Established almost two centuries ago on Douglas Street, Coughlans is a pub steeped in history, unspoiled and untarnished by the passage of time. It is a pub that is held fondly in the hearts of its regular patrons and new visitors alike.Within the pub, there is a section that plays host to a flurry of different musicians for your amusement. This small intimate music venue will be available to musicians to put on concerts/gigs in an effort to promote both new and already established acts from the city and further a field. As many of Cork’s smaller venues have unfortunately had to close their doors, we want to recreate a â€˜listening room’ and perhaps (dare we say it!) even bring back some of the magic from the days of places like â€˜The Lobby’! We want this space to be a platform for upcoming acts to showcase their material without the huge costs of hiring a venue and also a place for more established acts to come and play in a small setting, to an appreciative audience, knowing their requirements will be met to the best of our ability. It is essential to us that every performer and audience member leaves â€˜Coughlan’s Live’ wanting to come back for more. The venue has a capacity of 60 people seated (approx 70 standing). Special care has been taken to ensure an enjoyable experience for both the audience and the listener. Quality of sound, a comfortable performance space, â€˜greenroom’ and most importantly â€˜the personal touch’ are some of the things we have really concentrated on.We host a music session every Monday where some of Cork’s finest musicians gather playing many styles of music and all are welcome to join in.Every Saturday night there is free live music provided by bands such as The Calvinists, Jukebox Gypsy, The Lynch Mob, Hot Guitars, The Hank Wedel Band and many more.Over the past few months we have had many concert type gigs with some of the countries best artists including Mick Flannery, Mundy, Liam O Maonlai, Interference, Declan O Rourke and Mick Hanly with plenty more exciting shows planned for the future.
