History of Dolan's
In December 1994, Mick and Valerie moved into Dolan’s. It was then known as The Mill Tavern. They wanted a pub with Traditional Irish Music every night so that anyone who wanted to listen or play in a session could do so any night of the week all year round. The response from local musicians was fantastic and by Paddy’s Day 1995 the place was hopping. The acoustic sessions were (and still are) great and they decided to open a bigger venue to accommodate national and international acts thus the Warehouse was opened in 1998.
The list of artists who have graced the stage speaks for itself. The Warehouse introduced Mick and Val to different musical genres – rock, comedy, jazz, blues, country, classical and of course all the other stuff that doesn’t lend itself to classification! In March 2004 they opened the Upstairs Venue. This venue is smaller and more intimate. It has played host to weddings, christenings, funerals, birthdays (various milestones!), The Limerick Jazz Society gigs and The Munster Supporters Club’s legendary shindigs. The Dolan’s have been very lucky and happy in Limerick and are grateful to all the musicians and listeners who have supported them over the years. Long may it continue..
Today Dolans is comprised of three venues, two outdoor areas, a Traditional Irish Pub and a Restaurant. We have music every night in the bar 7 nights a week and serve early morning breakfasts on Saturdays, Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays. Our venues have played host to many National and International acts including Kasabian, Franz Ferdinand, Sharon Shannon, Snow Patrol, Duffy and Imelda May.
We continue to bring the very best of music to Limerick and the Mid-west region and hope to welcome you here soon.
