Advantages: Will let you in no matter how drunk you are
Disadvantages: Too small
Costellos is a pub/restaurant/night-club located on Dominic street in Limerick city. Its in between oíConnel street and the railway station. The place is a reasonable size. 2 floors, The bottom being the pub and upstairs being the club.
Costellos is not one of those places where you would be looking to end up in at the start of the night. The reason you usually end up there is outside of your control. If you get refused in the other better nightclubs in the town or are just too drunk this is the place to go.
Itís a place of last resort on a bad night out. At the door you will find old Mr. Costello standing there as bouncer. He is grand, will usually let you in unless there is a private function and you donít want to go to one of those anyway. The club is alright, nothing special. They play good music, a lot of rock and Indie. No dance or cheesey pop music is allowed.
The Termities crowd come here once or twice a week. They are the people who dress in black and hate everything, also called freaks. Costello is also the main haunt for the art college crowd. They are different, in every sense of the word. I met a girl inside there one night and I asked her what she was wearing cause it looked a bit unusual. She said she made it herself from the curtains in her student house. it was full of safety pins, Half of them were left on my bedroom floor the nest morning.
The place also has a reasonably priced bar, The store room is in behind the big brown door next to the bar. They donít even lock it, so on a busy night you can sneak in there and get what you want without being caught of course. Donít even think they have bouncers.
There is a restaurant and bar downstairs. They do pub food and a carvery at lunch. Itís good stuff real cheap and cheerful. Costellos is grand but no more. There are better places in town, make sure your well on if you manage to go there.
Summary: Try trinity rooms or new mollys instead
