Billy Treacy & The Scope (Downstairs)

Every Saturday
Billy Treacy is a Folk singer/songwriter from Dublin's Inner City. A modern day Balladeer with contemporary story songs using traditional instruments it neatly welds the past with the present. Billy Treacy & The Scope have a contemporary approach using traditional instruments to create an overall folk and roots vibe with influences stemming from The Pogues and The Dubliners as well as legends like Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. The style is mixture of both folk and traditional and remains respectful to the past while belting them into the present with a down and dirty punk edge rather than an over-produced polished approach. The Scope are a group of musicians, some of whom regularly play with Billy while others are more transient and join in depending on the scale of the performance. They consist of Billy Treacy: Guitar & Vocals Anna Mary Donaghy: Fiddle Conor Brady: Bass Gavin Whelan: Uilleann Pipes & Whistle Jonathan Foley: Percussion & Backing Vocals Paddy Kiernan: 5 String Banjo

4 star ratingGreat place for pints Out of all the bars in Dublin this one was also great. They serve nice pints and let you try new tastes for free.

Good atmosphere to have a few with friends.

5 star ratingBest bar in Dublin Came in here for a drink the first night we got in to Dublin. We was greeted by a lovely bar maid called Olivia. We only planed to stay for the 1 and then ended up staying to watch the comedy which was really good and very funny.

5 star ratingIf you're looking for old school charm it's here! Great pub, drinks are good, staff are friendly and prompt and there is an amazing atmosphere. This pub has retained its old school charm despite being surrounded by 'modern' Dublin.
