Ideas & Suggestions for a Night on The Town!

    Dear All,

    I have a couple of fellas coming down to go out for a few drinks (or two!) next weekend [The May Bank Holiday] on the Saturday night. Now being in my 40's :eek: I am looking for any suggestions for a bit of a pub crawl. Twenty or even ten years I would know where to go and where to steer clear of.

    I am thinking of maybe starting from the West end Bridge side with the intention of ending up down in the Apple Market Vicinity. So I have complied a list of potential pit stops:
    Uisce Beatha; The Metalman Pub [formerly Murphs], Downses, Heerys, J Walsh [Georges St], Gingerman, Geoffs. Philly Grimes is also an option but I dont know how I'd figure that into the plan? Also we'd need a late bar (if we were not too full @ that stage). I would also have to factor in the age profile of those on the walk around town [40's all!].

    As I said it's been a while since I embarked on such a day out here in my home town so all replies would be welcomed! Normally if I headed to town it would be only for the one or two. Or a bit of food! Which reminds me bellies will have to be lined along the way so I was thinking Geoffs for bar food?

    Sounds good....maybe too many pubs, if you are anything like me and I'm similar age....a few pubs and then I'm exhausted so go home.

    Phillys is my favourite and I'm of a similar vintage to yourself!
    I'd make it my business to include it somehow.
    Uisce Beatha might be a bit on the young side for you but I'm open to correction on that one.
    And I'd swap the gingerman for Danny Macs.

    Woodman should be avoided at all costs. Scumbag Sean Johnston now back involved there and behalf of an american investors. should only be supported when Johnston pays back all his subbies and business partners over the years that he screwed.

    evil man? never called him that. called him a scumbag. as any decent person would do they would pay their bills and not have several businesses close because of his actions.

    Ah yes the good old days. Why on earth did these places just vanish? Not cool enough for the celtic tiger cubs or millenials?


  • Registered Users Posts: 451 ✭✭ Flow Motion


    I have taken some outside counsel and advice from others. Might scale back on the number of pubs! Or else we wont make it to the finish line! I think I'll try to have a few places in mind and just go with the flow. From experience trying to plan a session never really pans out the way you had envisaged

    Downes; J. Walsh's; Geoffs; Philly Grimes; Jordans; Tully's Bar and maybe Danny Mac's.

    As for late bar's which is the best or lesser of all evils?? ;)

    If d'weather was nice and it decided to leave the never ending Winter behind for once and for all a quick trip on the bus to Tramore to The Vic might spice things up a bit.

    Well this is the way of the "scumbag" I guess. Keep up the good work kid.

    I prefer a pint without the drama.

    Not mad about Geoffs myself, find it very dusty. Same with Jordons

    Not bad whens it's quite but can be annoying when busy and groups decide to stand at the bar and you have to barge you're in way in to get a drink. Obv that goes for all pubs not just geoffs

    Woodman is nice but can be extremely quite same with gingerman and few food pubs after 7pm on weekdays

    Quite like Ballybricken, decent when there's a match on

    Waterford City pub lack the craic I think but the "craic" seems to be a trick to attract tourists

    When they decided to start doing pub grub, that was its decline.

    That's been an ongoing problem for years.
