The second annual Dublin Cocktail Festival takes place between October 12 and 17 in 30 venues across the capital.

  • Go To

Each venue will have at least one signature cocktail on offer with up to 30% discount for the six-day festival.

All you need to do is purchase a €5 wristband in any of the 30 participating bars and restaurants to avail of the discounted drinks.

Brought to you by Oisin Davis of Great Irish Beverages, the festival aims to promote Irish spirits and liqueurs by celebrating the products local distilleries are producing.

So every venue must have an Irish spirit or liqueur as their leading ingredient for their festival cocktail.

Expect single pot still whiskies, premium gins and vodkas, old school poitíns and liqueurs infused with wild Irish berries.

Festival-goers will also get the chance to vote for their favourite cocktail. Last year the honour went to Diep Le Shaker’s ‘Golden Brown’.

Who will it be this year?
