Drink in Dublin: Best Places to Say “Sláinte”

After all that walking and touring of historical sights in Dublin, you’re going to need a stiff drink. Thankfully, there are no shortage of drinks in Dublin.

1. L. Mulligan Grocer

This perfect little neighborhood pub is right in Stoneybatter. With plenty of fantastic food options as well as whiskey and beer, this is the best stop to park yourself and get cozy for the night. This might be my favorite spot for a drink in Dublin.

2. Walsh’s

 Another traditional Irish pub right in Stoneybatter, Wlash’s no frills pub with local clientele.

3. The Cobblestone


If you’re in the mood for some live music while enjoying your pint, The Cobblestone has got you covered. Check their schedule before going, you might even get some traditional Irish step!

4. Peruke & Periwig

If you are feeling bougie cocktails instead of a pint, come here. Peruke & Periwig makes bespoke cocktails with a menu inspired by popular songs from each genre of music.

5. The Bar With No Name

I’m not entirely sure how to classify this bar. Located upstairs in what looks like an old town apartment, I kind of get the feeling like I’m drinking in someone’s living room. It also has a good outside area if the weather allows it.

6. Vintage Cocktail Club


Another place for a fantastic cocktail. This place is more of the speakeasy style bar, where it’s behind an unmarked door and up a flight of stairs. The menus is themed around cocktail history, so you can drink your way through the decades.

7. The Stag’s Head

If you’re looking for a drink in the Temple Bar, The Stag’s Head is a great option. A traditional Irish pub that’ll make you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. Sure, it’s probably a little touristy but don’t let that turn you off.

8. Dice Bar

This place has a great grungy/dive bar feel in Dublin. They have a wide variety of craft beer, if you feel like you need a break from the last few Guinness.

9. Kehoe’s

Similar to The Stag’s Head, Kehoe’s is a traditional Irish pub that feels like it’s survived the last century relatively untouched.

10. Vat House Bar

Alright, final option on the list is for when you’re already hammered and in the Temple Bar area. The Vat House has live music, so you’ll definitely get some traditional Irish step here.
