Dublin Bar Academy

Bartender for a night


The perfect start to your night out!

Book course

One of the most exciting, hands-on experiences that Dublin Bar Academy offers is the Bartender for a night. This is the perfect mix of entertainment and education, where each guest is greeted with a welcome cocktail upon arrival before sinking into the art behind mixology. This leisurely introduction is then followed by a Classic Cocktail Tasting, where guests have some time for sampling in anticipation of the Mix-Off Challenge, where things get a bit competitive!

Old Fashioned’s, Martini’s, Mai Tai’s and much more for you to sample on the night,

Leaving his native Sweden, Richard has travelled the world in pursuit of bar and hospitality expertise. From the UK, where he spent five years in the Chewton Glen five star resort that is consistently voted in the top hotels in the world, to Thailand where he worked as the Head Instructor at the European Bartending School. On these shores, Richard trained for three years under our celebrity hotelier Francis Brennan at The Park Hotel Kenmare, as well as being restaurant and bar manager at the Michelin Star Cliff House Hotel.


When he is not serving up tequila wisdom, Ronan can be found in Drury Building, a popular Dublin haunt that he owns and runs. In his past life Ronan set up the market leading events company None Events, worked as a Brand Ambassador for Patron Tequila, was the on-trade trainer for Brinkman Beverages and was bar manager at The Morgan Hotel, one of the first internationally awarded cocktail bars in Ireland.
