With no official guidelines in place for reopening pubs in less than a week or indeed indoor live music events, we at DeBarras feel we will not be able to responsibly open on the 20th of July.
In the meantime we continue to monitor, fret & plan with blindfolds on & our hands tied behind our back.
When we do re-open, we will do so safely & confidently with excellence & attention to detail.
Please stay tuned to our social media pages for further updates on this.
You can also continue to support live music via our virtual DeBarras shows online.
here is our next virtual offering for your approval.

In 2013 DeBarras featured in the independent documentary ‘The Irish Pub’“ which received rave reviews and went on to show in cinemas and clubhouses throughout the world. This film is a beautiful and at times melancholic ode to the dwindling family run Irish pub and features ‘distinguished contributions from the gentle Brennan sisters of Bundoran, the chatty Eugene Kavanagh from The Gravediggers in Glasnevin, and Ray and Bobby Blackwell of De Barra’s in Clonakilty.’
