Quench your thirst with some of the best beverage experiences DublinTown has to offer
DublinTown is home to some of the best bars in the world, not only because the drinks themselves are world-class, but because it’s hard to find an atmosphere in a bar quite like that of a Dublin Pub.
If it was simply a good drink that people left the comfort of their houses for on any given evening, a lot more people would be stay-at-home drinkers. Generally it’s more than the drink in front of you that would entice you to leave your home and head into town. What people seek out is the atmospere, the service, the experience. We at DublinTown know how lucky we are to be home to some of the best bars and pubs in the country, and encouraged some of them to get involved in celebrating that with the DublinTown Food and Drink Festival.
Here’s what we’re most looking forward to;
‘Lemon and Duke Jazz Brunch’
