The Dingle Whiskey bar
If you’re having a business meeting and are looking for a relaxed atmosphere, a warm welcome combined with a good drink, then the Dingle Whiskey bar in Nassau street must be it. Down in Dingle, thousands of barrels of Whiskey are aging in cherry, port and bourbon casks and those are decorating the entrance of this bar.

GAA is the biggest sporting association in Ireland. This is a shout-out to all business travelers out there, whether male or female: A Gaelic football match in Dublin should not be missed. How about a visit to Croke Park? Book your premium level tickets and do your business right above the field. Every Summer, from May to September, the games catch the Irish population’s attention and the atmosphere, sitting in the middle of thousands of people, is incredible each year.
Hugh Lane Gallery
People often forget about this place although it has some great pieces of modern art to offer such as the Francis Bacon Studio. Featuring art from the 19th and 20th century, it is definitely worth a visit. Situated right above O’Connell street, it is easily accessible and the admission is free. While on business trips, this is certainly something different from the busy working life. Besides, it makes you walk along O’Connell street and its many monuments.
