The Definitive List of Where to Drink in Dublin City

  • Thu, 31 Jan 2019

Whether it’s casual pint in a quintessential Dublin pub, a Manhattan in an elegant cocktail bar, or a tipple after hours, we’ve got you covered. No more stressing over where to go.

If you’re anything like us and our mates, deciding where to go can be a nightmare. It usually leads to a 30 minute discussion with no final decision and we end up going to the same place we’ve gone for the last 5 years. There’s nothing wrong with that, but if you want to branch out, find somewhere new in DublinTown to drink, this is the list for you.
