The movie, titled Brendan Gleeson's Farewell to Hughes's, is about Hughes's, the pub that was situated in Smithfield, Dublin, on a side street behind the Four Courts.

Before it closed in 2021, the location was a traditional music hub for decades.

The documentary describes how, in January 2022, fiddler and Hughes's regular Gleeson got together with musicians, dancers, and singers in and around the bar for a final gathering to "recreate the magic of Hughes's."

As part of the Dublin International Film Festival (DIFF), Brendan Gleeson's Farewell to Hughes will make its premiere at the Irish Film Institute (IFI) on Friday, March 1.
