Dublin's most famous export is definitely Guinness. However this mystical dark drink was influenced from a type of beer called 'Porter'. The Porterhouse on the outskirts of the Temple Bar area is the perfect place too try some different varieties. The interior is decorated with old copper stills, wooden furniture and open fireplaces. This makes for a cosy, warm atmosphere to have a drink. The Porterhouse brew their own varieties, so the choice is great and they are all technically homemade. If the dark stuff is not your tipple, then they provide light ales, lagers and the usual wine and spirits too.
Welcome to Mexico. . . . . We mean Dublin. Sorry, it is very easy to get mixed up when you step into '777'. The discrete and unassuming building front, gives nothing away. Inside though is a whole world of tequila and fresh margaritas! The large wall behind the bar is covered in white tiles, in the middle is a tile mosaic of a Mexian tattoo style love scene. The words "I love you 1,000 times" are written on it. Well we love this place 1,000 times and more. The house party music, rows of bar stools at the bar and cool decor make the atmosphere here super fun and a great party. Dancing on the bar is mandatory!
