Cleere’s Bar and Theatre in Kilkenny is celebrating 25 years of live events this year. The venue on Parliament Street, Kilkenny was opened by John and Phyl Cleereback in 1990 and has developed a strong footing in the live music scene in Kilkenny for national and international acts.
Over the years Cleere’s has played host to countless music, comedy and theatre shows with guest musicians including Christy Moore, Martin Hayes, Ray LaMontagne, Micah P Hinson, The Thrills, James Vincent McMorrow, Frankie Gavin and Damien Dempsey among many more. Its dedication to live music was shown last year when it picked up an IMRO Live Music Venue Award for Rest of Leinster.
