The first pub we headed to in Limerick City centre was Nancy Blakes. It’s on Denmark Street in the city. A few people recommended that i visit this pub. We walked in past the bouncers and into the beer garden area. It was packed with people and there was a great atmosphere. I got a pint of Guinness and a glass of Coors light. It was a battle to get to the bar in the small area inside. The bar staff were efficient and were working hard to serve everybody. Judging by the size of the crowd in this pub, it is one of Limerick City’s top night spots. There appeared to be people of all ages in this pub last weekend. We actually walked out of this pub through the beer garden entrance and went back in to the main pub. This part has a very traditional feel to it. It was very busy in this section as well. We managed just about to get standing room and i enjoyed another Guinness and Jen had another Coors Light. The pints that i had were very good to be honest.
The toilets were small and in need of attention. There may have been other toilets that i didn’t see but the ones i used were not in great condition. Overall it was an enjoyable trip into this pub and i can certainly recommend it. Check it out for yourself.
Toilet rating: 4/10

Final comment: Nancy Blakes is a pub that will suit many people. A taxi driver told me that it is very busy 7 nights a week.
