Knox's Bar: A few Beers
Located on Abby street. You cannot miss this place. Doesn't look much from the outside but it is usually packed on weekend nights with the 20-35 age group. Based on two levels with a good restaurant on the third floor. Don't expect to get a seat anythime after 9pm. A good place for people watching and also popular place for watching live sporting events on the big screen. Late bar licence until 2am make this an ideal spot for a few beers.
The Queens: Nightclub
If you enjoy dancing till late then this is the place for you. For all you smokers there is a large outside smoking area for you and for the rest of us to escape the heat of inside. This palce is usually packed and attracts the 16 (better say 18) to 30 year olds on weekend nights. Expect to pay €8-10 cover charge (no free drink included). Once inside you also pay inflated drink prices. So do what i do get your drinking out of the way before you arrive here and then just chill and spend you time people watching and the odd fight to add to the excitment.
Dress Code: No suits you will look a bit out of place. No combat pants or sneekers that about it. A word of warning hang your jacket or bag up in the booths for €1 otherwise expect it to "go missing" this is a warning from experience not once but three times it has happened to me.
If you look young you will be stopped for ID before you enter.
Woody's: A pint and a chat at Woodys
This place is one of the newer bar in town less than a year old although there was a bar here before it the new owner Ronan Woods (hence the name Woodies) had tried to change the image and profile of the bar and its clients to make it more appealing to customers. A good place for a quite pint and a chat during the day and even at night you will usually get a seat for yourself. Flat screen TV for all the sporting fixtures. A good place to get tips on horses from the regulars. A chilled out atmosphere. If you need to know something about the town, travel or Ireland somebody in this place will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
Tell Ronan, Shane recommended the place to you and you will be looked after.
So drop in and sample a good old Irish pint and get away from the hussle and bussle of modern Irish life for an hour or so.
Dress Code: No dress code. Its relaxed and inviting even if dropping in on your own for a pint and to read a paper or your travel guide.

Ciarans Bar: Good neighborhood pub.
Stumbled upon this pub and was very pleased. Watched the election results roll in and talked politics with some locals. I believe that I had at least seven Carlsbergs.
