If there’s one thing Dublin is known for, it’s pubs. While it isn’t quite true that you can’t cross the city without walking past one – that myth was debunked a couple of years back – there sure are a lot of pints to be had here. That familiar smell of dated wood and leather, the glossy red Victorian ceilings, lines of taps offering everything from Guinness to obscure IPAs: your traditional Dublin pub oozes time-worn comfort (and indulgence). Nothing sums it up better than the ‘snug’ – this small enclosed seating area is usually found at the front of the pub, and has its own entrance, as well as a hatch to the bar, meaning you can order a drink without even having to face the real world. Feeling thirsty after a day out exploring this city’s marvellous attractions? Then hunker down at one of these totally brilliant pubs in Dublin.
