Dublin’s bar without boozeNorthside, Dublin

It may be the birthplace of Guinness, but that doesn’t mean the people of Dublin don’t mind a detox every now and then. Enter The Virgin Mary, Ireland’s very first booze-free bar. Now that may sound like blasphemy to some, but one look at the bespoke cocktail list could be enough to sway even the most seasoned drinker.

Carefully crafted to emulate the taste of alcohol, the selection of bevvies includes the Cedar’s Spritz, a gin and tonic-style tipple complete with cucumber ribbon, and the Virgin Mary, a spicy take on the classic Bloody Mary. There are also four non-alcoholic beers and nitro coffee that emulates the texture and appearance of Guinness flows from a stout tap. Located on quirky Capel Street, this bar serves up the craic without a hangover the next morning.
