Probably comparable with West End London (although the exchange rate is not great for you at the moment). Remember that Irish spirit measures are larger than the measures you will get in English pubs

i paid 5.50 euro for a pint of heinekin at the weekend (early evening before the prices go up) thats just over 4 pounds.on sunday i bought 6 bottles at an off licence for 10 euro.this is why pubs are losing so much business

I have just spent a weekend in Dublin and the price of a round of drinks (5 in total) was between 30-40 euros....

Drinking in Dublin is definitely cheaper than London altho most visitors go to Temple Bar which is the most expensive area.

A vodka here is 35ml compared to 25ml in England so remember that. It'd cost about €4.50 for a measure of spirits.

Pints are between €4.50 and €5.50 but remember if you drink in tourist areas like Temple Bar expect to pay more

Another issue is the price of mixers - this makes spirits an expensive enough option. You can't get the 'splash' option you get in a lot of UK bars.
