My mom and I ducked in out of the rain and settled ourselves at a nice dim section of the bar. The atmosphere at Kevin Barry's is delightfully dark and cozy. In fact, I think the woodwork is just about the right brown to match the lovely pints of Guinness that flow from behind the bar. Equally lovely Irish music flows from the speakers throughout the afternoon, but at night, the real entertainment begins. Live musicians perform every evening beginning at 8:30pm. I have had the good fortune in the past to be present at those times, and I can assure you that it was great. The musicians encourage audience participation, so you're welcome to sing along with your favorite drunken ballads.
On this particular afternoon, we were way too early for the music. We did, however, still have a nice rest and a great chat over some Guinness, Irish whiskey, and my mom's vodka tonic (in an Irish pub?!?!), and after all, isn't that what it's all about?
If you get a little hungry or decide that you need a little something to counter the spirits, you can always order a nice meal. Shepherd's pie and corned beef sandwiches are favorites of mine. If you feel so inclined, you can always go home with a T-shirt too.
