After the meeting in Dublin

Adrienne Clarke, Head of Conference Sales of The Convention Centre Dublin

My favourite places:
Top three restaurants

Fire Restaurant: The best of local Irish produce, great atmosphere and reasonable prices in the heart of the city centre.

The Pig's Ear: Good, honest, Irish fare with a modern touch, in relaxed informal surroundings.

Brasserie Sixty6: Stylish and busy atmosphere, innovative yet accessible menu with great service.

Top three bars

Rooftop Lounge at The Marker: Watch the sunset behind the city skyline and enjoy cocktails under the stars, just a stone’s throw from The CCD!

O’Donoghue’s Pub: Intimate, lively pub famous for its Irish traditional music and great craic!

Café en Seine: Stunning art deco interior, relaxed café by day, opulent cocktail bar by night, excellent jazz brunch on Sundays.

Top three hot spots

For an evening of theatrical delight, catch the latest ballet, opera, play or musical performance at The Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, in our neighbouring Grand Canal Dock area.

Walk the famous Temple Bar area, shop in the designer market at Cow’s Lane and soak up some Irish traditional music while sampling some of Dublin’s finest Guinness.

Learn how to pull the perfect pint and get a great panoramic view of the city at one of the city’s top tourist attractions, the Guinness Storehouse.
