P. Mac's is the ultimate craft beer bar in Dublin. A cosy, beautiful bar filled with warm candles and dark wood, this place offers more than 100 types of beer to choose from with 30 craft beers always on tap. It's little wonder that they won craft bar of the year back in 2017.

Lacking mainstream beers, the Temple Bar instead provides a great selection of Irish craft beers including pale lagers, IPAs, and red ales. International crafts are also an option if you want to get out of your comfort zone.

While Riot does serve up some pretty wicked cocktails, their craft beer selection should be far from ignored. Always a rotational tap, they offer plenty of specials, from IPAs through to chocolate-y stouts, all of which change regularly.
