Let’s get this out of the way - you all know those old stereotypes around Ireland’s relationship with the bottle and with 600 pubs, Dublin’s status as the home of Guinness and a staggering number of clubs in the city – it’s a stereotype that’s reinforced in this party city. Yep those old streets of Dublin run black with that famous old stout, all the way to “Temple Bar”, which is the city’s cultural entertainment centre. Club-wise, Twisted Pepper, The Button Factory and Purty Kitchen are all well worth visits for your Dublin stag do.
What can we say about Dublin that hasn’t already been said? Well it does mean ‘town of hurdled ford’ which might be a nugget of information that you didn’t know… We can’t elaborate on it though, so let’s get to the obvious. Dublin is a city that wants to party at any given moment and completely embraces the happy-go-lucky Irish culture and of course, held up like some sort of God is that famous old stout that you MUST have at least one pint of during your stay. The cobbled streets run black with it!
Your stay here is going to be all about the nightlife and you might as well start things off early with a trip to the Guinness Storehouse before you really make your way into town and keep an eye out for places such as Solas, Club M or Alchemy for a night out that won’t disappoint.
We’ve already mentioned it but we’ll mention it again – the Guinness Storehouse is an essential tourist attraction to stop by but to soak up some culture that isn’t all about the booze, set aside time for the National Gallery of Ireland and the National Museum of Ireland too!
You already know what its famous for really don’t you – some good old Guinness, U2 (yep, Bono’s ego started here) and also having the largest public park in Europe!
To make your way around Dublin without stumbling through the city, set sights on the Luas - the tram/light-rail system that is probably the best way to get around the Irish capital. Alternatively though if you fancy cycling off a few of those Guinness-pounds, then like in any other major city, there’s the chance to hire a bike and cycle through town (doing this sober is advised!).
