Lots of quaint shops, pubs and restaurants to make your visit a great experience. Went here looking for lunch when we were on a tour and were on our own for lunch. Friendly people.

Pub (P O'Donnel's) was outstanding fun and great music. No food. Area was a bit unsettling after dark.

Hit a number of Pubs on Waterloo Street, all with very different entertainment. From traditional Irish to popular music. All provided a great atmosphere and a fun night out - didnt think the bars would very close down for the night!

They've now turned it it more or less into a Pedestrian precinct. Bollards stop any car travel up or down it

Choose a Saturday night for a busier experience. Go through the bars working your way through Traceys Bar, Gwedore, Padaers and Masons. Many eateries along your way.
