    Dublin nightlife midweek?

    I'm planning on returning to Dublin end of September with my partner. We went last year Friday and Saturday and loved the nightlife around Temple Bar. We were planning on staying midweek this time but are unsure on whether it's busy midweek and whether the bars stay open late?

    Anybody had any experiences?

    Also if not anybody got any sites for a midweek get away somewhere sunny!

    Much appreciated

    It always busy around Temple Bar area and madly expensive also lol. Mon-Thurs most will close for 11pm but the likes of Temple Bar itself is normally open until 01:00 and you will find others normally also with late opening. If you fancy staying outside of Dublin I can recommend Brackencourt in Ballbriggan around 10.50 Euro return each for the train into Dublin (train station less than 5 minute walk and runs around every 45-60 minutes). Food is excellent in that hotel and beer is between 4-4.50 and around 5-6 euro for a glass of wine.
    If you fancy somewhere different I can't recommend Athlone enough it is more or less in the centre of Ireland 2/3 way west between Dublin and Galway. Very cheap food wise and again around 4-4.50 Euro a pint. Also if you driving plenty of whiskey tours to do all very close nearby and far cheap than the Dublin tour prices. Athlone also home to Irelands Oldest Bar (Official Guinness book of records one- http://www.seansbar.ie/home)
    Best prices in Ireland in general is always direct with the hotel. (I'm guilty myself of using the likes of expedia to see loads in one go then head to the hotels own websites and ringing them also as not always some deals on the websites)
    For Balbriggan - brackencourt.ie/
    For Athlone - theprinceofwales.ie/
    or
    Radisson Blu Athlone
    Stayed in both and they much of a much. Food is better for lunch/dinner in PrinceOfWales athough they are literally less than 5 minute walk from each other.

    Also like the below hotel in Leixlip just south of Dublin - The true first home of Guinness!

    Thanks so much for that reply helped loads!
    We're only young (22-23) and appreciate the nightlife of Dublin, different to your usual clubbing holidays at this age. The last time we could've sat there drinking Guinness all day listening to the same Irish music. I'll have a look tomorrow at them places. Thanks a lot

    Your welcome. I also added some more about Athlone, little party town it is. Never actually stayed there during a weekend but mid-week it was always nuts and great fun, great pricing also in the hotels. Again if you need anything else just hollar. I'm in Northern Ireland and I'm "Down South" quiet often for both business and pleasure. That is actually how we found Athlone which had been a "stop off night" hotel for a meeting the next morning in Galway.

    Forgot to add if you can try to do 3 nights. Most deals with be for the likes of 3BB and 1 Dinner sometimes with 1 night free mid-week. Most also will be Sun-Tue check-in. Fridays/Saturday the two most expensive days.

    Try Harcourt Street. Somewhere like Diceys has €2 drinks on a Wednesday. Avoid Copper Face Jacks though, it's a pick up joint but mainly for infectious diseases.
