Laverys is one of the city's sports pubs, with a sprawling pool room, heated beer garden and HD TVs screening all the latest matches. And when the weekend rolls around? The historic boozer becomes a nightlife hotspot, with a 1200 capacity ballroom complete with sparkling disco ball.


One of the most popular traditional Irish music bars, Maddens guarantees a night of toe-tapping fun. With friendly locals, plenty of craic and a healthy offering of ales, stouts and draught beers, its the ideal spot for a casual date night.
