We enjoy going to Durty Nelly's before leaving Ireland via Shannon Airport. Particularly when staying at a bnb up the road close by like at Innisfree.

Great night life and local music. Decent menu and lunch available during the day and food also for the after party. Easy walk from the castle or shopping areas.
