Drinks & Nightlife

Good buzz! Good Guinness! (Restaurant is quite good but if you don't have time to eat then try to make time for a Guinness or an Irish coffee and soak in the atmosphere!) Live Irish music every night.

Food Scene

JP Clarkes is good for bar food. Gallaghers (same building) is a little more formal and good for seafood (they also do a nice steak). Prices are not hugely different. Always busy so you need to book.
