Session at the Burren

An Irish music session at the Burren, a pub in Somerville, MA.

My husband and I visited there after dropping our son back to college after spring break. An empty nest again...
Very cool shot. I have been to Somerville, but not this pub. My husband spent a year in a fellowship at Tufts University's Fletcher School for Law and Diplomacy a few years ago. There is so many fabulous things to do and see in that area. We just couldn't see it all in 11 months.

@alyssakmac @gaylewood @lynne5477 @sarahlth @mittens Thanks for your comments. I was glad we were able to check out this place. I saw it on a list of great Irish pubs in the U.S.

@marcy0414 I didn't realize he was actually at Tufts. Very cool. Not being from the northeast, we had never heard of it until the Army sent him there for the 2013-2014 school year. He also got to go to lectures at Harvard and MIT, as well. It was a fabulous year.

@homeschoolmom That sounds like a great experience! My son has a lot of friends from high school who are going to colleges in the area. Great area, for sure.

Thought for a second there you were in County Clare when I saw The Burren. Wonderful wild area. Irish pubs are still my favourites - good humoured, good beer and good music. Nice shot of the craic.

@casablanca Thank you--I was fortunate enough to tour the Burren in Ireland with my family when my boys were young. Ireland is one of my all-time favorite places, and I would love to go back some day! This pub captured the atmosphere well with the look and the music.
