This a great place for everything you need and if you don't need anything it's a great place to feast on the energy. It's clean and safe and rich in history. Head this way!

The must visit Street. So much going on. Pubs,music, restaurants, Street entertainment, shop's and if your a people watcher this is just perfect. With so much going on,I recommend you take a walk up and down first. Definitely something for everyone. Probably not the best place for children at night.

Plenty of good pubs, restaurants, street musicians and night life. A smaller version of Temple Bar in Dublin but only 10% tourist instead of 90%. I traveled to Ireland to soak up the local culture and this area is where to do it.

Quay street is full of bars and bustling with life. A great place to enjoy live music both day and night.

Busy!! Have to say I prefer Quay Street during the day to night as there were loads of street entertainers and a lot nicer atmosphere. Better on a Friday night to Saturday Super casual so dont bother dressing up

The heart of it all if maybe a bit touristy. Plenty of place to choose from to eat, a pub, and shop all while you stroll.
