Gig Guide

The Mariner, home to the BarrelHouse Sessions 2017. Over the last number of years we have hosted some great acts including  Liam O' Maonlaoi , Cathy Davy , Don Baker , Eric Bell, John Spillane, Nicole Maguire, Damien Dempsey, Luka Bloom and  more recently Declan O Rourke, Hermitage Green, Kris Drever and The Original Rudeboys . It has also become home to local musicians where we have live music every Friday and Saturday night during the winter months, and four nights a week during the summer months.

The Barrel House Sessions was launched in November 2016 following the refurbishment of the venue. In December we launched our support act slot, these sets give upcoming musicians an opportunity to take to the mic and showcase their musical abilities, they act as incubators for local talent.
