Ireland House is bringing the spirit of the Emerald Isle to this London bar, and the Irish House will be rocking every night with traditional Irish entertainment at this London 2012 Olympic attraction. We will be live-blogging from Ireland House, plus we’ve got all the essential information for you to plan your visit below:
Friday, 3 August
17:40 The live music is about to start with Karl Levelle & friends from Dublin. This will be followed at 9pm by Hungry Grass, who are an Irish country & folk band. Promises to be an exciting night!
17:20 Starting to get a bit busier at the Irish House, as they prepare for another night of good music and drinking. With the weekend upon us, there should be plenty of people coming in for a refreshing drink, so get yourself down before it gets too crowded. It’s £5 entry, but after that there’s very reasonable beer prices: Amstel (pint) £3.95, Murphys (pint) £3.95, Symonds Cider (pint) £3.95, Savanna Cider £3.95
Monday, 30 July
17:25 If you’re looking for a pub experience to enjoy the Olympics then the Irish House is a good bet. The Irish certainly know how to entertain when it comes to pubbing! Though, amazingly, there is no Guiness on tap! So sorry, my Irish friends, you’ll have to settle for Murphys – it tastes pretty good though! If you’re a ‘Father Ted’ fan then you’ll enjoy the bottom floor that has been re-shaped into the great man’s living room, minus the flat screen TV showing the Games.
There will be plenty of music tonight, as always, at the Irish House. I’ve been informed that Derek Warfield and the Young Wolvetones, who are on from 9 to 11pm, come highly recommended. They played yesterday and put on a real show, so get yourself down for 9pm. The night will finish from 11pm to 2am with a DJ set by Arveene and famous Eno.
