Great street for shopping

Lots of shops and lots of people watching. This wide open street gives you plenty of space to walk around and listen to street performers. Time to get your shopping on

Pub (P O'Donnel's) was outstanding fun and great music. No food. Area was a bit unsettling after dark.

Hit a number of Pubs on Waterloo Street, all with very different entertainment. From traditional Irish to popular music. All provided a great atmosphere and a fun night out - didnt think the bars would very close down for the night!

They've now turned it it more or less into a Pedestrian precinct. Bollards stop any car travel up or down it

Choose a Saturday night for a busier experience. Go through the bars working your way through Traceys Bar, Gwedore, Padaers and Masons. Many eateries along your way.

A street that I know well, with the Rocking Chair pub at the top. There are some significant history in this area and happenings. There are several interesting pubs along here, and at the top views over the Bogside. The traveller must decide for them selves about the features and history of this street.

During the day this street has some interesting shops as well as cafes. At night, things change. There is no shortage of popular pubs on this street. One pub in particular, located at the top of Waterloo Street seems to be a local favorite.
