With a pub on every corner, a pint of Guinness is never too far away. No matter what time of year you visit, there is always something to do and enjoy and you’ll always be welcomed with open arms. Embrace the cities love for concerts, gigs and drinking and you literally can’t go wrong. Taking a trip to the famous Guinness storehouse is a must for a stag do so you can enjoy learning facts on how it’s made as well as sampling some of for yourself.
