DeBarras Folk Club, Clonakilty

4.8
#1 of 7 in Nightlife in Clonakilty
"It is the presence of an unlikely musical venue that makes Clonakilty truly special however, to cross the well worn threshold of the shy and rather retiring de Barras Folk Club, is to enter into a world full of possibilities. The possibility that anyone, literally anyone, might ramble in of the street and do a few tunes."

Mark Mc Devitt, (Irish Examiner 2000)

"There’s Carnegie Hall, The Royal Albert, Sydney Opera House and then there’s De Barra's," - Christy Moore, (August 2003)

'There probably isn't a better, more comfortable, more 'feel like you're in your own living room' gig in the country. Long may you run.' - Declan Sinnott (October 2013)

''All music is 'Folk' Music, I 'aint never heard a horse sing a song!'

Louis Armstrong

  • Having visited in 2017, we returned last Monday night, to a impromptu group of musicians, (and amazing dog with so much character). The evening was magical, the musicians were traditional, and inclusive. A young man called Ben asked if he join, and played the fiddle with them. I wanted time to stand still. Thank you De Barra's hope one day to return. Gill
  • I'm visiting the town and stopped by for a pint on a fair day. It's a very interesting old bar with a definite music theme. I'm told David Bowie played here. Friendly and efficient staff there are actually a couple of bars here, and a somewhat isolated room for several with a table as well. Great place for a pint in Clonikilty.
