We all want a bit of peace and quiet from time to time. But that’s harder to find in this city than you’d think.
Should you be in the mood to have a few private drinks without bumping everyone you’ve ever known (and their mam), well then, we know just the places.
You’re more than welcome.
1. The Square Ball
A little outside of the city centre, this place serves unreal food – not your typical pub grub.
They’ve an enormous range of cool beers on tap – a serious hideaway.
2. The Slipper
This spot out in Glasnevin, once known as Matt Weldons, is nice and reclusive.
And the drink ain’t ‘spense either.
3. Johny Rush’s
A central, and extremely cheap, spot.
Hide yourself away in the back of this South William Street bar with a €20 bottle of prosecco and you’ll be laughin’.
4. VCC — Temple Bar
The Vintage Cocktail Club is so dark that you won’t know your arse from your elbow.
Just blow out the candle on your table, sink back into your chair and be a fly on the wall.
5. P. Mac’s — Stephen Street Lower
Book a booth and you’ll never be seen through the pleated glass.
6. The Temple Bar
Is so filled with tourists that the likelihood of you actually seeing someone you know is quite slim.
7. 57 The Headline — Clanbrassil Street Lower
One of our favourite spots for a quiet drink.
Tuck yourself away into a corner and sup on a perfect G&T or one of their extensive craft beers.
Go forth and be anonymous.
