Non-Stop Comedy at The International Bar

Did you know one of our venues, The International Bar, also doubles as a comedy venue all week long? It's hosted some very well known comedians and helped launch many of their careers. Famous acts such as John Bishop, Kevin Bridges, Ardal O'Hanlon, and even Zack Galifianakis started their careers here. 

Every Monday, Comedy Improv invites the audience to guide the show with their suggestions (Think, 'Whose Line is it Anyways?') and includes some names you might recognise from the telly. The show has traveled around the world and has had 2 seasons as a radio show on RTE. 

The Comedy Cellar has some top class comedians that have been practicing and testing their material at this venue since the 80s. Great place to catch some big names and grab a pint with friends during the week.

From Thursday to Sunday, The International Comedy Club offers one or two shows per evening. Call in to see new up and coming comedians or a seasoned professionals from the International comedy stage. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online here for the late show on Saturdays. 


Be it your first time going to a comedy show, or your preferred weekend entertainment, this venue has it all! Make sure to get there early to get a good seat... maybe one not too close to the stage!
