Here's the cheapest place to get a Guinness in Dublin this Paddy's Day

It might not feel like that long since we were ringing in the new year but spring has sprung and there is already a grand ol' stretch in that evening.

That can only mean that St Patrick's Day is just around the corner.

Get your bunting out and make your plans for watching the parades because there is only a little over two weeks until we celebrate all that it means to be Irish.

We all have our traditions for celebrating Paddy's Day and for a lot of people the day will always involve toasting with a pint of the black stuff.

Of course, the thousands of tourists that will be visiting Dublin are already licking their lips at the thought of enjoying a proper Irish pint of Guinness.

So, ahead of the day the folks at The Sweatershop have done all of the grunt work for you and found the cheapest spots in the capital to enjoy a pint.

The pub with the cheapest Guinness is The Snug Bar on Stephen Street Upper where you can purchase a pint for just €3.70.

The Snug is followed by The Portobello on South Richmond Street, The Auld Triangle in Drumcondra and Downey's in Cabra who all offer a pint of plain for €4.

The Lark Inn, which is located near the Guinness Storehouse itself, charges €4.10 for a pint.

Meanwhile, a pint will set you back €4.20 if you pop in to Dicey Reilly's on Harcourt Street, The Yacht in Ringsend, Kavanagh's in Stoneybatter, The Bridge Tavern in Summerhill and The Clock in The Liberties.

It will come as little surprise that of the ten most expensive places to enjoy a Guinness in Dublin seven of them are in Temple Bar.

The Temple Bar pub tops the list as a pint will cost you €6.90, closely followed by The Vat House where a Guinness is €6.80.

No matter the price of a pint, there's no doubt that Temple Bar will be thronged with people revelling in the atmosphere that can be found nowhere else on Paddy's Day.

However you spend the day, be sure to enjoy it responsibly and to make sure you have a plan for how you will be getting home afterwards.
