An American student’s guide to the best nightlife spots in Dublin city - PHOTOS
Figuring out what “the craic” is and where to find it readily in Ireland’s capital
The Bleeding Horse - (Upper Camden St. and Charlotte) A very old pub at the end of Camden St. Not exceptional for any specific reason, but it’s ancient and beautiful, and became the regular hangout for my friends when we were there.
The Bank on College Green -(Dame St.) Drinks are pricey, but the beautiful ceiling is worth seeing. 20 College Green
The Stag’s Head- (1 Dame Court) A classic old authentic pub.
The Temple Bar- Although this falls under the category of Places Not Worth Visiting, it does so with fond memories. The Temple Bar is a district full of pubs that cater to tourists; if you're going to visit it, try the eponymous pub The Temple Bar and be prepared for crowds.
Looking for your fellow students? We got tired of being hit on by 60-year-old men in the Temple Bar district, and migrated to these places instead.
The Pav - Trinity’s campus bar (but non-Trinity students can often get in). Beer and Bulmers here is comparable to at MacTurcaills and Doyles, but you can also grab cheap cans of cider and beer- ask about their special if you're buying more than one.
MacTurcaills -(15 Townsend Street, Dublin 2) On the North side of Trinity, with prices comparable to the Pav (3.50 for pints), and a frequent venue for Trinity club nights out.
Doyle’s -(9 College Street, Dublin 2) Similar to MacTurcaills, with less sitting room but an area for dancing upstairs.
Ginger Man -(40 Fenian Street, Dublin 2) Recommended to us as a place the Trinity sports teams hit up (other than the Pav).
Workman’s Club -(10 Wellington Quay, Dublin 2) Located along the quay, the Workman's club has a rooftop bar open to the sky.
Clubs -(Clubs were not particularly our scene, but we tried a few.)
Coppers - (Harcourt St.)The official name is Copperface Jacks, but don’t refer to it as such. This seedy place is where everyone will ask you if you’ve been. It’s not worth the hype unless you’re looking for an anonymous hookup, which is practically guaranteed with admission.
