The Shaskeen

909 Elm Street
Manchester, NH 03101

The Shaskeen was the creation of traditional Irish musician and pub owner, Tommy McCarthy, and world renowned flautist of the Chieftains, Matt Molloy. Bringing together the traditional Irish concepts ofpublic houses, food and music under one roof, the Shaskeen follows a lineage of grea Irish pubs established by Tommy and Matt, such as the Burren, the Skellig, and Matt Molloy's.

Today, with their over 40 years of combined restaurant and bar experience, new owners
Josh Ames,Jim Pliakos, and Nathan Sheridan strive to make sure the traditional Irish
concept stays alive,while adding modern touches to the food, beverage, and music aspects.
In doing so, the Shaskeenhas made itself into Manchester's best live music and comedy venue.
