6 Gorgeous Rooftop Bars To Book For Date Night This September

While the sun still shines you'll catch us checking out these rooftops, cocktail in hand.

September has landed and although it’s a month that marks the end of summer in our eyes, that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to enjoy the outdoor life, right?

Granted we might be packing a cardigan to wear instead of the factor 50, but while there’s still a light breeze and a little heat in the sun, you can be sure we’ll be enjoying drinks with a view from one of these gorgeous rooftop bars located around Ireland.

With plenty to choose from, we narrowed it down to six of our favourite spots that are guaranteed to make your date night – be it with that special someone or a catch up with your pals.

These popular spots are also definitely worth booking if you’re thinking in advance and the perfect way to cheers to summer 2021 as we see it out on a high… from a high.

A small rooftop location, but also a gem of a spot, The Taphouse in Ranelagh, Dublin 6 is a spot that often goes unmentioned. Maybe not the first rooftop that’d spring to mind when you think about the variety on offer in Dublin, but certainly not one to forget. With its cosy setting, delish menu, great staff and nice drinks, it’s a winner in our eyes.
