Spending money ?

Hi everyone !

My partner and I have booked to stay in The Morgan for four nights (five days!) we've never been before so very excited!

I was wondering how much people would suggest spending money wise we're there to primarily relax and sight see! But we are fans of drinks and cocktails !!

Would anyone have any suggestions of how much money we should take we go on August 13th and back the 18th!

Thanks in advance

Ally

Slap bang in the middle of Templebar the most expensive places to drink in Ireland.. Get really friendly with your bank manager because €100 for a night out might not be an exaggeration.

At the moment the Morgan is offering cut price cocktails between 4 and 7.30pm. Normal prices are around €13.

That's great thanks ! We budgeted €130 a day ! We can drink in moderation and eat fairly cheaply so that's not a problem and we are happy to Go more than 5 min from our hotel we'd happily have a little walk about for the best rates any suggestions ?

Capital Bar on South Great George's Street does reasonable cocktails. I think they are discounted up until 11pm or so

You could have a bit of a cocktail crawl around the St. Stephen's Green/Dawson Street area.

Just to add to Box's list of cocktail places, reasonable ones in Pygmalion Bar on South William St. Really good ones in Cliff Townhouse, Mint and The Exchange. The Exchequer also has some lovely ones too. Best cocktails I've had recently were in 777 but it's near impossible to get in there and then you'd probably have to order their over priced food too!

To be honest there's days where I'd spend €100 in one day all by myself just eating and drinking! Then there's days when I'd spend next to nothing! €130 for two per day would probably be a good estimate!

I know Box, I know!!! Just some days I don't know what comes over me! And one cocktail is never enough! I do try and use the discount sites a lot though, which helps!

Speaking of discount sites etc, I recently picked up a deal for Roly's Bistro which seems to be great value. …menupages.ie/rolys-ballsbridge-dinner-deal-…
