5 tips for a night out in Ireland

Sponsored Post¦ Ahh, the beautiful emerald isle! Ireland is an amazing country with great people and there’s a lot of fun to be had. It’s no secret that a night out in Ireland is bound to be absolutely brilliant and likely provide you with anecdotes for years to come. Whether you’re local or on holiday/vacation, here are some tips to help you and your friends or family make the most of Ireland’s lively nightlife.

1. Decide Where to Go

It might sound obvious, but it’s good to have a look online or get some recommendations via word of mouth before you decide where to go. You don’t want to end up in a pub or club that is rubbish in comparison to one you could have gone to a few streets over.

Also, remember to go to the fancy cocktail bar first so you enjoy the more expensive drinks you buy, then move onto the place with cheaper drinks and shots later!

2. Line Your Stomach

It’s always important to make sure you eat a good meal before you go on a night out. It’s much healthier than just having a liquid dinner! Besides, having a delicious dinner before dancing the night away is part of the fun. It’s a great way to have a catch up before you find yourselves not being able to hear each other over the music on the dancefloor.

In fact, why not make the meal the night out? You can find private group dining locations on Square Meal IE – perfect for celebrations and when you feel like treating yourselves!

3. Get Dressed Up

While other places around the globe may have a more casual vibe, a night out in Ireland requires you to dress up. This is an opportunity to wear the smartest and sassiest clothes in your wardrobe. Make sure you leave the trainers at home and put your smart shoes on!

4. Don’t Embarrass Yourself

I mean, this one should go without saying. However, if you’re not Irish there are some definite no-nos. Don’t, under any circumstances do these, no matter how tempted you are under the influence of alcohol!

Don’t talk about leprechauns. Don’t try to talk to people in an Irish accent. But perhaps most important, definitely do not say “top o’ the morning to ya”. Nobody and I mean NOBODY says that, okay?

5. Make Sure You’re in the Right Place

If you’re visiting from abroad and interested in experiencing Ireland’s nightlife, make sure you’re in the right place for you. If you want to go on the best pub crawl ever, go to Kilkenny. This medieval town arguably has THE best nightlife in all of Ireland. If you want a more beachy/surfer/fishing vibe, Dingle in Co. Kerry, Bundoran in Co. Donegal or Lahinch in Co. Clare could be the place to go. Whether it’s an amazing nightclub, a family friendly place or a traditional night out you’re looking for, there is somewhere in Ireland perfect for you.
