Pub Of The Week: This George’s Street Spot Boasts A Genuine Old School Dublin Pub Vibe

James Fenton

Summer in the city is coming to an end, but there’s still a stretch of long late-summer evenings ahead of us to look forward to.

There’s no better place to soak up the remainder of the summer (and maybe even an Indian summer if we’re lucky) than one of the city’s many pubs and beer gardens.

We’ve teamed up with 1664 Blanc to suss out the best Dublin spots to do just that.

What’s 1664 Blanc you ask? It’s the perfect late-summer/early-Autumn treat. Light and fruity with a refreshing taste, pop a slice of lemon or orange in there for a signature serve and you’ve got yourself a long, cool drink.

Essentially, if you’re a cider drinker this is the beer for you. Light tasting with a fruity finish, it’s finally a beer that you’ll want to try. Now we just need to find a stellar spot to enjoy it.

Right in the heart of the city lies a pub where colleagues have gathered to discuss the day’s events for generations.

Hogans on George’s Street is primely-located for those used to spending the best part of their day in the city and it’s the perfect spot to spend the evening in the company of friends and workmates.

Its unique outdoor area is as unconventional as it is charming. Every evening, crowds from inside Hogans spill out onto Fade Street, allowing customers to enjoy their hard-earned drink while simultaneously taking in the atmosphere of the city.

When the sun stays out long into the evening, there’s no better place to enjoy a 1664 Blanc while leaving the issues of the office behind you until the next morning.

That’s not to say that all the fun of Hogans is restricted to the outside area. Inside, you’ll find a pub with a real old-school Dublin atmosphere and an ample selection of comfortable seating.

High stools line the bar and with tables and comfy sofa alongside the walls, there’s plenty of floor space left to take up for those in big groups.

At Hogans, a great selection of alternative music plays long into the night, providing the perfect opportunity to see your colleagues let loose in a way you wouldn’t see in the office.

A fine spot to enjoy a 1664 Blanc, don’t you think?
