There isn’t really a specific “gay” neighbourhood in Dublin, but you’ll find clusters of LGBTI+-friendly venues on Capel Street, Parliament Street and South Great George’s Street.
The social scene on Capel Street revolves around Panti Bar. Owned by Dublin’s superhero drag queen, Panti Bliss, this venue is now an institution (even Ireland’s Taoiseach – Prime Minister – has visited). It’s also a fab place to base yourself to enjoy some of what this part of Dublin has to offer, including the hip café Brother Hubbard for coffee, brunch and lunch, and Musashi for sushi and noodles.
Across the Liffey, and South Great George’s Street boasts The George, while Street 66 on Parliament Street offers an elegant space with art-lined walls and great food.
With an ever-evolving restaurant scene, stylish hotels, great museums and galleries and big club nights, Dublin mixes endless energy with an off-kilter sense of fun.
Bring it on.
