Nightlife in Dublin

Earthy traditional bars cluster around Trinity College and Temple Bar. But there's more to Dublin than pints of Guinness, including the Wine Cellar, cocktails at sculpture–filled Café en Seine and club nights at POD. North of the river, musicians play informal sessions at Cobblestone and jazz fans opt for JJ Smyth's. All venues are smoke free. Most bars close at 11.30pm (some at 2am at weekends), and clubs around 4am.
