Fun-packed Dublin Nightlife
Going out and having a good time is one of the best parts of the university experience. And Dublin is up there with the best when it comes to delivering that friendly party atmosphere. Thanks to legendary clubs such as Copper Face Jacks, Krystle and more, Dublin has an endless supply of great nights out, no matter what kind of music gets you on the dance floor.
Brighten up your days and social feeds with trips to some of Dublin’s most beautiful areas. Cross the cast iron Ha’Penny bridge to get a perfect view of the River Liffey in the day or go in the evening for a perfect photo opportunity as the lamps flicker into life. Alternatively, get closer to nature at Phoenix Park. Here you’ll find acres and acres of lush landscape, as well as friendly herds of deer and other local wildlife. There’s no better place to relax and take a break from your studies.
Embracing Dublin culture means getting a first-hand look at the national sports, such as traditional Gaelic hurling matches on a weekend. Pick up tickets and be ready to be on the edge of your seat at Croke Park and soak up that exciting stadium energy. You’ll also find high-octane games of Gaelic football and soccer organised on a regular basis as well. Whether you want to simply watch or give it a go yourself – there are clubs dotted about the city that are always welcoming to newcomers. Like the old saying goes, when in Dublin do as the Dubliners do.
World Famous Drinks
It’s impossible to mention Dublin without bringing up those two iconic drinks brands, Guinness and Jameson. Guinness offer a three hour tour of their brewery where you can experience every step that goes into creating their famous pints of rich, dark ale. The Guinness Storehouse has a lot more to offer too, including their own bar, restaurant and museum. Whisky lovers will love the Jameson Distillery on bustling Bow Street, which offers all kinds of group-friendly events, including tours and tastings. And of course, you’ll be able to sample both of these at Dublin’s many pubs and bars, for an authentic glimpse into Dublin life.
