Best places to go out in Dublin

Whelan’s – One of the best live venues in Dublin, turns into indie night club after the bands have finished. Great music & great vibe, one of our favourite places to go out to! They often have house band playing in the front bar, so any night is a good night to go to Whelan’s.


Globe Bar – great place with loads of live music, very busy on weekends! Do not miss their rockabilly Sundays!  

Olympia – theater cum venue, with busy schedule including top artists, comedy, magicians, and panto!



Twisted Pepper – quirky place with some of the best coffee during daytime and some of the best music during night time. Venue is very popular, but bar itself is a cool going out spot in its own right, with resident DJs and great mojitos


Grand Social – You will find is in Grand Social more often than not! Loft venue on the roof is one of the best places to go out – Saucy Sundays are not to be missed! Downstairs pub has great indie DJs and is rocking well into the night! Don’t miss Ha’penny 2nd hand market in Grand social, every Saturday! This place rocks!
