With a good mix of clubs and bars, Limerick nightlife has something for everyone.
Dolans may be the best pub in Limerick when it comes to craic, Guinness, and Irish Music. Local musicians play traditional music every Tuesday and Thursday evenings. The family of Jerry Flannery, who plays for Munster and Ireland, owns the rugby themed Fla’s. Voted best new pub of the year, Finn’s offers two pubs in one place. An upscale classic Irish pub on the ground floor has a wide selection on tap, a raised area for musicians on weekends, and a nice class of customer. An old style country pub in the basement gets a young crowd most nights. Tom Collins serves the best Guinness in Limerick. The Locke is a modern pub/restaurant along the canal at the edge of the city. It’s popular with local thirty-somethings and an occasional tourist.
Bunker 4, situated in the basement of Au Bars, offers patrons a quieter experience than most clubs in Limerick. “I-kandi” is Limerick’s only private members Night Club. It attracts a national and international crowd, and not really locals. The Icon, Limericks’ largest club, has two main rooms. The smaller opens on crowded nights. Both play a mix of mainstream, dance, slow, and retro music. The Market Nite Club on Denmark Street is a club for those who don’t like the hustle and bustle of the Icon. A huge outdoor courtyard, nightly DJs, and colored lights make the Trinity room feel like a slice of Miami Beach.
