The Ultimate Dublin Stag Do Guide 2019

The Fair City, The Emerald Isle, the ‘booziest capital in Europe’ – Dublin has been ruling the roost since the 9th century. The birthplace of Guinness, Jameson, the Temple Bar drinking district and, of course, Bono, is steeped in history and mighty craic for your stag do.

Dublin - The Booziest Stag Do Destination in Europe

Dublin is one of the loudest, busiest and booziest cities in the world. Guinness and whiskey flow through the streets, along with gorgeous Irish girls… Dublin consistently tops the best bars/pubs/clubs lists in the whole of Europe. There isn’t a tourist (or local) in the land that hasn’t been swept up in the hedonistic atmosphere of the notorious Temple Bar. But, you’ve also got a load more areas, filled with traditional venues and massive crowds.

Temple Bar

The Temple Bar is Dublin personified. Closely following Guinness and pots of gold at the end of the rainbow, this district is why this capital is beloved. The all-encompassing drinking zone is lined with pubs and bars, and that’s no exaggeration… The venues are crammed into a hugely busy street, with small alleys leading off the main ‘strip’ to even more pubs. There’s a reason this is the biggest attraction in the city.

We’re heading into edgy and alternative nightlife in Wexford Street, with the likes of Whelan’s attracting Ed Sheeran. However, as you snake your way down to Harcourt Street, it’s like you never left the Temple Bar. Bursting with massive clubs, it’s loud, lively and open ‘til very late… On the way to Harcourt Street, you’ll pass Camden – a quirky and hipster ‘strip’ to sink a few real ales and craft beers whilst twiddling your handlebar moustache.

The nightlife doesn’t stop at Temple Bar… Pass through the district and over the river, and you’ll experience the more traditional side of Dublin. This is where you’ll see the real city, with locals propping up the bars and sinking pints of Guinness (that stereotype is true). The nightlife stretches from O’Connell Street, to Jervis and the adjacent Capel Street.

Baggot Street to George Street

As you might have already guessed, Dublin nightlife is not narrowed down to one ‘strip’. The city centre’s boozy venues are spread all over, starting at Baggot Street – home to one of the city’s oldest pubs – all the way to the modern George Street, host to an A-list club. You’re also right in the thick of Dublin’s big shopping district, to pick up Dublin souvenirs (leprechaun fridge magnets, bottles of Guinness etc.).

Top 10 Stag Friendly Dublin Pubs & Clubs 2019

With four main nightlife areas to its name, all with distinctly different vibes (and price brackets), there's something to suit every stag group celebrating in Dublin. Whether you're after live music, the smoothest Guinness or you're just hoping to bump into wild hen parties, Dublin's the city that delivers. Here are the top 10 stag-friendly pubs and clubs in the whole city - we'll see you there.


The Temple Bar

The exterior of Dublin's Temple Bar

The iconic red corner building just off the cobbled streets of the area, is not just an excellent spot for drinking, live music and soaking up all of that local culture, it’s an iconic landmark in the city, too. Basically, you can’t have a stag do in Dublin without having a few pints in this pub. The atmosphere is buzzing, busy, loud and boasts traditional live music each day, starting from noon and going onwards until the early hours. This pub even has one of the busiest beer gardens in the whole city, where you can soak up the rays and enjoy that cheeky Irish craic that the city is renowned for.



25 Wexford St, D02 H527

Another icon on the Dublin nightlife scene is Whelan’s. Located on Wexford Street, this deceptively big venue is the real origins of music in the capital. As far as big names go, Ed Sheeran, Bloc Party and even Arctic Monkeys, have all performed on the big stage, and it’s even been the set of many films including P.S. I Love You (ask the missus…), so it’s kind of a big deal. Whilst live music is its bread and butter, the club also has all of the necessary elements for a Dublin pub; Guinness by the barrel, cheap spirits, gorgeous Irish lasses and locals of all ages.



60 Harcourt Street, Saint Kevin's, D02 P902

The beer garden in Dtwo, packed full of people in Dublin

You don’t get much bigger, better or louder than Dtwo. This two-floor club, bar and beer garden is massively popular with stags and hens and is actually located within Harcourt Hotel, where you could be staying, if you’re lucky enough. There’s even an all-weather terrace, with a capacity for 500; it’s so big, in fact, that it has its own ‘Backyard BBQ’ serving burgers, kebabs and all the stomach-liners you could possibly need at 3am.


Bad Bobs

35-37 Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

The huge sky light in the bar area of Badbobs in Dublin's Temple Bar

Bob is the kind of bloke your parents wouldn’t want you to hang around with, but he’s just such good fun. The five-floor bar/restaurant/club hybrid has a total of seven bars and is brimming full of quirky vintage paraphernalia, crazy atmospheric lighting, lively locals and stag and hen groups letting their hair down. There’s live music each and every night, a rooftop terrace where you can take the party al fresco and menu dedicated solely to whiskey. But, even if you’re not one for whiskey, Badbobs’ impressive shot, beer and wine list will have you on your knees by 8pm.


The Porterhouse Central

45 Nassau Street, D02 RP20

The interiors of Porterhouse Central

The popular three-level venue is Ireland’s first pub-brewery, attracting a loyal following of locals and every stag group who’s ever hit Dublin. Porterhouse Draught Brewing Co. has 11 of its own beers sold within the busy bar – including three stouts, three lagers and four ales – as well as boasting a huge whiskey and spirit selection, featuring Buffalo Trace, Jack Daniels Honey and even Dingle Original Gin. Plus, we all know that Temple Bar pubs hike up their prices for tourists who aren’t in the know, so get yourselves a selected beer of the day for €4 per day and thank us later.


CopperFace Jack's

29-30 Harcourt Street, Saint Kevin's, D02 XV58

The interiors of Copperface Jack with bunting up

No matter whether you’re celebrating your stag weekend with your little brother or your Bride-to-Be’s dad, you will end up in CopperFace Jack’s. Boasting a huge main bar and dance floor, a basement bar and a fully heated and covered beer garden, as well as mews bar and residence bar – there’s no shortage of space for all of the lads to spread out. There’s even a 22ft LED video wall and a Premium Level which caters towards private functions but also often serves as an extension of the club itself on occasion – boasting a massive 300 capacity. Located on the same street as Dtwo, you’ll be in the party neck of the woods here, for sure.


Buskers On The Ball

13 - 17 Fleet Street, D02 WD51

Our favourite stag-friendly sports bar in Dublin has to be Buskers on the Ball. Like nothing else in the area, the famous Buskers Bar has opened a, literally underground, sports bar beneath it – and it’s a stag do heaven. This ultimate man cave has five ping pong tables, six pool tables – including one American table – two shuffle board tables and two foosball tables. Luckily for you, Buskers on the Ball is located in the heart of Temple Bar, meaning you can get refuelled and recharge your batteries here before continuing the party.


Oliver St John Gogarty

58 Fleet Street, Temple Bar

The bright exterior of Oliver St John Gogarty

The loud and proud neighbour of The Auld Dubliner is bright green and couldn’t be more Irish if it tried. Named after famous Irish poet, playwright, surgeon and politician (and general Jack of all trades) – the bar gives an authentic flavour of Dublin, from right in the heart of Temple Bar. Spread over two floors, this is the prime spot for a good old Irish knees up, fuelled by the huge selection of rare whiskeys and massive wine list. You’ll wish Oliver came with you on all your nights out…


Dicey's Garden

21-25 Harcourt St, Saint Kevin's, D02 YF24

Dicey's Garden illuminated at night

Welcome to Dicey’s, the garden even Alan Titchmarsh is envious of. Dublin may be known as a pretty expensive city to visit, with Temple Bar drinks prices escalating as the night draws on, but this doesn’t mean you’ve got to remortgage your house or sell a kidney just to get drunk here. Some of the city’s best drinks offers can be found at Dicey’s, with selected drinks costing only €2.00 – which won’t break the bank. Located on Harcourt Street, within Russell Court Hotel, Dicey’s Garden has 23 screens to watch sport, top DJs performing each weekend and an unrivalled barbeque on offer. Dicey’s has also made it into Dublin’s Best Beer Gardens, so it’s a must for a sunny day in the capital – the garden has two floors, for goodness’ sake.


Lillie's Bordello

1-2 Adam Court, Grafton Street, D02 RP20

The interiors of Lillie's Bordello

Forget your Bride-to-Be, the only girl’s name on your lips this stag do is Lillie. Located just off Grafton Street, Lillie’s Bordello is widely regarded as one of Southern Ireland’s most prestigious haunts. Lillie is the girl your mother warned you about, allowing you to indulge in your most hedonistic and guilty pleasures, without batting an eyelid. It’s also famous for its Creme Egg Cocktails (yes, they are a thing). Located at the bottom of Grafton Street, the sophisticated and luxury interiors are in keeping with its surroundings, and, if it’s a beer and whiskey tasting session you’re after, no one does it better than Lillie.

Tick the Cultural Box on Your Dublin Stag Do

If your Dublin knowledge is limited to a ginger bloke called Paddy and a potent black beer, you probably should get yourselves a bit more cultured on your stag weekend in Dublin. Here's exactly how you can, with our top 10 ways to tick the cultural box in Dublin. Note: a lot of them are pubs - so it's a win-win.


Guinness Storehouse

St. James' Gate, Ushers, Dublin 8, Ireland Guinness Factory Tour

Guinness Storehouse

It’s number one for a reason. This one’s essential to tick off any stag do in the Irish city. The birthplace of the country’s best expat (other than Robbie Keane) is the city’s most popular attraction, with seven floors of Guinness history to explore. The giant pint glass of a building (which can hold 14.3 million pints of the good stuff, FYI), has seen the likes of Taylor Swift, Barack Obama, Tom Cruise, the entire Lord of the Rings cast and even The Queen pass through its gates – and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for your stag do. A trip to the Guinness Storehouse is educational, cultural and you can sink a few pints in the Gravity Bar at the top, too. Everyone’s a winner.


Old Jameson Distillery

Bow St, Smithfield Village, Dublin 7, Ireland Jameson Distillery Tour

Old Jameson Distillery

The Old Jameson Distillery is the former home of the world’s best-selling whiskey, Jameson. The enchanting distillery is packed full of history and insights into producing the liquid nectar. Similarly to the Guinness Factory, any trip here is semi-cultural, semi-p*ss up – our favourite kind of semi. It’s also got a huge bar where you can sample your favourite tipples. All in the name of absorbing the culture, of course…


Croke Park / GAA Museum

10 St Joseph's Ave, Ballybough, Dublin 3, D03 NF29, Ireland Croke Park Stadium Tour

Croke Park / GAA Museum

Croke Park is as much an icon in Dublin as the Temple Bar. This is the home of the Gaelic Games, Ireland’s traditional (and complicated) sport. It’s steeped in over a century of history, has a massive capacity of 82,000 and you can even take a tour around it. The weird and wonderful sports include Gaelic football, Gaelic handball and even hurling (a hockey-come-cricket-come egg and spoon race hybrid, obvs). We’re not going to pretend we understand all of the intricate rules to the sport, but we’ll happily try our hand at a spot of Gaelic Games. When in Rome ‘n’ that.


Temple Bar

Temple Bar, Dublin 2, Ireland Temple Bar

Temple Bar

Temple Bar, Dublin’s cultural quarter, is known the world over for its lively atmosphere 24/7 and its unmissable nightlife scene. You’ll recognise the Temple Bar itself from pretty much every iconic photo you’ve ever seen of Dublin, but the area boasts lots more than just the lively red corner building; there’s The Auld Dubliner, Oliver St John Gogarty and The Porterhouse Central to name but a few huge pubs in the area, all boasting live music, free-flowing drinks and enough craic to sink a battleship.


The Brazen Head

20 Lower Bridge St, Merchants Quay, Dublin 8, D08 WC64, Ireland

The Brazen Head

The Brazen Head is Dublin’s oldest pub, set just a 10-minute walk from the Temple Bar. Dating back to at least 1613, with word on the street that the site has housed a tavern or alehouse since 1198, it’s worth a visit for the history alone, but it’s also renowned for serving some of the best pints in the city (ah, so now you’re listening). Its castle-like exterior will lure in your inner child and the huge range of beers will keep any stag group occupied all day and night. It’s a great place to spend the afternoon and is widely regarded as an excellent 'warm up' before you head over to the Temple Bar area.


Dublin Castle

Dame St, Dublin 2, Ireland

Dublin Castle

Dating back to the 13th century, on the site of a Viking settlement, Dublin Castle is an impressive building, with six iconic towers to its name. It’s under €5 to get in, making it one of the cheaper Dublin tourist attractions – leaving plenty cash left in your stag do drinking fund. Plus, as it’s just on the outskirts of the Temple Bar, you won’t have to walk far from the very best Dublin bars to tick this one off your list.


Kilmainham Gaol

Inchicore Rd, Kilmainham, Dublin 8, D08 RK28, Ireland

Kilmainham Gaol

A former prison may not be the first thing you think of when you think ‘stag do’, but this one is pretty cool. Structurally, the building is very interesting and has been used as the set for several movies and even the BBC drama, Ripper Street. Now a museum, this place has housed some pretty famous crooks, including the likes of Irish revolutionaries, who were imprisoned and executed here.


St. Stephen’s Green

St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2, Ireland

St. Stephen’s Green

Located in the very centre of Dublin, St. Stephen’s Green offers a whopping nine hectares of plush green park land, ideal for a bit of chillaxing (read: sorting those hangovers out) after a heavy previous night. Just a stone’s throw away from Camden, Harcourt and Wexford streets (and all of their edgy, alternative bars), once you’ve recharged your batteries, you can get right back on it.


The Church Bar

Junction of Mary St. and Jervis St., Dublin 1, Dublin, D01YX64, Ireland

The Church Bar

Checking out the local architecture is all well and good, but you’re missing out on valuable drinking time on your stag do – which is why The Church bar and restaurant is the ideal haunt to kill two birds with one stone. Housed in an actual former church, this venue now houses a cafe, nightclub and fantastic outdoor BBQ area for those balmy Dublin nights. There’s a main bar, cellar bar and tower bar, all selling a wealth of craft beers and contemporary cocktails, leaving you lot with plenty of space to spread out and get your rounds in. Amen to that.


Little Museum of Dublin

15 St Stephen's Green, Dublin, Ireland

Little Museum of Dublin

This much-loved museum in central Dublin will give you a rundown of Dublin history from the 20th century, right up to date. So, if your Dublin knowledge is limited to Guinness and a ginger-bearded man in a green suit called Paddy, you might just learn a thing or two here. Plus, similarly to St. Stephen’s Green, it’s just seconds from the Camden, Harcourt and Wexford streets grid of bars – including the world famous music haunt, Whelan’s – meaning you won’t have to travel far for your next pint.

Getting to Dublin

Getting Around Dublin

Dublin is home to loud nightlife and, you’re in luck, as it’s easy to get to all the different parts (bars) in the city on foot.

Walk icon


Dublin is notoriously easy to walk around, even with Guinness thrown in. The Temple Bar is where you’ll spend most of your day (and night), and it’s all concentrated in one area – with small streets coming off the main ‘strip’. Put simply, it’s around 10 minutes from the start of the Temple Bar to the end, not accounting for those all-important pints along the way. Once you manage to pull yourself away from this drinking district, it’s a further 10 minute stroll to the likes of Grafton Street and the nearby bars and restaurants (we told you it was easy). If you stray even further from the Temple Bar – the bouncing Harcourt Street, with top beer gardens and massive clubs – is only 20 minutes away.

Bus icon


Dublin bus, the primary network for travel in the city, operates a network of 110 radial, cross-city and peripheral routes, as well as 18 routes in the city and Greater Dublin area. However, and unique to a capital, the Dublin bus doesn’t have a system-wide map available online, so you have to trust us… You can get a single ticket for the bus (€2 from Grafton Street to Pearse Street over the river), or a Leap – a pre-paid card – and that same journey will cost €1.50. For the length of your stag weekend, you could also purchase a 5 Day Rambler – at €31.50 – that gives you unlimited travel on the bus, and services including the Airlink and Xpresso.

Taxi icon


Taxi ranks are stationed all over Dublin. You’ve got the rank just outside of Dublin airport, as well as taxi desks within the Arrivals lounge, and even more in the centre of the city – Grafton Street, Temple Bar etc. You’ll also come across taxis cruising the streets, and if they have their lights on – flag them down as they’re available. If the lights are off, it’s time to move onto the next cab… Taxis are cheap in the centre and, as everything is so close, you’re not looking at a large fare from Harcourt to Temple Bar. Along the way, you’ll also pass the odd tuk tuk if you’re looking for a new form of travel.

Tram icon


The tram, or Luas as it’s known in Dublin, is the hugely popular light rail system in the centre – handling an average of 34 million passengers yearly. The system has 54 stations - over 36.5 kilometres of track – spread over two lines. The Green Line covers the entire south side of Dublin, following the old Harcourt Street railway line and heading into the centre – St Stephen’s Green is also on this line. The Red Line runs east-west through the north side of Dublin, crossing the River Liffey, and travels southwest. The two lines are also a 15 minute walk from each other, should you end up on the wrong one after visiting The Temple Bar. Tickets for Luas (the Irish word for ‘speed’) can be purchased at street side vending machines, with a seven day ticket covering eight zones at just €26.

Average Prices in Dublin

Not one of the cheapest stag do destinations in the world, Dublin might set you back a little more than its Eastern European counterparts. Here are the average prices you'll be paying once you're over there.

Dublin Weather

If we’re honest, Irish weather has a bit of a reputation… However, (you’ll be pleased to hear) Dublin is the driest place in Ireland, experiencing cool summers and mild winters. This city even reaches a whopping 19°C in July – pack those short shorts.
