Ten Best Places in Ireland to Find a Party

June 5, 2007 at 9:20 am 2 comments

If you’re looking for a party in Ireland, you should start in Maynooth in Kildare or Galway City, where one house in every six is a non-family household containing no related persons. That’s based on the latest census figures. Here are the ten best places to party. >>>

The Top Ten

  1. Maynooth in Kildare (one house in every six)
  2. Galway City (one house in every six)
  3. Annacotty in Limerick (one house in every eight)
  4. Carrick-on-Shannon in Leitrim (one house in every ten)
  5. Sligo Town in Sligo (one house in every ten)
  6. Limerick City (one house in every eleven)
  7. Ballyhaunis in Mayo (one house in every twelve)
  8. Westport in Mayo (one house in every twelve)
  9. Athlone Town in Westmeath (one house in every twelve)
  10. Cork City (one house in every thirteen)


  • Statistics based only on non-family households with unrelated people.
  • Only measures quantity of such households; quality may vary.
  • Residents may not actually host parties, or may host boring parties.
  • Residents may not welcome internet strangers crashing their party.
  • So, all in all, not really very useful at all.

    Galway really is the place to be with all those single women, house parties and um, diahorretic tap water.

    It’s much safer now – they’re selling bottled sparkling diahorretic water.
