Guinness Storehouse & Jameson Distillery
Voted the most popular tourist attraction in Europe 2015 Guinness Storehouse continues to have visitors entertained. As you all know Ireland is famous for its Guinness so if you’d like to see how it’s brewed, how the locals drink it and how it’s widely advertised you may want to stop off here first. It offers a wonderful experience for those interested to know all about Dublin’s infamous stout. You can take a tour of this seven-storey complex and even do a taste test afterwards.
If you are more of a whiskey drinker the place to be visiting is, Jameson Distillery Bow Street. Here you can take a nice stroll through this historic distillery learning all about copper stills and Irish whiskey. The tour teaches all about the industry and skilled employees they recruited such as coppersmiths and ironmongers to make it a success as it is today and afterwards you get a free shot at the bar, lovely!
Temple Bar, South Bank
If you want to experience the traditional Irish culture than we recommend no other than Temple Bar to offer that experience. This fond and lively place consists of a number of bars and pubs plus walking tours set in a lively atmospheric location displaying typical Irish culture. You have Folk music, bold graffiti and sensational pub food and Irish drinks to enjoy too.
Brazen Head and Johnnie Fox’s
One of the most ‘go-to’ places to visit in Dublin is the Brazen Head, It’s one of Dublin’s Oldest Pubs, and it’s packed full to the brim of character. This 12th-century Historic Irish Pub has served the likes of James Joyce, Michael Collins and Daniel O’Connell. Imagine what tales are buried in the bricks and mortar here? If only those walls could talk! We love that fresh Ale is served on tap here, alongside Traditional Irish dining. It’s Irish at its best, so if you want to live and experience Irish culture, then this is the place to be!
If you are taking a trip to the beautiful town of Glencullen then a stop off at Johnnie Fox’s Pub and Restaurant is an absolute must! If the wonderful scenic View doesn’t catch your breath, I’m sure the food, drink, and entertainment here certainly will! Considered the highest pub in Ireland Johnnie Fox’s is perched neatly amongst the Dublin mountains. Dating back to 1798 it has an award-winning seafood kitchen and infamous live entertainment/dancing.
