Irish nightlife doesn’t get any better than the pub crawl in Waterford. A pub crawl is the European version of what Americans know as bar hopping: ordering alcoholic drinks at a series of local taverns. There are a number of ways to enjoy this storied tradition in Waterford. Ideally, the pubs should be within walking (or crawling) distance of one another, to avoid the complications of finding someone to drive. This is where Waterford Ciddy Tours (WCT) can help. WCT’s web site has a list of recommended “Ciddy Tours” (pub crawls), complete with maps and color photographs of the outside of each pub so as to make them easier to locate. The “Mayors Walk,” for instance, will take you from the Exchange to Tap Room to Ida Mordant’s to Nicky’s, altogether some of Waterford’s finest pubs.

The main advantage of taking such a tour is that it allows you to see more of the town’s drinking establishments in one night. Since most of Waterford’s late night venues are open until 3 or 4 in the morning, you certainly won’t have to rush. However, there is something to be said for spending the entire evening in one place. Jack Meade’s has live bands and serves food in addition to alcohol, making it the clear choice for an extended visit. It is located underneath a bridge in the Halfway House district of town. Geoff’s, closer to Waterford center, is another good choice; it’s a livelier spot very popular among university students.

It is hard to go wrong at night in Waterford. If all else fails, simply walk down any well-lit street, find a pub, order a pint of Guinness, and enjoy!
