It's Friday, the storm has passed - and it's just a few short hours before you're free to enjoy it.
We've picked out five of the best spots to grab a drink and watch the world go by.
Get a bird's-eye view bang in the centre of Ranelagh. Make a beeline for the upstairs terrace and hover until a seat opens up. Make sure you perch between the bushes to get the best view of the bustling village below. Yep, could not sound creepier if we tried.
Get yourself tucked in under the canopy out front with a pint and watch one of the busiest streets in Dublin in action. Later on, head inside for some board games to kick off your weekend with some good, clean fun.
One of the best spots in the city to sit with your back to the wall and watch the city go by. It's one of the few places people go with the sole intent to people-watch, so don't be ashamed to tell someone they're blocking your view.

If you like people watching, our terrace is the perfect place to enjoy a good drink and watch busy Dublin scurry by ???????? • • • #baileybar #thebailey #thebaileybar #baileybarcafe #cafe #pub #dublinbar #dublinpub #irishbar #irishcafe #irishpub #food #irishfood #dublinfood #cocktail #drinks #dukestreet #dukest #lunch #dinner #countydublin #dublincitycenter #wine #whiskey #beer #hotdrinks
Grogans, South William St
Buskers, tourists, shoppers - on a day like today, this street will be packed with action and all sorts of distraction. Put the phone away, and enjoy.
If you'd rather stay indoors, nab a window seat in one of Dublin's oldest and most-loved pubs and while away the hours.
