Shop Street is pretty much unavoidable! And although you would think that the clue is in the name, I frequented this street more for it’s pubs than it’s places to shop! Pubs like The King’s Head, The Quay’s, Taffe’s and The Front Door are some of my favourite places to go on this street and are almost guaranteed to have a good crowd in them come nighttime! My favourite would have to be The Quay’s where they host live music every night – the atmosphere is just always amazing in here!
