Pride month is finally here, and to inspire everyone to celebrate as much as possible, we set up a list of five LGBTQ+ venues in Dublin for you and your friends to enjoy a night out. Whether you prefer to party until sunrise or a more low-profile atmosphere, we are sure you will find the perfect place to go among our selections.


Mother is a beloved LGBTQ+ nightclub where people can dance and enjoy electro music with friends on a Saturday night out in Dublin. Besides that, Mother hosts the Mother Block Party, a famous festival that takes place during Pride month every year. 

The George


The George is a must-visit LGBTQ+ bar for a wild night out in the heart of Dublin city centre. The bar has been around since 1985 and is a traditional night out spot for the community. They have LOADS of fun events throughout the week, including Saturgays Karaoke and the iconic Bingo With Shirley Temple Bar and Friends on Sunday. 

Street 66

Recently, we reported a break-in at our beloved bar, Street 66. So show your support for one of the community’s favourite meeting places. This is the perfect trendy bar for when you’re feeling good and looking for a place that matches your vibe. When visiting, make sure to ask for one of their cocktails because they are absolutely delicious. 


Continuing with venues for the LGBTQ+ community, but now moving to parties that do not take place every week, Strawberries is the best option for those who like to party hard or even just discover new artists. We recommend you keep an eye on their Instagram feed to find out when is the next party and get your ticket. 


Lick – Strictly No Men Allowed is a party created by Lick Events in London targeting women. The goal is to promote a safe space where women can enjoy themselves without being concerned with who is surrounding them. The party will have its first edition in Dublin on 22 July 2022 at Opium.

The queer nightlife scene in Dublin is slowly coming back to normal and constantly growing. These are just a mere handful of events to act as a taster, there are options for all budgets and moods, which means there is no excuse to stay home and not celebrate Pride month this year!
