The Roisin Dubh is internationally renowned as a live music venue. The Frames, and The Handsome Family have all played acoustic sets here, as have various emerging singer/songwriters. Also known as Galway's top comedy venue, the Roisin Dubh has featured top acts like Stewart Lee and Rich Hall. The Galway Comedy Festival draws both local and tourist crowds to the city, and is hosted here. The venue is intimate and atmospheric with good acoustics, and people crowd cozily into the wooden tables and booths. The outer bar is cozy and warm, ideal on a wet winter night. A fire usually blazes just inside the door, and the bar staff are quirky but usually friendly.
