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!
