After a week spent working hard (or at least pretending to) there’s nothing better than letting your hair down over a few drinks with mates at the weekend.

You don’t need to wait until the sun goes down though as some of the best craic in a pub can be had during the day. Whether you fancy soaking up the sun in a beer garden or watching a bit of sport, catching up with the gang in one of Dublin’s finest establishments is a Saturday well-spent.

Here our some of our favourite spots around town for those well-earned daytime drinks.

1. Mulligan’s

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle on Poolbeg Street, this place has seen many a famous face pass through its doors.

 

2. The Long Hall

Moving over to George’s Street and one of the city’s most famous spots. The Guinness goes down well and the atmosphere is always great.
