Experience Ireland's nightlife


Renowned for its pubs and Guinness dark beer, Ireland is also known for its lively nightlife. The choices are unlimited when it comes to touring Ireland's coziest pubs. As soon as the sun goes down, the country’s bars and venues make the heart of its cities beat to a different rhythm. In Dublin, a trip to the Temple Bar district on the banks of the Liffey River is a must if you want to experience the capital's nightlife. Visit popular locations, like the Quays Bar and Temple Bar, as well as the city’s newer and trendier venues.

For the Irish, an evening out is synonymous with music. Just a few blocks from Temple Bar, head to The Brazen Head to enjoy a concert in the city's oldest pub, drink in hand.

Ireland’s other cities and towns also harbor this passion for nightlife. The village pub in Bunratty, County Clare is sure to keep you out a little later than expected. Durty Nelly's has been serving beers and entertaining locals and visitors alike since the 17th century.
