In all of Ireland, Dublin has the most pubs, bars, and speakeasies to choose from. Any type of theme or atmosphere you’re looking for can be found in this capital city flowing with drinks. Our first Dublin stop was to the much acclaimed Peruke & Periwig. This little hole in the wall is a dark rustic room on the lower level for walk ins reminiscent of a castle dungeon mixed with a knights of templar secret pub. While this level is plenty enjoyable for the drinks alone, to truly experience P&P you need to make a reservation to be seated upstairs.
In two upper levels you will find Victorian lairs full of pink crushed velvet, walls of bookshelves and mirrors, and an opulence fit for any royalty. These areas are table service by reservation only. Each level has its own bar and tender to supply libations with ease.
Peruke & Periwig had our favorite cocktails of the entire trip. The Cold S’mores libation was a heavenly liquid dessert I could drink every day. The bartender made the custom pink marshmallow vodka herself that day and of course flambeed a few marshmallows on top for garnish. We also ordered a refreshing Back in Black which took a whiskey mule to a new level with flavors of cinnamon and pear. This is the bar we will return to on any trip to Dublin.
