Ireland has long enjoyed a special relationship with live music. That's why, as part of a special feature, we're celebrating the venues that provide a crucial platform for Irish and international acts to share their music with gig-goers right across the country. Next up, we're heading to Kildare...
JUDGE ROY BEANS
1 Edward St, Newbridge, Co. Kildare
Tel: (045) 438 077
Judge Roy Beans isn’t only an award-winning steakhouse and bar – it’s also an acclaimed music venue, and has provided a space for artists to rehearse and record in since 2011. Their spectacular Upstairs venue has played host to both stand-alone gigs and special series, such as their acclaimed Summer of Music programme, which kept the spirit of live music alive through recorded performances when Covid-19 restrictions prevented audiences from attending.
Located in the heart of Newbridge, Judge Roy Beans has welcomed some of the biggest names in Irish music, as well as hosting brilliant tribute nights.
Recent gigs: Paddy Casey, The Druids, Mack Fleetwood
Upcoming gigs: George Murphy & The Rising Sons (March 18), Smash Hits (March 19), Damien Dempsey (May 20)
