Clubs and Pubs and entertainment in Ireland


Dublin is starting to get a great club scene the only problem is that it is only open till 3:00am. The club we would recommend would be Space at Temple Theatre, which is located on Temple Street. This night will give you your hard house dose for the week. The capacity is 1,600, but be sure to still get down there early so your not disappointed.

If you don't have a chance to go to Space at Temple Theatre, then we would recommend Liberation at Mono it is on every Thursday. This club is located on Wexford St. and is open till 3:00am. What ever club you go to I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

There are pubs all around Dublin, but there is a great selection on the famous 'Temple Bar' area and also around Harcourt Street, where you will find some fanastic pubs and bars.

Galway is a huge university town with a great nightlife. If you love to drink this town should fit the bill with all its pubs. Most of the good pubs are located in the central area of Galway around Quay Street. We were in Galway in 2000 for St. Patrick's Day and the city was packed with tourists, which made it hard to get into any of the pubs.

Galway is more of a pub town then club town, but if you are eager to go out, the night to go to is Essense at GPO. This club is located on Eglinton Street and is open weekly from 10:00pm till 2:00am. This night caters to those people who want to here deep house music.
