadside Tavern is a legendary venue for Irish music. Music has been played at the Roadside for well over a hundred years. One well-known North Clare player Mickaleen Conlon played here for all of 57 years.
Many well-known names have entertained the patrons of the Roadside down through the years to the present. They include Christy Moore, Davy Spillane, Tommy Peoples, the Fureys, Paul Dooley, Seán Tyrrell, Christy Barry, Micko Russell, Mickaleen Conlon, Sharon Shannon and many, many more. It has a particular draw for the musicians of the region; at its summer peak, there is live music seven nights a week. Young and old come by to listen, play and sing. The style and standard of the music is top class, so along with the laid-back old world atmosphere it leads to a unique and lively night out.
Traditional Music, Ballads, Song Clubs, Poetry, Sean nos dancing and even music from as far away as Nepal can be heard at the Roadside Tavern. One never knows who might just drop by to join in on the music and the craic.
