De Barra’s of Clonakilty, West Cork

Christy Moore is by no means alone when he suggests that de Barra’s is a cut above Carnegie Hall. The pub is all about music, from the flutes, fiddles and saxophones sprawled upon its walls to the purpose-built auditorium out back. But somehow de Barra’s’ retains its sense of history and still feels like an old-world grocery bar.
