- An integral part of Dublin's music, Whelan's front bar is convivial and relaxed, with an intimate music venue that's the real heart of the place. It's a great spot to catch some of Dublin's better bands; there's a strong contemporary country or roots slant to a lot of the acts. On weekends, a club follows the gig so you don't have to rush home. Check the local listings for what's on, and tip your hat to the eerily lifelike sculpture at the bar.
