Quay Street - Review

The street for everything! – shopping, eating, nightlife, hotels, drinking, and delightful people watching. The vibe here isn’t about party, or youth – it’s about the joy of life and good old Irish craic. Lets not go into the buildings just yet –there are too many awesome things happening on the road. There are jugglers, and musicians (locally called buskers) and mimes and acrobats. The music is incessant and merry, like something out of a folktale. Not that all the people who play know HOW to play – you’re bound to suffer a cacophony or two. The path is cobblestoned (of course it is); the eateries all have outdoor seating (that’s where you want to be unless its raining) and the shopping is to die for. If it seems lively in the day, it gets crazier in the night when the pubs really start to pound out the booze. Like we said, the fun’s not for the young ‘uns alone; the older crowd has no objection to the noise and atmosphere and might just be more into it than anybody else.
