The "Irish" as people refer to it is a bit of an institution in my mind. Whereas other bars and clubs have gone, The Irish has always been there. Every teenage growing up in Gisborne has been here at one time or another, drinking and dancing with their friends (myself included. In fact, loads of my friends have been waters/watresses behind the bar!)
The Irish has many guises. It also has a function room which can be hired out, as well as being a pub, and a club and live music venue.
It is frequented more by the younger set on a friday and saturday night, but it's a great venue for all the rest of the time.
There is also a garden bar with BBQ's
Dress Code: No big resttrictions, but guys you won't get in with jandals/flip flops/thongs on.

Gisborne isn't huge, but like most places in New Zealand the public transport isn't up to scratch. You can walk to most places, but if you really want to get out and about, hire a car. There are loads of things to see and do in the vicinity that you wouldmiss otherwise

The East Coast of New Zealand, which is where Gisborne lies, has one of the larger percentages of Maori population. Ao you will find that many people will pepper their conversations with a few Maori words.
This is helped along by the government's drive to incorporate the Maori language into everyday life in our culture.
Here are a few words that every Kiwi knows:
Kia Ora: Hello
Taniwha: Sea Monster
Haere Mai: Welcome

Favorite thing: Gisbornes main attraction has to the sweeping sandy beaches that surround the district.
Most of the city beaches provide safe swimming but the beach is also patrolled by lifeguards to be on the safe side.
Surfing is very popular here but the best surfing spots are 'up the coast', about a 10 -15 minute drive from the city.
