Brendan Gleeson

BRENDAN GLEESON’S FAREWELL TO HUGHES’S documents a poignant reunion of musicians, dancers, and singers at the now-closed venue. Filmed over five days in January 2022, the documentary interweaves interviews with archival footage, capturing the essence and impact of Hughes’s Pub on Dublin’s traditional music scene and its cultural heritage. To some it was an unassuming pub on a side street in Dublin’s city centre. To musicians, dancers, singers and listeners, Hughes’s was a mecca of traditional Irish music for more than 35 years. After it closes its doors for the final time, actor  returns to it to commemorate its invaluable legacy.
