Dublin
The hustle and bustle of historic Dublin harbors a welcoming soul - and locals who know how to party. From the Temple Bar cultural quarter to the rejuvenated and reinvented bars found near the docks, there is something for everyone in this friendly city.

Whether you’re after a typical Irish pub complete with flowing beer and traditional ceilidh, a chic cocktail lounge offering delicate concoctions in a sophisticated decor, or a lively club with the music turned all the way up, you won’t be disappointed.

To start things off, the traditional nightlife area of Dublin is in the historic Temple Bar district. From bustling live music venues to elegant drinking dens serving up 21st century cocktails in 19th century surroundings, this animated neighborhood has it all. Sure, things can get a bit rowdy in these streets past a certain hour, but that’s all part of the charm isn’t it?

If you’re more of a quiet mood, the atmosphere starts getting much calmer as soon as you start moving away from the center. Explore the centuries-old surrounding streets, and stop at one of Dublin’s superb legendary pubs such as The Brazen Head, The Cobblestone or Mulligan’s – but be sure to get there early to snag a seat. Catch a play or musical at one of the city’s historic theaters, or simply take a pleasant after-dinner stroll and enjoy the charming sights. 

Finally, the Dublin Docklands has become a must-visit destination for those getting to know the capital. While the area has always been a major component of the capital’s history and development, it’s recently been transforming into a vibrant entertainment hub thanks to the implantation of tech companies such as Google and Facebook bringing in thousands of young workers. Only a short walk from the city center, it is now home to multiple art and entertainment venues, from theaters to concert halls and galleries, as well as exciting drinking and dining options.
