Themed Pubs Tips (8)

The Long Stone: Combined Irish and Viking Theme Pub/Restaurant

In advance of my trip to Ireland, I posted a notice for an informal VT meeting at the Long Stone in Dublin. The Long Stone is a large pub/restaurant in the Trinity College area. The pub has a combined Irish and Viking theme. Its most distinctive feature is the unique fireplace -- a sculpture of Balder, the Viking God of Light and Warmth.

The meeting was on a Wednesday night -- my first in Ireland. Some of the folks who signed up couldn't make it. In the end, four people attended the meeting: wise23girl (Margaret who was visiting from Buderim, Australia), Krumel (Birgit who is a German native living in a Dublin suburb), annemariebyrne (Anne Marie who is an Irish native living in Dublin), and myself.

Margaret brought a small Virtual Tourist flag to the meeting. In addition, Margaret brought some photos of VT members who told her that they wanted to attend the meeting, but couldn't make it because they weren't in the Dublin area.

We first met at the bar for drinks -- and later moved to a table in the restaurant for dinner. During the meeting, I had a couple of pints of Guinness -- and cod and chips for dinner.

The Long Stone is a nice spot for a meeting -- lots of room and not too loud. Also, our waitress was gracious enough to take some photos of our group.

Themed Pubs: Long Stone Pub

The Nordic/Scandanavian themed Pub, named after the Long Stone that the Viking laid when they arrived in Dublin.

A great, busy pub filled with Dubliners and tourists alike. Have a Guinness they are cheap, I think about 3 euros... The fireplace in the back is something to see, it's in the shape of an old viking God's face. Someone told us that it was Balder, the God of warmth and light..

Dress Code None..

Themed Pubs: Cheap Drink.....

On the campus of Trinity College they have a pub with the cheapest drink in Dublin.
I have been all over this place and still have not seen anything cheaper then here. I know its in one of the back corners.
This place is great for all of us that are young and love to have fun and be crazy. Tuns of people sitting around outside smoking hash have a good laugh and lots of drinks.

Various: The Aussie Invasion!

Ok, I've just noticed that there are quite a number of Australian-themed bars & eateries popping up around Dublin....maybe it's down to Irish people nostalgic for Oz after the almost-obligatory "time-out" 1 year visa down under.
There is "Down Under" off Stephens Green - Excellent Cocktails. €5 entry at weekends.
The Outback on Parnell st - have not tried it yet, but it's only a matter of time *grin*
and how I could I forget the Australian Ice Cream Parlour on Abbey St! Mmmmmmmmm!!!! :-)

Dress Code Casual.
