Just a few questions, arriving in 5 weeks !!

Does it cost more for alcohol at a pub in Temple Bar than in a local pub (being non tourist) ?

We are staying at The Jurys Inn on Parnell Street, Are there any good pubs around this area ?

Is their any good places for breakfast and that is reasonable around this area ?

Is their good access to buses trams and train stations in this area ?

How would we get to The Guinness brewery from here ?

Thanks in advance !

The answer is yes to everything!

Temple Bar prices are dearer than local pubs.

You have plenty of pubs around you, the very closest ones may not be the best pubs in Ireland.Conway's you'll see to your right when you come out of your hotel is across from one of Dublin's largest maternity hospitals so you may see expectant/celebratory fathers in there!

O'Connell St is just a little further on and is Dublin's main thoroughfare.It has the Dublin Bus HA on it for any transport info you require.There are pubs most everywhere in the city you won't ever have far to walk.

Directly across the street from your hotel is the Kingfisher Restaurant, open all day, always seems popular.

Guineas is walkable but maybe best to catch a bus, depending on weather.

Hi, What are the average drink prices in euro's at present? (Guiness,Lager etc)

I was last in Dublin 2 years ago, have drink and food prices increased due to the rise in Vat?

Regards

It depends on where you drink but expect tp pay around €4.50 for a pint.

I think Conways is closed down. It lloks very dark and forlorn anytime I pass it. I agree with your recommendation for the Kingfisher brekkie. Best cholesterol in Dublin!

How much of a difference is it between the price of a beer in a tourist pub compared to a non tourist pub ?

Thanks in advance !

I found a 'non-tourist' pub, not a million miles away from your hotel location.

Pint of stout or Guinness Euro 4.20. Pints of lager range from Euro 4.50 to Euro 4.70.

See if anything here helps:

Please be aware, some of the locations of 'non-tourist' might get you a cheaper drink. However, it might not be wise to be in those surroundings, late night.

In Cafe en Seine recently I paid €6 for a pint of Heineken after 11pm, this isn't necessarily a tourist pub but is considered one of the more expensive pubs in Dublin, I'd expect Temple Bar touristy type pubs to be of a comparable price. In contrast I also had a pint of Heineken in the pub outside the grounds of Drogheda United FC last November and it was €4, but this pub wouldn't really be considered popular, even in this small town approx 30 miles from Dublin!

If you budget for around €5 per pint you can't really go too wrong, this would be what I would usually pay in most average pubs!

The link off Uasal is a bit out of date. I did hear of a price comparison web page being put together by Dublin publicans but have not been able to find it anywhere.

Sorry, I stand corrected re Conway's.

It was always difficult to tell, even when it WAS open!
