Here are our top 5 suggestions if you find yourself in Dublin on the last Thursday of November:

2. Catch The Game

There will be a few bars and pubs in Dublin City where you can go and watch the big (American) football game on Thanksgiving but there’s one just around the corner from the hotel that we recommend: Sinnotts. It’s on South King Street and barely a one minute stroll from our door.

3. Join American Expats

The Americans Expats in Ireland is a 1,000-strong group of expats and they are holding a thanksgiving meet-up. Join the group and they’ll let you know about this and other meet-ups and events that they hold throughout the year.

4. American Star Trail

Take yourself off on a walking tour of Dublin to visit some of the traditional Irish pubs that have hosted some of the most famous Americans of all. The Long Hall pub where Bruce Spingsteen likes a pint, Mulligans of Poolbeg street where JFK had a tipple or Cassidys pub on Camden street run by Bill Clinton’s cousins.
