Weeknights are much calmer than weekends. George street has a lively vibe and hosts locals and visitors of all ages. You can get screeched in easily for about $25 at several bars. Some charge cover, some do not. I highly recommend visiting Christians Pub (and getting screeched in there) as well as the Shamrock pub. I felt very safe even into the late hours of the night. Lots of live music. The street is closed off to traffic. Relatively clean, quite a few homeless begging for change. COVID-19: some locations were taking contact info for contact tracing, some had staff wearing masks, others had no masks and no social distancing whatsoever. It varied by the bar.

Great street! It has it all for a good time on The Rock. Some of the pubs don't have great food though... some of them do but there are more pubs with bad food than great food. I highly recommend eating BEFORE heading out there... there are plenty of other options around town.
