If you’re serious cocktail drinkers, your hen party needs to go to the Vintage Cocktail Club, a 1920s speakeasy style gem which is right next to Temple Bar. The cocktails are unusual, creative and pretty darn good. Basically every cocktail is an adventure. Book their secluded roof terrace for a cosy and intimate hen party to remember. They also run cocktail making classes here.

Location: Crown Alley, Temple Bar

4, The Taphouse

If you’re looking for something more low-key and relaxed for your hen party celebrations, The Taphouse terrace overlooks Ranelagh and it’s perfect. The Taphouse is a buzzy local bar with an extensive beer menu and a great selection of cocktails. You’ll also find a great mix of platters and food to graze on here.

Location: Ranelagh

5. Opium

Opium is located in Dublin’s edgy Camden Street area. The Botanical Garden at Opium is however more of a hidden terrace than a traditional rooftop bar so whilst you won’t get the awesome rooftop views, you’ll instead find cool, eclectic interiors and delicious cocktails. There is a strong Asian influence with a nice selection of affordable pan-asian dishes.

Location: Wexford Street, Dublin 2 |

6. Bad Bobs

6 of Dublin's Best Rooftop Bars

 

What would a Hen Party in Dublin be without a trip to Temple Bar? One of the best-kept secrets happens to be on the roof of a legendary hotspot! Bad Bobs has been going strong on Essex St E for years now and is the kind of bar locals will flock to avoid all the touristy vibes just around the corner. If you were looking for a little authenticity in Temple Bar, this is the place to go. The bar sprawls across five floors and is quite lively on the weekends. Their rooftop terrace has the unique feature of being enclosed, and many people won’t even realise they’re technically outside on a night out when heading up there. With the venue having a late license and open until 3.30 am on the weekends, you could easily see yourself partying around Bad Bobs all night long.

Be on the lookout for the cocktail deals, with familiar favourites in their 2 for €12, along with a range of premium Casa Bacardi cocktails and gin serves.

Location:  35-37 Essex St
