We went into the Rocking Chair for a drink after dinner. The small public bar was full of every-day people singing some traditional and some not so traditional songs. We grabbed a drink and joined in the chorus. One of the barmen - Dermott - made himself known to us & looked after us like we were long time locals.... More

Waterloo Street runs from William Street up to Butcher's Gate, and you won't be stuck for a pint, if you happen to find yourself on it. It has a total of six bars, all on the right hand side as you head up it. Starting with Tracy's, Peadar O'Donnell's, The Gweedore, The Dungloe, Bound for Boston, and finally The Rocking... More

You will find some of the best musicians in the City playing in these bars here every night of the week. Keep an eye out for the trad band in Paeders and also the lads who play in the Dungloe on thursdays and Tracys on Sundays/Mondays

The street is packed with bars of all different shapes and sizes and live Irish music most nights in... More

Waterloo street is the nerve centre of night life in Derry. Situated within Derry's city centre the strret is filled with many pubs and bars, for example, The Dungloe, The Gweedore, Kate's Paedar O'Donnels, the Bound for Boston and The Rocking Chair and that's only naming a few! Every night is party night in these bars! Most are traditional Irish... More
