Pub Life: Irish Folk Music

One of my favorite parts of visiting Ireland was the music. I knew ahead of time that the pubs were famous for playing fun fast paced melodies, and the two above, Merchants Arch and Gogarty were my favorite. We went to a few other bars that had musicians, but they played a lot of American covers. While they were still talented and fun to listen to, I enjoyed the musicians that combined favorite covers (like U2) with traditional Irish folk songs.
