George Street may not be much to look at during the day (it's actually not a very pretty spot) but at night it turns into party central with some of the city's best bars. You'll even find some quieter spots (like Bridie Molloy's) where you...More

If hustle and bustle is your thing then this is the place to enjoy it. But this Geezette prefers more sedate, quieter things to do. Am I sorry I went there? No, but once is enough for this gal.

Nice little bar street. In the fall it's best to go on a Friday or Saturday after 10pm. After school starts it becomes a lot more crowded because of the students. Many places have cover charges but not all of them do. Enjoy the street...More

If you like to socialise, enjoy a drink and love live music then just visit George Street! There are plenty of options to choose from and the atmosphere is very relaxed.

Go and "kiss the cod", enjoy the music, the food, and the beer. It is well worth an afternoon or an evening. You can take your pick of the dozens of pubs---and more than one will easily meet your expectations.

The music is usually great but you may find the odd singer who just does old cover tunes. Some of the pubs are really good, some are just average. No matter which ones you visit, the people will be friendly. I was going to give...More
