“Local Bar on Patrick Street, Derry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

A friend of mine from Derry, told me about this place, He said it is a great Derry bar, and has been there for ages, but has changed a lot over the years. So, on his recommendation, I paid a visit.

The place was packed, even at 3pm, but the Fleadh was starting tomorrow. Mostly men, but women were also present, and seemed very welcome. A kinda down to earth type of crowd, who probably work hard, and enjoy their few pints, my kinda place. The bookies is out the back door, so you could see a steady stream of customers heading out. Enjoyed it very much, will be back.

“Tuesday night session”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

I went to a music session on a Tuesday night in the upstairs part of the pub -- mostly locals, with a few visitors sharing their talents as well. It was really cool to hear the songs that these people knew (some were hilarious), and the fiddling was great. We were there watching someone we'd met; it might be weird to go just as a spectator if you didn't know anyone who was playing, but it's definitely worth a shot, especially if you don't mind singing or playing something yourself. Cool sort of atypical experience!
