“carnival atmosphere”
Review of Quay Street

Quay Street

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 10, 2014

great atmosphere with a spectrum of buskers and street acts, from irish trad to rock, from under fire limbo dancerd to straight jacketed unicyclists....but the best was the zylaphone duet of the pink panther

It was on my June trip I went down Quay Street in the day time, you will see lots of entertainment in this street shops/pubs this street has it all, you will hear and see a lot of locals playing their own music on this street, I word of warning though for those who don't like crowds I would give it a miss as it does get very busy, but all in all you cannot fault the buzz day or night.

A very good selection of restaurants. plenty of Street entertainment. Good mix of people. Most of the pubs provided music and entertainment. there was a good selection of shops and many of them had 'sales' with good bargains. The general atmosphere was friendly and there was generally a good 'buzz' about the place.

Exciting pedestrian street featuring a number of great attractions. Don't miss O'Mailles Traditional Clothing for beautiful handknit Aran sweaters, the best in the world

This area is definitely a place to experience for at least one night and day. Lots of history, shopping, restaurants and street entertainment.
