Thanksgiving is not a national holiday in Ireland. But because Ireland and the United States have such close bonds it is the most likely place in Europe you are going to find a good party happening during the 2015 Thanksgiving holiday.Thanksgiving takes place this coming Thursday, the 26th of November.
The Merry Ploughboy in Rathfarnham in South Dublin celebrate Thanksgiving in a big way. They always have a traditional dinner and a show and on Thanksgiving this takes on a very American feel. It is certainly one of the best places in Dublin to celebrate the holiday. The Merry Ploughboy is a hugely popular traditional Irish pub with Irish music every night.
Beaufield Mews – Stillorgan
The Beaufield Mews, also located in South Dublin have a long running tradition of serving a traditional Thanksgiving meal as well as complimentary egg-nog.

The Irish Thanksgiving
If all else fails you can have the traditional South-Boston Irish Thanksgiving in Dublin, 12 cans of Guinness and a stack of ribs. But in all seriousness, there are large American communities in Ireland and in Dublin in particular and there will certainly be some festivities organised. A good place to look is Tripadvisor’s but there are some other websites like Reddit or specific Ex-pats sites.
The DCU International Team would like to welcome you to join them in the Student Restaurant to celebrate Thanksgiving, next Thursday, 28th of November from 8:30 am. They will have vouchers for breakfast, which they will give to you when you arrive. This would be a really nice opportunity to meet your fellow students that may also be missing home. Register your attendance for catering purposes by Tuesday 26th of November.
