If you're looking for some old fashioned Irish pubs then this is the street for you. Easily walked to from the Richmond Shopping Centre and Quayside Shopping Centre as well as the Guildhall it is centrally located and is surely a favourite location within the city for tourists. Check it out.

Lots of shops and lots of people watching. This wide open street gives you plenty of space to walk around and listen to street performers. Time to get your shopping on

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.

There are several interesting pubs along here, and at the top views over the Bogside. The traveller must decide for them selves about the features and history of this street. It is a pedestrian area to... More

During the day this street has some interesting shops as well as cafes. At night, things change. There is no shortage of popular pubs on this street. One pub in particular, located at the top of Waterloo Street seems to be a local favorite.
