It’s a lively establishment and they run a regular programme of themed events including Win, Lose or Drag on Monday nights which can attract a good shemale contingency. Tolerant of admiring straight guys, the George is a good haunt to check out, especially on the weekend.
The Globe Bar and Ra-Ra Nightclub

Open midweek from 5pm and from 4pm on the weekend, the Globe is not a gay venue but wears its colours with pride to support the LGBT community.

Websites for Hooking Up With Dublin Shemales and Ladyboys
If you don’t fancy the challenge of picking up a tranny in the heart of the Liffysiders, then you could always go straight to the horse’s mouth.
Here are some websites that can, shall we say…. expedite the process.
With peer reviews, the listings on this site are very detailed and include contact information, full bio, pictures and other information.
Providing incall and outcall escort services, the shemales on the site are high quality and the reviews allow you to be more discerning about quality. The site also offers quality photographs with each listing.
Locanto (Dublin TS Escorts)
Advertising classifieds from shemales in Dublin that, normally, charge for their services, Locanto is a useful directory that offers a range of ages, backgrounds and experiences. Some listings are paid for, escort services whilst others are simply from shemales with an appetite for NSA encounters with admiring men. You do have to be selective in your choices as you would on Backpage or Craigslist but patience can be rewarding.
In addition to the various adult classified sites popular in Ireland, those punters willing to take on a little risk will often head to the street to find ladyboys.
We certainly don’t recommend crawling the curb looking for TS sex workers, but it’s well known that some guys strike it lucky outside the major TS bars and clubs around closing time.
