6 must-visit places in Dublin for beer lovers

Dublin is a beautiful city, famous for its beers, especially Guinness. Here are six suggestions of pubs that you can’t miss during your visit to the Irish capital.

1. The Merchant Arch

The Merchant Arch is more popular with locals, but less with tourists. Of course this is a not bad because it is much less crowded than others. There is always live music which creates the typical Irish atmosphere. Look for it because it is not on the main street. Here you can drink Guinness and eat real authentic Irish food. But the best thing about this pub is definitely the view on the Ha ‘Penny Bridge (half penny bridge), so called because of the toll that was required to go beyond it in the past. One of the most known bridges in the city, its real name is actually Liffey Bridge.   → The Merchant Arch

2. The Church Bar

Church Bar is undoubtedly the most original pub in Dublin. It is located in a deconsecrated church, the St Mary’s Church. From the outside it looks like a simple church, but the interior is a real surprise! The special location makes it a very stylish and very busy pub. The prices are slightly higher than average, but this is quite normal because of the pub’s unique story.
What more could you ask for than drinking a beer in the backgrounds of the windows of a church?  →  Church bar

3. Temple Bar

Temple Bar is a top destination for tourists in Dublin, in fact, it is located in the popular namesake district which is the heart of city nightlife. Although it is a must see for anyone visiting the Irish capital, it’s too crowded to enjoy a true pint of guinness. Anyway it’s worth a visit and you can’t miss a picture at the table with James Joyce. →  Temple bar

4. Porter House

In the same district of Temple Bar you find Porter House, a pub chain that produces their own beers. In fact, in this bar you won’t find famous beers by brewer giants such as Guinness and Murphy’s, but the quality is similar. As always, the live music, the smells and the colors are those of the typical Irish atmosphere. → Porter House

5. Guinness Storehouse

Among the places that a beer lover should visit in Dublin, is definitely the legendary Guinness storehouse. The factory-museum, which attracts 1 million visitors per year, has seven floors and offers a guided tour to discover the history and production of this beer. At the end of the tour don’t miss the Guinness tasting in the Gravity Bar, where you can have a picturesque, 360 degree view of the Irish capital. But first, stop at the fourth floor to the “Guinness Academy” where you will be taught the six-step ritual to pour the perfect pint.→ Guinness

6. Smithwick’s experience

And finally is the Smithwick’s experience that is actually located in Kilkenny, about an hour and a half away from Dublin. As with the Guinness storehouse, Smithwicks is a factory, museum and pub at the same time. In fact, here you can visit the museum to discover the history and anecdotes of this beer. At the end of the tour, escape to the pub where you’ll have the chance to taste three different flavors with the tasting package. This is a special feature compared to the Guinness that provides a single type of beer, although for me the best si still the original Smithwick beer. All of this, with an interesting explanation by a beer sommelier. Experience it for yourself. → Smithwick’s experience
