    Doing the shopping in Darrers with the parents.

    It's mad...I know the exact lay out of that place, as well as Wellworths (or was it woolworths) (where the brasserie is now) and I'm sure I was only a kid when they closed (im 30 now) (that's a lot of brackets in fairness)

    Nah, never liked that place. there was an annoying security guy who would be at you the whole time if you were having a look through the comics or magazines.

    Burgerland is a great one.

    I really miss Temple Bar, in there after a few in bad bobs on a Monday was quality. I have never found a pub I liked as much.

    Fond memory of distance darts in there:-)

    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.

    Agree 100%. Waterford in the 90s was better than Celtic Tiger era Waterford. Looking back I enjoyed every minute of it. They were great times.

    My god I can still taste a mega garlic creamy chicken roll from pie co. I loved them.

    Funderworld was what came before Kidzone.
    It was where PC World is now. Had a bowling alley, arcade machines (including TMNT and The Simpsons), party area for your birthday and a MASSIVE play area like the one they have in Kidzone. Primary feature being the massive slide that would give your arms burns that would last days and it was staffed by poor students who couldnt give a ****.

    BEST.PLACE.EVER.

    I remember the bowling alley. I barely remember some sort of slide with a verticle drop and similar things. A bit like the obstacle course from full metal jacket but with more padding, brighter colours, and no drill sergeant calling you a malformed piece of amphibian sh!t.

    Did they then take out the slides and so on and then leave it as just a bowling alley?

    The bowling alley was on one side and the slides and stuff on the other,they closed one part first then the next,cant remember which ones though.

    Think you're thinking of Playworld.It was on the Tramore Road,kinda across from where Ivory's Hotel was;I think there's a Sam Hire there now.

    It was smaller but when you had a party there the birthday person would get a bright yellow t-shirt with 'Playworld' printed on it!

    anyone remember Kitty Gores on Wilkins Street? Selling single fags, a match & a bit of sand paper to light it off to the teenagers in De La Salle....jaysus the 80s were great


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,556 ✭✭✭ Nolanger


    Anyone remember the corner shop at the top of Water Street?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,080 ✭✭✭ homolumo


    I miss The Roxy, Skippers, Flowmotion and The Old Rogue. Like other posters, I miss the 90's. Great music and social scene.

    Great thread, I have to agree with the above. Add Leahy's cream sponge, The Pulpit/Preachers and Breens to that list. Skippers was bloody great, great for a feed for the stagger home. What was the name of the pub alongside Muldoons? Had my first proper pint in there.
