Wexford / Harcourt / Camden Street Stag Do Guide - Dublin

Stag Nightlife Guide to Wexford/Harcourt/Camden Street

Top Reasons to Visit Wexford/Harcourt/Camden Street
Bars - The bars are seriously diverse; craft beer pubs, historic venues, underground clubs and beer gardens line the streets
Restaurants - There’s no better way to cure a hangover than with pub grub, and this ‘mile’ has it in spades
Music - Dublin’s coolest bands – including international names such as Ed Sheeran – play around these parts to sell-out crowds
Shopping - The only shopping you’ll be doing round here will be pints… Our kind of stag do
Art - You’ve got buskers lining the streets and a heavy population of students. That’s enough art for us

This area is geared towards the locals, packed with students and young professionals. In fact, Dublin is home to Europe’s youngest, with 50% of the entire population under 25 years, and most of them celebrate around these streets.

Wexford is the more alternative (pack those checked shirts and stick-on beards), hosting eclectic venues that host even bigger bands (along with Ed Sheeran). Camden is set down the road from Wexford, and is often referred to as the ‘Camden Mile’. No less than two dozen bars call this ‘mile’ home, packed full of Dubliners, craft beers, the requisite live music and even one of the most significant pubs in the city. It has its own Wikipedia page… Harcourt Street is a little further down from Camden - still just a four minute walk from Wexford – and boasts some of our favourite hotels and adjoining clubs. Those clubs also feature top beer gardens that spill out into the streets in summer.

Top 10 Stag Do Pubs, Bars and Clubs in Wexford/Harcourt/Camden Street

Wexford, Harcourt and Camden are the cooler older brothers to the Temple Bar. They are just as busy, with a more local and alternative crowd - celebrating way into the night.

25 Wexford St, Dublin 2

A band performing on stage at Whelan's

Wail loud for Whelan’s. You will be wailing along with biggest musicians and bands for decades. Ed Sheeran, Bloc Party and our favourite Yorkshire lads, Arctic Monkeys, have all performed on the big stage. That stage has even been used on the set of many films, so you’ll be in good company. 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 students. Although, the club is that much of an icon – it attracts anyone in their 20s/30s/40s/50s and 60s.

The sports bar, also host to the hotel’s famous breakfast in the morning, is, naturally, your first stop – boasting 20 huge screens for live sports. The basement club has a top DJ on every weekend and draws in the largest amount of people on a weekend. However, you’ve seen nothing yet until you step into the beer garden. The all-weather terrace is massive, with a capacity for 500.

Exterior of The Bleeding Horse

You want history on your stag do? Course you don’t, but you’ve got it at The Bleeding Horse. As one of the city’s oldest pubs, dating all the way back to 1649, this place has been making waves for centuries. It’s reminiscent of the Vikings set (for anyone who watches the show), with high ceilings, exposed timbers and a medieval-style banqueting hall. Along with all of that, it also has a Wikipedia page – this is definitely one for the history books.

Camden Exchange is a new-age inspired pub, a quirky addition to the already bursting Dublin pub scene. This building is well known around the capital as the old National Bank premises, and is another venue used as a filming location. Despite its traditional past, this eclectic pub is modern. So modern, in fact, that it has its own currency. Camden currency can be redeemed for offers, which run on a weekly basis, and you can check on social media for those offers. The pub serves all the requisites for a 21st century bar; craft beer, cask ales, street food and even hosts an artisan foodie market.

05. The Bernard Shaw

11-12 Richmond St S, Dublin 2

People sat in the beer garden of The Bernard Shaw

The Bernard Shaw is part of Dublin’s ‘hipsterdom’, rapidly taking over the city. It’s so popular that it’s regarded as the original hipster, and the reason growing a beard and checked shirts in Dublin are cool. Bernard is as quirky as he is popular, with the club a mix of venues from the likes of Berlin, Amsterdam and North London. The place is so ironic; the double decker bus – where you can eat tasty pizzas on the top deck – is relatively tame. However, if the bus seats don’t entice you, the rest of the beer garden will, regularly hosting flea markets (hipster) and boasting a pool table for when the Dublin sun is shining.
