Things to do in Dublin
In 1927, prohibition was enforced across the country of Ireland, crippling distilleries, and breweries across the island. However, Ireland being the home to many antinomians, meant that this law was not a deterrent, but an obstacle which was to be overcome. Venues across the country began to pop up in homes, sheds, and even businesses that acted as a front so that citizens could partake in drinking and playing music. These venues were separated into different denominations; the ‘blind pig’, ‘blind tiger’, or a ‘speakeasy’.
The blind pig and blind tiger venues were typically for lower-class attendees, who partook in drinking, and playing music, whereas the speakeasy offered a more luxurious offering for the upper classes, where they could enjoy premium cocktails in elitist surroundings.
The little pig (also known as the Blind Pig) is one of Dublin's most exclusive speakeasy bars and is hidden in plain sight, in a secret location that will only be revealed once you have made a reservation. Once we have organised a suitable date and time for you and your corporate travel group to arrive, you will be provided with a secret password, which you will need to declare on arrival. This authentic Irish pub experience is like no other that you will have anywhere else in Ireland and is on Silverdale Ireland’s ‘must see’ venues.
Just off Capel Street, there is a very ordinary-looking Korean grocer, but what lies hidden deep inside is nothing less than extraordinary, serving premium Korean and Asian dishes in a colloquial yet quirky setting. The White Rabbit has become one of Dublin’s’ most renowned dining experiences in recent years, offering delicacies which both delight and surpass the local's expectations.
