Called in a few times during a recent trip to Derry. Always buzzing, a great bar with pleasant and helpful staff. Time your visit to catch the regular traditional sessions to get the full Irish bar experience.

A night out in Ireland is always topped off with a visit to a good pub and listening to some fine music. Peader's bar does both. Music starts at 10 p.m. or a little later.

We stayed in Derry for two nights and ended up in Peadars on both nights. There's a great buzz about the place and a mix of all ages and nationalities. The traditional music was great and we really enjoyed both nights.

Had a fun night listening to Irish music and drinking Guinness - what's not to like! We thought they were playing the music but it turned out the live band at the front of the Bar! No wonder it was such good music!
