I absolutely adore the incredibly rich music scene of Dublin. You can find talented musicians playing in pubs, restaurants, cafeterias or even on a street corner – every day of the week and very often their gigs are free of charge (make sure they are not thirsty though, it’s very much appreciated in Dublin). One of my all-time favourites is Berlin D2 pub on the main road (Dame Street). Every Wednesday, musicians from all over Dublin are coming to Berlin to jam together and everyone is welcome. Singers, rappers, guitarists, drummers, basically whatever your jam in music is, you can share it here. Most of the instruments are already in the place so all you need to do is show up (free in) and entertain or be entertained by free-flow jamming magic.
Not many people know that if you perform even for a short time, you will get a token for a discounted pint, so make sure you claim yours if you decide to perform.
There is also a secret smoking area on the backline that adds to the magic of the place.
