Although I'm not a fan of Irish Bars (nor Rugby Union for that matter!), I'm sure you'll be fine in any of the many you can find in Edinburgh.

One I've been in a few times to watch sport has been Finnegans Wake on Victoria Street.

When's the Kick off ? I'm going to Scotalnd Italy on 24th, Murrayfield at 3 o'clock. Answer is most of the pubs will be showing Ireland v England, obviously outwith the 3pm-4.40pm Scotland coverage.

Enjoy the match

RE: RE: Pub for Rugby

Kick off will be at 1730 so no clashes with the earlier Scotland game. As for bars...

Sportsters in the Fruitmarket with loads of big screens.
Dropkick Murphys has a couple of big screens and is a good Irish bar as is Finnegans Wake as mentioned above.

On the New Town side, try the Candy Bar, Hudsons or the Queens Arms.

Teuchters on William street, a bit small but a great atmosphere!

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

The Graduation Ceremony

by Nemorino

The Graduation Ceremony is said to follow "time honoured traditions, some of which can be traced back to the founding of the University in 1583." These include the Academic Procession, shown in the photo, in which some of the professors and other university officials file into the hall and take their places on the stage.

As the names of the "graduands" are announced, "the Vice-Chancellor confers the degree by touching the head of the graduand with the graduation cap. Popular legend has it that the cap was originally made using the cloth from the breeches of John Knox, although other rumours attribute those breeches to the famous Scottish scholar, George Buchanan." (Quoted from the Graduation Ceremony Programme.)

The Castle Rocks

by Pixiekatten

Castle Rock is where Edinburgh began. Much damaged and often changing hands in the long and punishing wars of independence against England, Edinburgh Castle began to assume its present appearance in 1356.

In the fifteenth century King James III began using the Castle as an ordnance factory - which must have dramatically reduced its desirability as a residence! It was sacked for the last time in 1573, falling to the English after Mary Queen of Scots was brought down. (Her son, King James IV, was born in Edinburgh Castle. He later reunited the crowns of Scotland and England as James VI of Scotland and I of England.
Repaired and strengthened, the Castle became an even more formidable fortress, resisting all major assaults until 1745.

In 1753 began the construction of the esplanade, the ceremonial parade ground in front of the Castle where the Tattoo now takes place. Sixty years later the esplanade was broadened and prettified with walls and railings, the Castle's function as a fortress had ended.

The Castle remains the headquarters of the 52nd Infantry Brigade and houses several regimental headquarters. It is home to a number of military museums and contains the Scottish National War Memorial.
Members of the Royal Artillery fire the famous one O'Clock gun at Edinburgh Castle. It is Britain's second most popular tourist attraction and rises magnificently each year to the occasion of the Tattoo. All its atmosphere, power and majesty affirm that this was the proudest and mightiest fortress in the land, a residence and stronghold of kings.

Water of Leith Footpath

by clivedinburgh

This footpath runs from Balerno for 12 miles down to The Shore at Leith. I haven't walked it's entire length (just Roseburn to Botanic Gardens) but it's a great place to get away from the bustle of the city streets.

National Wallace Monument

by MalenaN

Just outside Stirling, on a hill, is a monument built in memory of the Scottish freedom fighter William Wallace (1267 – 1305). He and his men met the English army at Stirling Bridge and won a great victory. William Wallace was later betrayed and executed in London. His head was put on London Bridge and his body cut in four pieces and sent to different parts of the kingdom as a warning example.

The monument is 67 metres high and 246 steps lead up to the roof from witch it is a vast view over the surrounding landscape. As you walk up you will pass different rooms with different exhibitions. In one room you can see Wallace’s sword and listen to a doll telling the thoughts of Wallace. In another room “The Hall of Heroes” there are busts of famous Scottish people. On one level there is an exhibition of how the monument was built (it was completed in 1869).

Entrance fee is 6.00 pounds. When you pay the entrance you get a free audio guide, which will tell you many stories about William Wallace and more.

The monument is open:
Jan , Feb, Nov, Dec 10.30 – 16.00
Mar, Apr, May, Oct 10.00 – 17.00
June 10.00 – 18.00
July, Aug 9.30 – 18.30
Sept 9.30 – 17.00
