Best Bars Dublin – A selection of some of the most popular bars in Dublin
You can’t visit Dublin without paying a trip to at least a few bars, but you want to make sure that you choose the best in town. The following is a quick guide, to make sure that the bars you head to allow you to sample the true spirit of the Irish capital city. Here are just a few of the many places you should stop for a quick pint (or two).
First on the list is The Palace Bar, found on Fleet Street on the west side. This is a great stop for a pint during the daytime, because they are seldom crowded and have a large selection of Irish craft beers. They also have a fair amount of whiskeys, including their own unique brand. However, during the evening, it’s crowded, so you may want to grab a pint elsewhere.
The Long Hall is a cosy pub located on South Great George’s Street that has some crazy tile floors, and a back bar that almost appears to be constructed out of disco balls. Don’t let the glitter fool you, this is a great pub for a few drinks, and the overall ambience is nothing short of merry and spirited. It doesn’t open until 4pm, and can be quite busy on the weekends, but it’s worth visiting for the experience.
For a great Guinness, head over to Bowe’s, also found on Fleet Street, but on the east side. Believe it or not, the Guinness is even better here than at the brewery, and the staff are known for being fun and quirky. Stop in on a Sunday night and treat yourself to acoustic traditional music, while poring over a range of more than 100 whiskeys and quite a few craft beers.
Over on Baggot Street is another great pub known as Toner’s. The bar likes to consider itself a Museum Bar, and serves some great pints over the weekend. It’s full of locals that will allow you to have a more authentic experience than any at Temple Bar in the city. The fairly new beer garden is a good spot when Toner’s is full inside.
Finally, rounding out the list is The Dawson Lounge situated on Dawson Street. This is known as the smallest pub in Dublin, and it truly is, as it only sits 32 people. If you happen to be one of them, you will get the chance to fraternise with a great bartender, and locals that really know their way around a tap!
