Almost any night of the week you should be able to find live music somewhere, usually starting around 9pm. House performers might start earlier. More popular acts will have a cover charge.

Wow fun after dark. Where throwaway shoes as you will find some wild things in the street. Lots of bars, cold beer and wings at good prices. Kind of fun to find slot machines in almost every place. Party atmosphere.

George street is a nice area to stroll along and enjoy the many unique pubs and clubs. In the summer time, it is nice to enjoy a meal on one of the restaurant decks. Lots of nice Irish music and dancing.

It's the street with all the bars to spend a nice evening, a lot of life music and good atmosphere. The down side is that they charge an entrance fee almost every avening !

Where else can you go any night of the week and have talented musicians playing in quaint pubs with good pub grub and great service. Make sure you come when there are some festivals going on. Easy walk or cabs from everywhere…lots of cabs available when you stagger out at 3am!

Apparently George Street has more pubs and clubs than almost any other street in the world. Almost all have live music on weekends, there is a real party atmosphere, a great night out!
