The Market Nite Club in Denmark Street is a club for those of us who donýt like the hustle and bustle of the Icon. The Market is the type of club you feel instantly relaxed once entering. The main dance floor is a medium affair and is surrounded by a raised walkway and two main bars. Frequent promotions make sure this club is filled by not just LIT but UL and MaryI as well. Music here is much like the Icon but often steers clear of some of Pops more annoying hits.
The Sin Bin underneath CLohessey's (Peter Clohessey former Irish Internation rugby player and Limerick hero) bar is another Limerick venue to take a picture out of Docs book to give a Pub and Club Combination. The Nightclub is an elongated shape with a long dance floor and two main bars. The crowd are often of the rugby set (no idea why). The music is always top notch and is perhaps one of Limericks most underrated venues. It suffers slightly from location but is perfect for those of us who want to avoid the take away and get a cab home. Definitely a place to spend a good night even better if there is a big match on.
The Bank is situated at the top of O'Connell street. It gets its name from the buildings history, it was once a bank.
The pub itself is beautifully decorated with lots of interesting banking memorabilia.
Dress Code: Smart
Symth's Bar and Club Icon are open 7 nights a week and always attract a good crowd.
Symth's Bar is probably the biggest pub in Limerick and Club Icon has just got a face lift, so its definatly a place you should check out.

This shopping centre houses Limerick's largest and most modern movie theatre; the latter however is a moot point lol. We have been there three times. The first time was ok (disregarding the terrible smell), the second time was the best actually and the last time was just ridiculous: we had to watch Terminator 3 in a room for less than 50 people and the screen wasn't much bigger than an ordinary TV screen lol (ok, I'm exaggerating a bit when it comes to the seize of the screen, but still,.....)
Oh, by the way, there's also a movie theatre in the city centre but I only heard negative things about it.
When going to the pub ( as you must do in Ireland!!) go away from the mainstreet, the best pubs are in the small alleyways with humble looking entrances. There you´ll find locals instead of tourists. Also do an irish lunch and go for a guinnes in a lunch-hour. It´s a different atmosphere.
Ok, if you want to meet young and crazy 20somethings for a drink or more ;-) .... you have *got* to go to The Sinbin.
If you cannot pull in The Sinbin, then there is truly no hope for you. ;-)
Adm is €12, which is steep enough. Open til 3am. Plays the usual chart/dance/mosh stuff.
Dress Code: Make an effort....girls, slap on the fake tan, do your hair and make-up and dont forget your wonderbra ...or your toothbrush (if you're lucky...)
Try Doolin or Ennis for trad Irish music and a great evening's entertainment. O'Connor's pub or McGann's in Doolin both attract good crowds. Ciaran's Bar or Cruises in Ennis are alive with music in the evening.
Busy pub on the corner of Sarsfield street and henry street. Mostly locals here but popular watering hole after a big match with that team in Red!
Dress Code: Casual.
Trinity Rooms is the coolest nightclub in town, it's very slick and funky. You get a lot of minor UK celebrities coming over to the club.
