I think it’s fair to say that the area of the city south of the Liffey has more pubs and has a bit more foot traffic than the Northside. As a result, it can be a bit harder to find late bars North of the Liffey. To make your night out a bit easier, we’ve put together this list of late bars. Bear in mind that some of these bars are only late at the weekend. We’ll include all the opening times we can to make it a bit clearer. A late bar typically serves until 2.30am and closes at 3am
McGowans is open late every night of the week. Good to know if you’re ever stuck.
The Church has a late bar on Fridays and Saturdays. Their cellar bar does some good cocktail deals on Fridays and it’s a great place for a dance.
Fibbers is Dublin’s best known rock bar, and they’re open late every night of the week.
