Tim Buckley was a great lover of traditional music and was often heard singing in Buckley’s Bar. Buckley’s is still at the heart of Killarney’s traditional music scene. Some of the country’s finest musicians will often drop in for an unplanned session – much to the delight of visitors. With or without music, Buckley’s is a beautiful place to sit and discuss the world. Its oak paneled walls and turf fire reflect the timelessness of a good Irish pub.
