Check-out date

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 an old man's pub, you will find a friendly atmosphere and great music. Most venues stay open until 1 am.

Derry’s very young population likes to party and clubs are usually open until about 2 am, many have live music. Most charge an entry fee. The city centre can get quite raucous when the clubs spill out so have your wits about you!


Dedicated politically and culturally to Latin American revolutionaries, Sandino’s is a cosmopolitan haven. An excellent venue for live music.
