Guide and advice to the best Strip Clubs in Ireland.
Strip Clubs in Ireland is a bit different from the other clubs in the UK, the layout and style is the same
The working system in the strip clubs in Ireland is more a mixture of the system in England and other European countries. The girls often gets a fixed salary and also commission from champagne and dances. There is not such a high number of dancers in the clubs and you will mostly only find foreign strippers working in Ireland. If you are going here as a dancer you need to arrange your own accommodation in most of the clubs. In Ireland you will find most of the Lapdancing clubs in Dublin and some in Cork and Galway. Another difference from the other UK Countries is that Ireland has Euro instead of pounds as the currency, the economy has also been good in Ireland the last years, so its been a popular destination to work for dancers.
Strip clubs in Ireland number relatively few and most are located in the capital city of Dublin. The Irish are known for being the life and the soul of the party, so many people flock to this city to enjoy the 'craic' as it is affectionately known. Dublin is full of tourist and locals alike, looking to let loose and have a good time. It is also a very popular stag party destination closer to home for the Brits.
There are a relatively small number of strip clubs in Ireland. This is due to the fact the Catholic church still has huge sway over the legal system. It is very conservative in many respects. Clubs and dancers are in limited supply, so this does mean that there is a lot of traffic through the strip clubs in Ireland relative to dancer and club numbers. Especially from the large number of visitors that travel here every year.
Dances start at around €30 and it is very normal to do a lot of smaller dances, similar to the UK system.
Lap dances are more popular in strip clubs in Ireland. Clubs will offer Champagne commissions and VIP sit down prices as well. Extra services are not provided within clubs as soliciting is illegal. Pole shows are on rotation through the night and feature shows are virtually non-existent.
Clubs tend to offer dancers a fixed salary and around 50% commission to dancers. As a result, they keep dancer numbers fairly low. Strip clubs in Ireland have a system that embraces the European style of strip clubs with fixed salaries and higher commission. However, the working environment is very similar to UK style strip clubs. This makes strip clubs in Ireland a little different to other countries.
Dancers in Irish clubs tend to come from other parts of Europe, especially the East. Many people in the country have had very limited contact with the industry. Therefore, attitudes to dancing throughout Ireland mean there is still a stigma attached. This is especially true outside of Dublin, a more cosmopolitan city. Local girls can be deterred, as a result, from getting involved in the job. That is not to say you will not find Irish dancers when you visit a strip club in Ireland, but a significant proportion will be from overseas.

Information about Ireland
In 2015, Ireland only had a relatively small population of 4.6 million people (source
). Although very small compared to a lot of other European countries, the very small number of strip clubs means there is quite a low ratio of strip clubs in Ireland to people. There were over 8 million visitors to Ireland the same year so there is a huge amount of passing traffic, with a huge increase of airline carriers servicing the country to keep up with demand (source)
. A very high proportion of these visitors will be stag parties. It is a very popular destination for this with it's abundance of breweries and lively nightlife. Famous drinking attractions such as 'Temple Bar' and the Guiness brewery set the tone for many trips to the country. This means there are a lot of potential clients regularly about to keep the strip clubs busy!
