Sometimes a trip to Magaluf or Benidorm just isn’t what you envisioned for your hen party. Your ladies and you want to be wined, dined and ready to leave with fantastic memories, not hangovers…
We love a glass of champagne, and where better to experience them then at these Dublin hot spots
Sophie’s will take your breath away. After making it past the adult-sized swings, you will have 360-degree views of Dublin. There’s an extensive list of cocktails, but champagne is all you’ll need.
Food Recommendation: The caprese salad of burrata, semi-dried heirloom tomatoes, balsamic pearls, crispy pancetta & pesto.
The Mint Bar
If you’re staying at the classically beautiful The Westin Hotel, you must pay a visit to The Mint Bar. It has a prohibition speakeasy vibe being situated in the basement of the hotel. Wandering through the luxurious interior and let the bartenders, who have won European cocktail competitions, look after you. This is the place to step away from the Veuve and treat yourself to the twelves roses cocktail.
Hugo’s presents a lovely chance to nibble some of the finest food in Dublin.
Food Recommendation: The Italian charcuterie board OR the goat cheese curd on brioche toast with charred poached pear, walnuts and truffle honey
Fade Street Social
If the weather is on your side, make your way over to Fade Street Social. Its roof-top location and extensive champagne menu will entice you to settle for the entire night. However, it’s the tapas you will ultimately want to stay for.
