Located on Victoria Street, Finnegan’s 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 t...


Finnegan's Wake is well known for it's music and Irish sports on TV. It is a large, central and popular bar with a small room at the back where Fringe performances take place during the day until 7pm. (The bands start at 7.30pm meaning that performances cannot take place later).

The venue is exceptionally well located and is nearly next door to our venue, it's also moments from the Royal Mile and Grassmarket - The back room is located on the same floor as the main bar, and is an intimate room which is fully wheelchair accessible, in a venue with full facilities for disabled customers.
