    The Old Quarter has a very classy look about it.

    It is nicely decorated both inside and out. It has seating outside and there are heaters outside for those chilly nights.

    It has live Jazz music on Thursday and Sundays.

    They also serve food in the Old Quarter.

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Dress Code: Smart / Casual

    Finn's: Best Pub in Limerick

    by RickinDutch Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Voted best new pub of the year and recommended by Jameson Guide in 2002, Finn's is really two pubs in one. On the ground floor is an upscale classic Irish pub, with a very wide selection on tap, a raised area for musicians on weekends, and a nice class of customer. There is also a mezzanine above for the overflow.
    In the basement is an old style country pub with a young crowd most nights.
    During the day, Finn's is known for great pub lunches with a wide variety of fare on the menu.

    The fact that my cousin Seamus owns the place doesn't cloud my judgement. This place is a class act.

    I just heard they sold the place in early 2007. No idea how changed it may be since then (or if it even exists anymore).

    Dress Code: A bit more upscale than most Limerick pubs.

    Nancy Blakes: Traditional Music & a Peat Fire

    by RickinDutch Written Oct 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This pub is small and intimate with local musicians playing traditional music and a peat fire going in the winter. My cousin John took us here one night because it is right next door to the alley my mother grew up on and we had worked up a thirst searching for her old house which we found out had been torn down.
    The sights, sounds and smells blended together to creat an image in my mid of what it was like here 70 years ago when my mom probably ducked in for a pint.
    About 30 people in the room and it was packed. Come early unless you don't mind standing.

    Dress Code: Dress was casual.

    Crescent Shopping Centre Limerick: Watching movies

    by Kristina1701 Written Sep 12, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

  • Smiths/Icon: Icon Limerick - Please Do Not Go

    by Euge101 Written Oct 5, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I really do not know where to start with smiths/icon in Limerick. Firstly I suppose with asking people not to attend this venue. The waiting time for a drink in smiths on a busy night is at least twenty minutes with very little bar staff present. As for the door staff, this is a different story. The required age to gain entry to Icon is 18+, however, having been refused numerous times at the age of 22 whilst sober for reasons such as (being too drunk, after driving into town and having two coffees or management reserve the right to refuse entry) I ask of you do not give the door staff the enjoyment of refusing you entry as it will only boil your blood and cause you to act irrationally. I was allowed admission into smiths recently with my girlfriend (both 22) and needed to leave to get money from a nearby atm as the one in smiths was out of order, when we returned we were greeted with management reserve the right to refuse admission. After trying to explain that we had just left to get money (to spend in yere pub/club) we were given no opportunity of getting back in. This is not the first time this has occurred and will not be the last. I ask of you, do not spend money in a venue that does not and will never appreciate your custom please...

    Dress Code: It does not matter how you dress, you will still be refused entry.

    Icon: Icon Niteclub

    by irishjon25 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    By far and away Limerick biggest Club it boasts two main clubs. The smaller of the two opening on the quieter nights and the two in combination often opening on the larger nights. The smaller club in the Icon has a medium sized dance floor with two bars. The music in both clubs is mainstream but dance, retro and slow sets are usually woven seamlessly into most nights. The larger club is a two tier affair with two bars and the dance floor on one tier and another purely bottle bar on the top tier. Much like Docs this is a combined Pub/Club affair with Smyths bar underneath the Icon. This club is fast becoming the best in Limerick and even on a quiet night has a very upbeat atmosphere.

    Bunker 4: Bunker 4 Niteclub

    by irishjon25 Written May 31, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bunker 4 situated in the basement of Au Bars is more geared towards the third and fourth years among us and is a very subdued and chilled out nite club. The club although perhaps the smallest in Limerick has a loyal following so don't be surprised to see the same crowd there every week. Music here is middle of the road and perfect for winding down after a stressful week.

    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.

This Night Club is different in that you buy / book / join on-line normally to attend. They operate a very strict joining policy for guys, but, on the upside, women generally get free admission and membership here, which makes this club! "attractive" to say the least! M/F couple and approved International guests also qualify for free membership. The best Club venue in Ireland by a mile... - bar none! Folks "I-kandi" IS Where the REAL fun in Ireland is! Amazing music, and an amazing experience, if your lucky enough to get to go!

    Dolan's: Your place for trad

    by larx Written Jun 15, 2008

    An Irish Trad bar just outside the city centre. It comprises of a restaurant/pub/music hall.
    Its one of the most touristy places in Limerick and has a good menu. There is a nightly trad music session where a few fiddlers/accordian trad guys play for free.
    Upstairs they have a few rooms where folky acoustic gigs take place (normally a cover charge applies here).
    There is also a large venue call the Warehouse next to the pub where many well known bands play their gigs i.e Aslan, The Saw Doctors, The proclaimers etc.

    Dress Code: Casual
