The Thomas House has been a safe haven for punks, rockabilly heads, ska types, lovable weirdos and everyone in between since opening its doors many years ago – which is why it is a real Hot Press favourite. A melange of locals, music heads, and students makes this dive bar the perfect place to pull up a stool and enjoy an impressive array of Irish and international pale ale, lager, stout or whatever your having yourself. It is a real haven for informed musos too. Expect alternative DJs spinning retro vinyl tracks from the 60s and 70s; or get down for some of the live rockabilly acts who are known to blow the roof off at the weekend. Imelda May is a regular and even Morrissey has been known to pop in on occasion. To top things off there’s a regular rota of events happening, including vinyl markets, quiz nights and even a home brewers tasting evening.
