Best Irish Bars in Dublin

No trip to Dublin is complete without visiting some of the amazing bars and pubs that are scattered around. So let’s take a look at some of the best ones in the city.

  • The Stag’s Head

This establishment has been in business for a very long time and it’s only improved throughout the years. It has beautiful interior, with wooden panels, stained glass windows and of course, a HUMONGOUS stags head above the mahogany bar. Although it might look like a pretty old fashioned place, it’s super cosy and the staff are extremely welcoming to tourists and locals alike.

  • The Black Sheep

For those who are a fan of craft beers, you are definitely going to feel right at home here because there are such a wide range on offer. It’s really simply decorated but has a cool style to it also. You can sample beers that are well known over the world and ones that are local to Dublin in this pub.

  • The Horseshoe Bar

If you want to visit somewhere a little more swanky during your time in Dublin, this is a gorgeous little bar that is well worth checking out for that special occasion. There are a range of drinks available and the decor at the Horseshoe bar features deep red walls, sparkling mirrors and such luxurious vibes in general.

  • 9 Below

This fashionable bar is actually built in a stone basement which gives a really cool vibe as soon as you step foot in the door. With a mixture of classic brass fittings, a dark walnut bar combined with art deco and table service, this is a place that you are definitely going to enjoy. Again, this place is a little more expensive but the service you will receive at 9 below is more than worth it.

  • Mulligan’s

This pub has officially been in business since 1782 but it’s been a part of the furniture in Dublin since long before that, even being used as an illegal drinking hangout! It’s kept most of its style the same throughout the years which makes it a thoroughly authentic place to drink in Dublin. Mulligan’s is the kind of place where you have to enjoy a pint just so that you can say you’ve been there.

  • The Long Hall

Situated in a gorgeous Victorian building, this bar is less for tourists and more for locals which actually gives it a really relaxed feel. You not enjoy a range of different drinks at The Long Hall, including a classic pint of Guinness. This is a friendly place but it does get pretty busy by the time the evening rolls around, so make sure you grab yourself a seat in time.
