Peadar O'Donnels, the home of Live traditional & contemporary music in Derry. On our premises we have 3 different bars – Peadar O’Donnells, the Gweedore Bar and Gweedore Upstairs. Peadars is known throughout the world and is a must visit location for the many tourists that flock to Derry in ever increasing numbers. We are famous for, among other things, our live music which is largely organised but has regular impromptu sessions from either local musicians or visiting performers. Whichever of our bars you would like to visit, you are guaranteed a warm welcome, a good time and the best pint of Guinness in Derry!

Amazing Trad Irish Music Venue

Guaranteed live Irish music every night - three different sessions at week-ends apparently. Brilliant. A must visit while in Derry.

Went for a few pints and some live music last evening... Great pub! Started with Irish music... Then it seems like they have a few bands/groups during the course of the evening... Irish music restarted at 2330h till close... Lots of locals... Small busy place... As an FYI-- they do not serve food...

We stayed in Derry for two nights and ended up in Peadars on both nights. There's a great buzz about the place and a mix of all ages and nationalities. The traditional music was great and we really enjoyed both nights.

Had a fun night listening to Irish music and drinking Guinness - what's not to like! We thought they were playing the music but it turned out the live band at the front of the Bar! No wonder it was such good music!

Enjoyed a couple evenings here after golf. A few pints along with great music starting at 10:30. Sat right in front of the musicians and was able to interact and listen while enjoying our beer.

I think I was every night during my stay in Derry! It's like time stopped here, and there is also traditional music every night. It's a good mix of locals and tourists. We had so much fun every time we were there! I add a perfect pint of Guinness too!

This neighborhood bar was a very nice, quieter place to stop for a pint after some touring. The bar tender was great to talk with, the people in the bar were respectful and quiet. The hangings on the bar's walls and ceiling added to the atmosphere. They had a large selection of the regular commercial beers. Heard they had great... More
