  • 1. Thomas Moore Tavern

    Dating to the 13th century, the Thomas Moore Tavern is Wexford's oldest pub, named after the renowned Irish poet whose parents lived here. The pub has its original medieval walls and fine old beams along the ceiling, and a spot by the roaring fire is the perfect place for a quiet drink. There's a restaurant attached, and pub-grub dinners are served in the bar.

  • 2. Tynan's Bridge House

    Set on one of Kilkenny's famous "slips," Tynan's Bridge House was first used as an exercise run for dray horses. Inside, you can guess that the pub is more than 200 years old from all the gas lamps, silver tankards, and historic teapots on display. Behind the horseshoe-shape bar, you'll find antiquities from its time as a grocery and pharmacy, but it's best known these days for its Guinness and good conversation.

  • 3. Centenary Stores

    As the saying goes, if you can find a street without at least one bar on it, you've left Wexford. Centenary Stores is a Victorian-style pub with an adjoining nightclub that makes it popular with the young crowd. Lunch is served daily, and there's traditional music every Sunday morning.

  • 4. Geoffs

    Dimly lit Geoffs is frequented by a mixed crowd including students and locals. Big flagstones cover the floors, and seating is on old wooden benches. An outdoor area is available for smokers. A wide selection of food is served until 9 pm every night.

    9 John St., Waterford, Co. Waterford, Ireland
  • 5. Jack Meades

    Known to locals as "Meades under the Bridge," this place is indeed set beneath a time-stained stone bridge. In centuries past it was a stop on the coach road from Waterford to Passage East. There's a solid pub menu, and sing-along sessions on Saturday. In winter the fireplaces roar, illuminating the wood beams and displayed bric-a-brac.
