Ultimate twelve Pubs of Christmas Temple Bar Route

In case you are planning your December holiday already… Did you hear about 12 pubs of Christmas? It is a cherished Irish tradition where you get your mates together, you all get dressed up in Christmas jumpers (don’t have one? go to Penneys!) and attempt to visit 12 pubs and have drink in each of them! 12 pubs is a lot lads, so before you attempt this craziness, make sure to have a good feed (check out our restaurants in Temple Bar guide) and drink water wherever possible! This will be very short route – we are taking you through Temple Bar so you won’t get tired of walking and you’ll get more fun time in pubs!

We have little google map for you here so you can plan your route. You will never be further than 5 minute walk of our hostel so if you separate from your friends or if you had enough, you will be able to come home to your bed easily and safely! Seriously, don’t attempt 12 pints, get some water in you as well!
