Music & Events

For the Record..

"The venue, a whimsical cross between a beautifully restored Irish church and Spanish Tapas Bar, provides the perfect setting for the night’s entertainment. With its intimate size and closeness of the stage it hard not to be absorbed by the live performance." - Keelan Foley (Award Winning Music Blogger)

Great acoustics in this atmospheric setting means Sol y Sombra is an ideal environment to enjoy live music.

We have had many great acts over the years including Bell X1, Lisa Hannigan, Juliet Turner, Mundy, Declan O’Rourke, Hermitage Green, Walking on Cars, Jack Lukeman and more...

With some concerts we can offer a whole evening of entertainment with our special 3 course concert menu  followed by an intimate concert in our unique old church setting (concert prices may vary depending on the artist). If available this will be stated in the event details.
