12 sun-soaked snapshots from Ireland's beer gardens in the hot weather

Ireland’s best outdoor areas for a cold pint with pals.

WHILE WE STILL  have the sun on our side, take the opportunity to enjoy the glorious weather in one of Ireland’s many beer gardens.

From re-appropriated buses to beachside beer, Irish pubs know how to make a garden special.

Here are twelve of our favourite outdoor areas to enjoy a drink across the country.

1. Home to both Beer Street and Gin Lane, O’Connell’s, by Galway’s Eyre Square, is the perfect place to mingle

2. Colourful street art gives The Sunflower’s compact beer garden an edge in Belfast
