In the family since 1904, the tradition of music in Shanley’s began when Moss and Phil took the helm in 1979.

Drawing on a wealth of local talent centered around Moss on the piano, music became a highlight and integral part of a night out in Shanley’s. Through involvement in local events like The Pub Talent Competition and the Busking Festival, Shanley’s became a key player in cultivating and supporting the music scene in Clonakilty which still continues to thrive today.
Their son Bill’s success as a guitarist internationally has brought more widely known performers to Shanley’s, see our Gallery page for photos of some great music nights down through the years.
Shanley’s has played host to a variety of celebrations from birthday and engagement parties, wedding celebrations and retirements to album launches. From street parties to classical concerts in our beer garden many happy times have been enjoyed here and many many more to come…
