So without further adieu, here are the BarWhiz picks for the Best Party Cities In Ireland:
Dublin is home to a young demographic who works hard and plays even harder. With all that disposable income at hand, Dublin has become one of the most notable cities when it comes to the nightlife scene in all of Europe. With a pub on every corner and some of the best nightclubs around, Dublin is by far the best party city in Ireland. Some party recommendations include Sweeney’s Bar on Dame Street, Whelan’s on Wexford Street, The Grand Social on Lower Liffey Street, and O’Reilly’s on Poolbeg Street.
Cork is home to a large student population, and whenever you get a large group of students together you can always find a party. Whether it’s at the local pub, club or house party, there are always some kind of events on all year round with many catering to a wide selection of music genres, including traditional Irish music. One of the most popular pubs to check out is The Oval on South Main Street, and don’t miss out on Cork’s longest running nightclub, Havana Brown’s.
A little something for everyone, Kilkenny offers a mix of modern clubs, stylish bars, and traditional old style pubs. Sure, it may be over 400 years old and contain some of the best medieval cathedrals and castles, but it’s still a party town. A great place to begin your night is Matt The Millers on John Street Lower before finishing it off on the dance floor at Lanigan’s Bar on Rose Inn Street.
Another student town, and therefore a great party city, is Galway. This university town has a reputation for it’s amazing pubs, clubs, and festivals. There is always something to do here and is quite easy to find a party that will meet everyone’s tastes. A great place to start your night off is at The King’s Head on High Street, but for the best selection of nightlife head over to the Eyer Square.
Belfast is known for its winning hospitality and thriving cultural scene, making it one of the top five Best Party Cities In Ireland. The people here are charming and welcoming, so much so that if you play your cards right you may even be invited to one of their famous ‘late night / early morning drinking parties’. To get your night started, head on over to Lavery’s Bar on Bradbury Place for a few pre-game pints.
