Nightclubs and Bars in Waterford – Clubs & Bars

Waterford Nightlife 

Waterford is one of the most intriguing cities in Ireland. If you’re traveling to Waterford, you may want to check out the nightlife the city has to offer.


This pub has a little something for everyone. During the day, it’s a family-friendly environment, and at night, it’s full of entertainment, socializing, and great drinks. Unlike the typical old-fashioned pubs, Kazbar has a modern design. The pub has a nice selection of cocktails, wine, and food.


This is a great spot for those who are into the metal/rock genre. Situated in an old brick building, Murphy’s is a popular place for many bikers. The drink prices are lower than other places.

The Foundry Nightclub

If you’re looking to party the night away with a group of friends, The Foundry Nightclub is the place to be. You can dance to club music on weekend nights or have a more peaceful moment with a drink during the day. If the club becomes crowded, don’t worry since the crowd is pretty laid back.

Keep in mind that while there is no dress code, you still need to make sure you don’t look disheveled, otherwise, the staff may refuse your entry.

Downes Bar

Opened in 1797, this is considered to be Waterford’s best pub. Even though there are no amenities, the pub appeals to people of all ages with different tastes. Whether they are into theater, hip hop, or Jazz, Downes is a popular highlight. Do not expect to hear a variety of music since none is played. The atmosphere was designed for open conversations and a few drinks.
