    You have to be 21 to drink in Ireland, they need 2 forms of photo ID as well.

    I could get served at 16 in pubs. Bigger off licenses demand ID however.
    If you look over 18, no one in the pub will care really. Although iv never been drinking in the city centre

    aye I'm joking :) I don't think the bars in Dublin are any stricter or lenient than anywhere else I've drank. If you look over 18 and are dressed smartly I don't see a problem. :)

    Why would there be a problem if you're Welsh? I've been going to Dublin for years and never had any problems there :)

    ..oh and in case you can't tell, I'm Welsh too :p

    If you're going to be going around the touristey bars you probably will get ID'd. Last time I was drinking in Dublin we mostly stayed away from the tourist spots but once we went into the city (Temple Bar area in particular) I was ID'd in almost every bar and I'm 20, although I suppose I do look a bit younger.

    If you keep to the quieter bars you'll be grand.
