What’s the drinking age in Dublin, Ireland?

I’ve looked around on the internet but I want a sure answer. Does anyone know?

I’m taking a trip to Europe next May and I’ll be 18 by then. I’m hoping that it really is 18.

Okay so those of you who have been there, do you have any suggestions of what pubs or clubs I should go to??

  • I’m not sure about Ireland. In some countries, it’s when you’re tall enough to reach the top of the bar.

  • The legal age to buy alcohol in Ireland is 18. You must be able to prove your age. A passport, National Identity Card, Garda Síochána Age Card (Age Card issued by Irish Police), drivers licence are all acceptable. Bouncers are very strict and very often ask people who obviously look over 18 so make sure you bring I.D.
