Mulled wine is one of those 'things' in life that grows on you the older you get...

With the dark, cold and wintery evenings coming in thick and fast, there's nothing like curling up in a cosy pub snug with a mug of mulled wine in hand. We're imagining the wall of heat coming from an open fire, the cracked paint of a Christmas scene on the window, the hum of constant chatter, the sound of a local lad with his guitar in corner and that disgusting yet comforting smell of stale beer - this is the perfect pub.

Johnnie Foxes Pub, Glencullen

Mulled wine season is in full swing at Johnnie Foxes, and no better place to sit back and enjoy the view over a warming glass.

Urbanity, Smithfield

Mulled wine with cinnamon and clementines, and a sweet hit of vanilla to balance it all out.


Bestseller, Dawson Street 

Ideally located for a post-Christmas shopping tipple.

Barrow Market & Margadh

Barrow Market is located on Upper Grand Canal Street and it's sister cafe Margadh on Harbour Road in Howth. Their warming mulled wine is available by the glass or takeaway.

Olyesa's Wine Bar, Exchequer Street

One of Dublin's prime people watching spots has you covered if you're looking to enjoy a quiet muller with a pal in the last few days before Christmas.



Old Street, Malahide

Being in Malahide Village during Christmas is already cute and festive enough, the only thing needed to complete the aesthetic is a cup of the good stuff to warm your wee hands.

Phoenix Cafe, Phoenix Park

A ramble through the park on the lookout for (rein)deer can only be improved by a fragrant mulled wine and a mincer on the side.


Restaurant 104, Drumcondra

Sit in and get cosy or grab to go on your way home from pressie shopping, either way this fragrant tipple from 104 is a delight.
