Located on Victoria Street, Finneganís wake is right in the heart of town and seconds from Espionage and the Underbelly. The bar is open all day during the Fringe and serves a huge variety of drinks, and after the Fringe shows finish each day the bar hosts live music and bands all night until very late into the night. Definitely the place to go for a laugh and a party at the Fringe!
