Everywhere I go seems to be full of annoying little drunken 18 year olds....anyone got any advice on where 25 - 30/35 year olds socialise in Dublin city?
Hogans on George's Street.
Any of the pubs down and off Dawson St attract a more mature crowd:
Cafe En Seine
As Clarebear said, Hogans... although it can be full of students around the college terms.
The Village is also a good one. Ri'Ra too.
Plenty of places really... hope you find some good ones
Best keep away from local college haunts.
Mulligans on Poolbeg Street an old favourite of mine before I moved to Australia. Attracts a lot of intellectual types such as writers and editors long after the glory days of the Irish Press which was next door.
I agree with all the above, D2 on harcourt street seems to be developing a much older clientel aswell..
All you old people
just u wait a few years then u'll want a place like us too...
C\W complementry zimmer frames and sit down toilets
Only 23, but sick of the usual 18 year old crap. Prefer a more mature crowd.
Isn't Cafe En Seine full of posers though??
yes and over priced.... however it s like all places, if you have a good crowd with you then it doesnt matter
Ryans in Parkgate Street. One of the best in Dublin
Yeah SamSara on Dawson Street is fast becoming one of my favourite Dublin pubs. Bit pricey but I really like the crowd.
Thomas Reades on Dame St. is a good spot. You have The Oak late bar and dance floor downstairs aswell. I've been going there a bit recently, and never see a young crowd. It's generally 23+, and I'm 28.
Reads is a good auld spot alright and the music downstairs, if a bit loud is class alot of the time, wouldn't be suited to the younger 'generation'.
Where's The Bailey?
