There is a very little doubt that if you are visiting Dublin that you won’t want to take in a pub or two even if you are a non-drinker. You will find that there is just something about the atmosphere of these venues that make one feel excited and intrigued. If you want to be sure that you fit in and don’t appear to be too much like a tourist then here are a few tips to help you achieve that.
Surely you will want to tell friends back home that you enjoyed a Guinness while pub visiting in Dublin. So when you are ready to order you just need to tell the barman that you would like a pint. You don’t need to say make it Guinness because that will be automatic unless you say otherwise. Just in case you are watching your alcohol consumption you can easily ask for a half pint.
Just because you are in a Dublin pub there is no rule that says you must consume an alcoholic beverage. You can order a soda or water, or a favorite which is Bulmer’s. This is a sweet cider that has a sparkle to it and comes in a variety of flavors.
Dressing the part
One of the biggest confusions that sets in with visitors is what to wear to a Dublin pub. It is all going to depend on the time of day that you are making your pub visit. If its in the afternoon then casual wear will work just fine. The evening attire is a little more demanding meaning it should be a little dressier but not over the top. If you are going to follow your pub visit with a Irish club visit then you will want to dress up a little more which should fit in both with the pub scene and the club scene.
