Drink[edit]

O'Donoughes bar is a real mans bar,it is the oldest Bar in the town going back 200 years. The regulars that hang there are at least 50 and the younger people that frequent the place are either old before their time or serious hard drinkers .O'Donoghues Bar would be considered a "Dive Bar" "A church for down-and-outers and those who romanticize them, a rare place where high and low rub elbows—bums and poets, thieves and slumming celebrities. It’s a place that wears its history proudly". Do not expect a hug at the door, more like a snarl, but that is what you have come for..

O'Donoghues lounge in the same location has an entirely different feel,this cozy lounge with wonderful customers and staff.Again no music, but you can get music almost in any bar or pub in town, Conversation is the entertainment here.

Popular pubs in Edenderry are Foys Larkins where you can be sure to get late drinks! Pats Bar and Byrnes are also great bars with fine pints. Club 38 has recently opened in Finbarr Cullens, so for Saturday night clubbing its the place to be, other bars to check out are the four sons for fine cocktails and the Corner House for live bands on the weekends.
