Student Life

Dublin is well served by extensive bus and tram routes allowing you to discover all corners of the city. However, like most places, finding your way is best by foot. Everything you need is within walking distance allowing you to wander and stroll through the streets of Dublin.

EBS Activities

These are some of the typical activities our students enjoy outside course hours. The special thing about EBS Dublin is that ALL of the following activities are included in the course price.

Tullamore D.E.W. Tour

Tullamore D.E.W. very recently brought its whiskey production back home to Tullamore, for the first time in more than 60 years and it is a treasure for any whiskey-afficionado. Along with the working distillery, a visitor centre was created for tastings, shopping and a restaurant. And the European Bartender School will take you there.

Tiki Thursday

Tiki Thursdays are all about celebrating; we dress up in tiki clothes, throw on music and invite some of Dublin’s most talented bartenders to make us lots of different tiki and rum drinks. In the meanwhile, everybody can chill out, play table tennis, table football, and enjoy the day. At night, we head out to take inspiration from Dublin’s most gifted bartenders and if we are lucky, they will let us in on their top tips!

Guinness Storehouse

We will take you on a tour of Ireland’s renowned Guinness Brewery – the home of the black stuff. Here you will discover the production process of Ireland’s most famous drink and enjoy a tasting experience in their Sky Bar overlooking Dublin.
