Best cosy pubs with fireplace in Dublin

Winter is coming! This is truly wonderful time in Dublin – while it is colder (it’s very rarely really freezing cold) time of the year it tends to be dryer as well – so expect less rain, crisp clear nights and faint sunshine all day long. This is perfect weather to wrap up warm and go out exploring Dublin and its cultural attractions with stops in some of the cosy pubs with fireplace to warm up over a pint, stew or Irish coffee.

These are our favorite pubs with fireplace in Dublin:

Dame Tavern

This is real gem of a pub! Go upstairs for cosy pint by the fire, stew and great fish and chips, or go to basement for comedy gigs. Staff is awesome, location is brilliant and only few minutes away from our hostel and you defo need to check this place out!

Smell of turf as you get in the pub is unforgettable! Known as one of the most popular music venues in Dublin (and place where most of our pub crawl tours go for a bit of clubbing) this pub is a real gem any time with great fire in the front pub section. Frequently with free music as well. Must-visit!

The Glimmerman

Set in Stonneybatter, this pub is worth time it will take you to get there. Cosy & quirky, it is one of the kind. We have enjoyed their summer Vietnamese street food popup and can’t wait for the winter version!

No Name bar

Located in Fade street, this place is known for great cocktails, awesome heated beer garden and relaxed space inside where you can enjoy the drinks by the fire. This place will get busy on the nights out, so keep that in mind when planning your cosy cocktails.

The Gin Palace

Can there be anything better than sipping gin by the fire? If you are into drink of gods (gin, obviously) this place is a must-visit! Go for a sampling tray of gins and chill out by the fire. This is great pub on it’s own right, even if you are not into gin and prefer to get a pint and chill.
