Mulligan and Haines
Malloagn and aines Dublin, Ireland Mallagon and Aines was a very cool little spot we stumbled up with very fun decor and drink menu. This is where I Tried a kopparbarg strawberry lime cider for the first time which has taken spot number 1 for ciders for me, my mom went with a GNT and my always obnoxious dad saw the drink named, Satan’s Bitch on the wall and had to order it to get a laugh out of not just us but the server as well. To our surprise his drink was out of this world tasty, more of a desert then a drink but worth trying for sure! Dora was our server, an absolute sweetheart from the states who was living in Dublin while attending college. She was so fun to talk to and just so adorable. Although we were only here for one quick drink it left such a great impression with us because of the great atmosphere, great service and great drinks. Highly recommend and hope to be back!

Jameson Distillery Bow St.
Jameson has many options to chose from while visiting. You can do a full tour, the secret tasting tour or even just enjoy ordering a drink of choice at the awesome bar! We decided to do the secret tasting because we have gone to enough distillery tours that we were ready to start tasting the goods! It was 40 minutes long, in John Jameson’s Office. It was said that John Jameson would have very extravagant party’s were he would bring a select few into his office during the party for secret tastings. We had 4 tastings to try which included the classic Jameson, Jameson Crested, Jameson Distillery Edition, and Jameson Black Barrel. 2 of which are only exclusive to the Distillery! Out of the four, Crested was by far my favorite and I was very pleased to be able to buy a bottle to bring home with me! The location has a store as well that if full of great buys along with a chance to buy and have a bottle personalized however you’d like! Nicole was our Jameson Ambassador and she was so great! She answered all of our questions and made the experience really fun. The bar also is truly so cool and worth stopping by even for a drink if you don’t have time for the tour, Adriano was a great bartender! Be sure to stop by when in the area!!

Slattery's
It was quite unfortunate that it wasn’t until our very last morning in Dublin that we stubbled upon Slattery’s because it couldn’t have been the more perfect place to start the day. Our favorite way to start the day is with a great Irish breakfast and an Irish coffee but to our dismay many places that serve breakfast don’t serve Irish coffees until 11 and many pubs that open early and sell Irish coffee does not have a kitchen that opens up early enough for us, yet Slattery’s was open very early and had it all! Mark was our server and possibly one of the managers or at least seemed like it with how personable and attentive as he was. We all enjoyed our breakfast so very much and as I said, these were the best Irish coffees we had the entire trip. I also ordered a breakfast tea that was wonderful. Slattery’s does have a full bar and great food menu. It is two floors and when you think of what a perfect Irish pub would look like you are picturing Slattery’s. Only plus side of not finding it until the last day is that we wouldn’t have tried any other places because we would have spent every morning here!

37 Dawson Street
This is not just any bar. They are 37 Dawson street, a late bar and food emporium. 37 Dawson Street is quite a unique and very loud place. When I say loud I don’t mean volume, the establishment is actually on the more quite and chill side but the decor is what really grabs your attention. I couldn’t help but feeling some moulin Rouge Vibes in the front of the room. It has two floors and a back room that was unfortunately closed while we visited because it was a Monday night but we were able to steal a peak and it looks like quite the spot for a weekend night out! They also have great events going not throughout the week such as Terrific Tipple Tuesdays and brunch with DJ Painted Lady on Sundays. Lauren was our wonderful server, very sweet and personable and Tony was the very talented bartender. I often enjoy asking bartenders what they like making and after asking me a few questions about my taste he sent over a very refreshing yet strong drink which to my surprise was simply a Tom Collins with elderflower for a twist. My mom went with the always tasting GNT with elderflower and my dad chose a Powers John Lane, a new bourbon Tony has recommended him trying which he really enjoyed. We went with Laurens recommendations of the crispy fresh calamari which was served with a chili jam and the steak bites with pepper sauce. They do have a full regular menu but they are known for their tapas and after enjoying ours we understood why! Would definitely love to visit again and hopefully see the liveliness of a Saturday night!

PI
Although Ireland is full of great fresh seafood and other traditional dinning options, sometimes the heart just needs it’s Za. We spent one afternoon hitting pubs and doing some day drinking so when it came to lunch and really craving some good pizza Pi was the perfect place. It was quick, had a great selection of beers and ciders for us to chose from so we did not lose our buzz’s and the wood fired oven pizza was awesome! We went with a margarita pizza and although we personally like the pie cooked a little longer but it still hit the spot just right and they also had red pepper flakes and olive oil for us as well. My mom and I each enjoyed an Orpens Cider and a Ichnusi Non Filtrata beer for my dad, all were great! Our server was Victoria and she was wonderful! She stayed around and chatted with us quite a while about places we should see and also asking us for advice about her upcoming move to the states! She really added to the great experience we had!

blooms hotel
When staying in Dublin for the first time we had heard the same recommendation over and over again, stay near Temple Bar. After doing some searching we came across Blooms Hotel and let me just say, it was fantastic. The location could not get better, it was right in Temple Bar Square, a short walk to Trinity College and the River as well. We truly felt we could get anywhere we needed to in under 15 minutes walking. The rooms were great and very spacious, wifi worked great, beds were very comfortable, and a pub right inside! Magda works at the front desk and was there to guide us with everything we needed from finding somewhere for breakfast with exactly what we wanted to finding a bus to Galway and even printing us our tickets. Dana works at the Bar in the hotel and was also very helpful in assisting us with finding places nearby that we just couldn’t miss out on! Overall Blooms is not the cheapest of places to stay in Dublin but I felt it was worth it for our few nights in the area to feel safe walking everywhere and feel overly comfortable in our room!
