    Been here three times and every time found a new room/floor to explore. It already became my favourite bar the first time I was there. Must visit if you are into rock!

    Whelan's is probably the best small music venue in Dublin. You can find local and international acts playing there every night. And you might just meet your future wife or husband there.

    Pre-Vibe for Philo, the sound system was not very good, the speakers at the side of stage is too loud. The bands are great though,
