Toast your success with an Old Fashioned or Whiskey Sour.
Proceed to a gig in the Main Room (everyone from Little Green Cars to Royal Blood has played here). But none combines the edge, craic and abandon of the after-hours city quite like The Workman’s. It’s 4am, the lights are up, and you look like an extra from The Walking Dead. Named after a Yeats poem, set above a kooky bookshop on the quays, you might think The Winding Stair was destined for a) extinction or b) tourist traffic jams. This city landmark got one of the most tasteful upgrades of the Celtic Tiger (a time not exactly known for its tasteful upgrades), imbuing the menu with artisanal flair whilst retaining the wooden floors, girders and of course, picture-postcard views (nab a window seat overlooking the Liffey).
Nearby, you’ll find Aungier Danger, purveyor of killer doughnuts (try the lemon poppy seed).
The chefs call the shots with a selection of experimental tasting menus starting from €69.
This is the place to celebrate a big occasion — birthdays, anniversaries, paydays...
On a good day, views range from Terminal 2 to the Sugarloaf.
You’re welcome Finland meets Dublin’s fair city, and the results are sublime.

Everyone’s in great form, lolling on the grass, or feeding the ducks (some of whom have a suspiciously seagull-like appearance...).
Naturally, the Green is best experienced with a treat in hand.
Well, with the possible exception of your county actually winning the game.
