5. Dublin Tapas Trails

We've written about these guys before, but we just can't convey how great these guys are. €60 for a whole night of grazing and wine tasting. 

Also a way to find out about restaurants you've never visited before. Dreamy.

Think you need to venture out of Dublin to get your extreme sport fix?

The good people at Wakedock will allow you to get stuck into the waters of the Grand Canal, while also perfecting your flips 'n' shit.

8. Visit the Tea Garden

Get stuck into one of the more exotic places on the Quays for a change. 

Kick off your shoes, gather some mates and bask in the chilled vibes of the trendy spot. If you like drinking tea and chilling out - this one's for you.

9. Afternoon Art Tea @ The Merrion

Advertised as the most lavish afternoon tea in Dublin, this is an experience only worthy of a special occasion.

While afternoon tea is a treat all on its own, Afternoon Art Tea is something else. Treat yourself to a slice of 19th or 20th century art served on fine china with miniature sweet creations inspired by the work of J.B Yeats, William Scott, Louis Le Brocquy and others.



10. Drag show @ Pantibar

Our Panti became famous overnight, as did her humble abode, with even the likes of Enda Kenny gracing the Capel Street haunt. 

The shows are fantastic and the drinks promos are also deadly - if you're looking for a wild night, this is definitely your best bet

11. Cocktails @ Vintage Cocktail Club

An intentionally word-of-mouth establishment, this speakeasy is ideal for the suave cocktail drinker of you. 

Designed in the style of a 1940s speakeasy, this incredibly cool spot is perfect for retro lovers and jazz enthusiasts. Although, beware, it is strictly over 23s.

Now, all you have to do is choose.
