Dublin debuts Celtic Cocktail Trail

Written by on February 2, 2018 in Liquor - No comments

A new passport program wants to reward you for enjoying adult beverages with an Irish flare throughout Dublin.

The Dublin Convention & Visitors Bureau this week launched the Celtic Cocktail Trail, a passport program in the ilk of the Columbus Ale Trail (of which I am a co-founder), offering incentives for patronising area boozy businesses.

“We have an Irish Fairy Door Trail for families and kids to visit different shops in Historic Dublin to find these little fairy doors,” said Sara Blatnik, Marketing Director for the Dublin Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We’ve had over the past two years more than 2,500 people finish the trail so we decided with all the new restaurants an development in the area that we wanted to do something more adult focused.”

Eleven Dublin bars and restaurants crafted a cocktail specifically for the Celtic Cocktail Trail, although if you don’t want to drink what’s on the menu at any particular stop you can sub the featured Celtic Cocktail for any adult beverage of your choice and still earn your stamp.

Participating bars include 101 Beer Kitchen, Dublin Village Tavern, J. Liu, The Ram Brewery, Tucci’s, Mezzo, The Pint Room, Pins Mechanical Company, Matt the Miller’s, Bogey Inn and Vaso Rooftop Lounge.

Five stamps will earn you a free coozie, and a finished passport with 11 stamps will get you a Celtic Cocktail t-shirt. There is no time limit to completing the trail.

You can pick up the Celtic Cocktail Trail guidebook at the Dublin Visitor & Information Center at 9 S. High St. in Downtown Dublin, or download and print a copy.


full disclosure: I was provided complimentary drinks and snacks at a preview event for the trail
