Nightlife in Ireland

Ireland's nightlife is world-renowned. From cosy country pubs to lively city nightclubs and cafes, there is something for everyone here. The pub is still the centre of the Irish nightlife and is a great place for talking, meeting people, catching up on some local gossip, eating, drinking and generally having a good time.

Traditional pubs are still the most common type in the country with the basic pleasures of good beer, good conversation and few frills. Local musicians often play at such places so if that's what you're after it's usually worth asking round.

The larger towns and cities also have more modern / cosmopolitan type places including some continental-style cafe-bars, disco-bars and of course nightclubs. Dublin, with its young working population has probably one of the most eventful nightlife scenes in Europe. In other cities such as Belfast, Galway and Cork with their young student populations there are always music events on all year round.
