There’s nothing quite like a rooftop setting with amazing bubbles, a long cocktail menu and the best views of the city. So if you’re looking for something super extra for your classy Dublin hen party celebrations, check out 5 of Dublin’s best rooftop bars.


1. The Marker

Nothing feels more special that sitting on the rooftop of the classy Marker Hotel. With views of the docklands down below and Dublin’s skyline, this rooftop bar is made for expresso martinis and lemon bonbons. This is perfect experience to team with blow dries at Roller blow dry bar and brunch in either the Charlotte Quay or Herb Street. Classy hen party goals.

3. The Vintage Cocktail Club Rooftop Terrace

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.

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.

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.
