We loved Quay Street! The shopping is excellent with many pubs to choose from. We really loved the variety of street performers as well. It's a must see. It's so beautiful at night with all the lights!

Plenty of bouncing bars, music in most. Like minded people having a great time. Friendly people, up for a chat and most of all, a laugh. Make sure you finish your night in The Quays - all round super pub.

Beautiful place, a lot of buskers in the street, but very talented! People are very politely, friendly and you can find a lot of kind of souvenirs and restaurants, but the prices are a little bit expensives.
