It's no secret that Dublin is a favourite spot for tourists across the water to have a bit of craic for the weekend. It takes some level of ingenuity, however, to turn a mini-break into a full on pub crawl based off a board game.

But that's just what TikToker Jamie McMinn has done this weekend. The social media star, who boasts over 18 thousand followers, is currently in Dublin on a weekend getaway with a twist. Himself and his mate Chris have devised a way to get to as many pubs as possible, by leaving their fate in the hands of the Monopoly board.

The two brought along the Dublin version of the famous board-game with the aim of having a drink at every square which, judging by the board itself, should definitely take them off the beaten path. For extra flair, they also have to spin a wheel which decides what drink they have to order. Oh, and they're also dressed in Monopoly-themed costumes, showing full commitment to the bit.

Dublin monopoly: a crazy journey

Jamie is updating his TikTok as he goes along to document his journey and has already uploaded the first few entries into their adventure around the capital. First off, they started in Dublin airport, obviously, with a bottle of beer on arrival. Next up was Croke Park, which saw the lads go searching for booze in The Hideout in Ballybough, a cultured start to their time on the North side.

They then visited the Gin Palace on Middle Abbey St and crossed the Ha'penny Bridge into Temple Bar. The next stop on the board was Busáras and the two stopped into Murrays on O'Connell Street. There's arguably closer pubs than that but look, we'll let it slide. The Gin Palace, The Grand Social, The Temple Bar, Buskers, Tapped and Lincoln's Inn were all visited there after.

Their journey then brought them up Grafton Street and into McDonalds.



It's fair to say the lads are in for a long night, and a few commenters are nervous there hasn't been an update since around dinner time Friday (this was published at 11pm Friday+. You can follow Jamie and Chris' journey over on Jamie's TikTok.
