There are many great late night bar's throughout ireland each with thier own style of entertainment, no matter where you are staying there is alway's a great night out to be had just a stones throw away from you.


Cilck on any of the Photo's of the Clubs / Bars you like for full inofrmation about them.



Dublin been the Capital City has some great late bar's and clubs.


here is just a sample of some we believe to be of the very best on offer.


It's nice to look at, there are beautiful people, and there are stunning views of the city. You'll find a strong contingent of D4s, but they're sound for the most part.


Similar to the Black Door though, you'll get a resounding, "Not tonight, mate" if you try to get in past a certain hour.

If you like losing the run of yourself, and want a great cheap night out on Sunday, this is the only show in town.


They have 40% off all drinks on Sundays, can't really go wrong with that can you?

This is a gay club which only opens on Saturday nights, supporting GCN, in Copper Alley on Exchange Street.


Their Facebook states 'Mother takes it back to basics with a retro and

modern synth-pop dancefloor fusion', which in plain English means that while I don't know much of the music they play, it's always great fun and a nice crowd.

This is a Mexican-themed club on Baggot Street that replaced the Baggot Inn. It's designed to be a dance on the tables style venue, with a fake dingy dive bar kind of decor. It seems to be a pretty similar type of set up to Tonteria in London,


Tonteria seems to have queues out the door most nights, so the similarities are certainly not a bad thing.


Mainstream and everyone will have actually heard of the bands playing, but sometimes I like this familiarity.


The downside is that there's usually a huge queue at 2am, when you have more chance of getting into the Playboy mansion than in here,

Where the licence-holder feels that a child’s presence in the bar could reasonably be regarded as harmful to a child’s health, safety or welfare, then such a child is not allowed in the bar of that licensed premises, even if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

In a blink-and-you-would-miss-it door on Wellington Quay and down a short stairs.

Busy pace so go early as seating is hard to come by late on, Its easy to see why the place is so popular.

The cocktail and drinks menu is extensive and well put together. Something here for every drinker and if you're not sure what you want the well turned out bar staff give the impression they'd be more than happy to share their expert advice. 
Clientele were a good mix
