Dublin has been home to many venues over the past 30 years. When I started going to and playing at gigs our venues were the Baggott Inn, Ivy Rooms and the legendary McGonagles for the slightly bigger affairs. It was a great sized room, 700 capacity and when it was packed it was. Real hot.

Not all the bands above played to a packed hall, some were cold but it was always buzzing. A great venue, for sure.
