Peadar O’Donnell’s

Popular with backpackers, Peadar O’Donnell’s provides good old fashioned “craic” and live music every night (although shows often start late, and sometimes give way to live broadcasts of football matches). It's a proper traditional Irish bar serving beer at affordable prices.

Bars & Nightlife

Be sure not to miss out on a pint in one of Derry’s fine drinking establishments. Whether you are looking for a stylish wine bar or a laid-back local pub, a friendly atmosphere and good music is often to be expected. Derry’s young population (most inhabitants fall into the 20 - 40 age range) likes to party and clubs are usually open until about 2 am, some host live music shows. Most charge an entry fee. The city centre can get quite raucous when the clubs spill out so stay on guard, but is generally quite safe.
