The Dublin school

The school is only a stone’s throw from some of the most stylish bars and restaurants the city has to offer. The EBS Dublin facility is huge; it contains a 14 metre bar with 12 bar stations, flair area, study room, chill out area and a barista academy. The chill out zone is equipped with an Xbox, bean bags, and table tennis, football and air hockey tables. Dublin offers everything a professional bartender could want, friendly locals, vibrant nightlife, excellent bartending opportunities and a world-class bartending school, EBS Dublin!

Accommodation

Abbey Court Hostel is situated just off Dublin's famous O'Connell Bridge which makes it the most centrally located hostel in the city! Don’t worry about not finding the hostel; the airport shuttle stops just outside and an amazing piece of graffiti covers the building so it really stands out!

You’ll be within walking distance of virtually all of the city’s major landmarks including the Guinness Storehouse, St Stephen’s Green, Dublin Castle, and Christchurch Cathedral. Just across the river you’ll find the buzzing party area of Temple Bar; here’s where you’ll find the best of Dublin’s pubs, bars, restaurants, and live music. It’s just a 20-minute stroll from the hostel to EBS Dublin.

The tram stop and many of the local buses pass by the hostel which makes it easy for you to move around and even go further afield to explore the stunning countryside.

After-hours activities

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.

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!

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.

Enjoy an intimate session with whiskey guru John Moriarty and be guided through each whiskey variation from Wales, Scotland, Japan, America, Canada and Ireland. This activity teaches you priceless information and brings you even closer to being the perfect bartender.
