“Cocktails fab but pricey!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

Myself and my boyfriend went in for an after dinner cocktail or 3! The service and atmosphere was excellent!

Each cocktail was as good as the last!
The cocktails are very pricey compared to other places in Dublin, however we were in a beautiful hotel in the middle of city centre, high prices was expected.

You wouldn't be drinking cocktails here all night with those prices but as long as you know the price before hand then happy days!

Overall excellent experience! Lovely treat!

“Could be more exciting”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

A hotel bar, quite nice but not much going on. There is live music but the place does not really rock. I guess people have to know that it is located at the Westin and plan to go there since it does not have any walk in crowd.

Hi Sveenz and thanks for taking the time to share your comments after you visited us in the Mint. I want to let you know that we have recently done a refurbishment in the Mint and we have lots of fabulous new cocktails and a new menu. So I hope will drop in to visit us again the next time you are in Dublin and the atmosphere will be a lot more fun.
All the best

“Hen Party”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I did the cocktail masterclass here for my hen party on a saturday afternoon in October. It thought it was exceptionally good value for what we got. The girl who gave the class was excellent and they drinks were really excellent. I would highly recommend this venue for a party of any kind!!

“Awesome bar in The Westin”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We just loved The Mint bar! It is an old bank vault and feels very gothic. The service was excellent and the food delicious! We really enjoyed the live music as well! We went there several times during our stay.
