    The mince and onion pies and sausage rolls from the original Emerald Isle (Dunnes) on Patrick Street and the chips and burgers from the French Fryer on Parnell Street


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 629 ✭✭✭ Partizan


    Breens/The Bridge Hotel Disco: Just for the early-to-mid 90s
    Flow Motion (Fri nite club above Egans)
    Egans itself for that matter.
    The Olde Rogue (Wacky Apple is the complete opposite)
    The Pulpit/Preachers (always thought they both had a cool interior)
    Skippers chipper in Patrick Street
    Waterford in the 1990s!

    Let me add to that:

    1. Hoffmans
    2. Club LA
    3. The Roxy
    4. Harneys Blaas
    5. ABC Radio for some 80s nostalgia.
    6. Muldoons in its heyday

    You are right there Joey, Waterford in the 90s was a hopping place.

    I remember the cafe upstairs in Shaws,after a hard days shopping in town on a Saturday with me mammy we would always go there,id always get a coke or orange float and an auld club milk or something :)

    Ah yeah, the orange floats in Shaws were deadly!

    Other things I miss - Not Greasy neds! Horrible chips, although you could get them for free if you were quick enough ;)

    Phelans Tobacconist - Never smoked much but you could get a parker pen, lindt chocolate, swiss army knives and all kinds of stuff in there.

    The L&N on the corner of Patrick St and Broad Street, the supermarket where bizarrely part of it was upstairs, you had to leave your trolley on the ground floor!

    The Beefy King (Esp when Eddie Coady worked there);
    Mork from Ork's;
    Egans definitely, its such a shame thats gone;
    The Chuck Wagon;
    ABC Radio, of course;
    When you could drive down Barronstrand Street;
    The Renaissance Cafe opposite Egans, always fancied a girl called Bridget who worked there!
