A Boozy Afternoon in Dublin, Ireland

Ireland, Dublin Guide (B): A Boozy Afternoon in Dublin, Ireland

You can’t go to Ireland and not drink at least one pint (or 10) a day. It’s not only frowned upon, but almost illegal around there (Ok, maybe not illegal). The hubby and I visited Ireland a couple of years back and being a super savvy planner, I booked our hotel in the Smithfield area of town, aka right across from the Old Jameson Distillery! Totally on purpose of course. Now since Saint Patrick’s day is right around the corner, I have decided to help you get in the spirit of the festivities, by listing some cool bars and pubs and how we spent a educational and boozy afternoon in Dublin Ireland:

Hey, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere right? This is the location of the original Bow Street distillery established in 1780. John Jameson took over ownership and began expansion in 1810. The Jameson Irish Whiskey we know today was produced and distilled at the Bow Street distillery in the Smithfield neighborhood in Dublin, Ireland until 1971. The business was moved out of Dublin and into Midleton, County Cork, Ireland where production is currently located. Today the Old Jameson Distillery location is a kind of whiskey museum, where you can take a tour and learn all about the whiskey making process; from harvesting the grains to taste testing some delicious Irish whiskey. When looking down on the lobby floor, you can see some of the original vats and barrels where the whiskey was stored and aged. There’s also an awesome bar in the lobby area that serves up some fantastic craft cocktails. So sit back, order a drink and enjoy the day. Or hurry to the next spot on the list…(Confession: I’m sorry I don’t have as many awesome photos as I would like from this trip because at some point, I elbowed the hard drive straight to the floor and the hubby could not restore all the photos…cry emoji) ......
