Dublin Sex Guide advises where to find sex, working girls, prostitution, street hookers, brothels, red-light districts, sex shops, prostitutes, erotic massage parlors, strip clubs and escorts in Dublin, Ireland.

Dublin is the capital city of Ireland. Its vibrancy, nightlife and tourist attractions are noteworthy, and it is the most popular entry point for international visitors to Ireland. As a city, it is disproportionately large for the size of the country with nearly two million in the Greater Dublin Region - well over a third of the Republic's population! The centre is, however, relatively small and can be navigated by foot, with most of the population living in suburbs.

Sex and Prostitution in Dublin

Prostitution in Ireland is not illegal. Buying sex or selling sexual services is legal, because the Irish law “protects these transactions as agreements between consenting adults”.

Turn Off The Red Light (TORL) is a campaign set up in Ireland by an alliance of Irish non-governmental organisations. Their aim is to criminalise the purchase of sex, and end prostitution and sex trafficking.

There are some activities that are connected to prostitution that are outlawed in Ireland, such as kerb crawling, brothel keeping, or soliciting in public places. However, these acts are merely public order offences, which means the punishment will simply be to pay a fine.

In 2008, buying sex from a person who had been trafficked became illegal, Human Trafficking Act 2008. But this act does not provide for strict liability, which means the person who paid for the sexual activity can defend themselves by simply saying they didn’t know that the person who they were purchasing sex had been trafficked!

Dublin Female Escorts

There are many Escorts advertising online and in the Dublin newspapers. Average girls charge 100-150€ for 30 mins of sex and 180-220€ for 1 hour of fucking.

Red Light Districts

There are no official designated 'safe prostitution zones' or 'prostitution tolerance zones' in Dublin due to the legal situation, but there are still Red Light Districts in Dublin of course and nowadays the unofficial Red-light district of Dublin is Arbour hill & Parkgate st area at night time. It is not a real Red-light district, but you can find quite many whores wondering around. Street prostitutes work from early evening until early morning hours.

History of the Dublin Red-light District:

Monto was the nickname for the one-time arguably, the largest Red-light district in Europe which was located in Dublin, the capital of Ireland. In its heyday from the 1860s - 1920s, there were anything up to 1,600 prostitutes working there at any one time during its peak years, with all classes of customers catered for. This was partly in thanks to it being a port, and garrison town, filled with British army barracks. Monto was a shortening of Montgomery Street.

Prostitutes and Sex Workers

For many years prior to the 1993 Sexual Offences Act, most female prostitutes worked on the streets, but, since this time, brothels marketed as escort agencies have been the most prevalent form of prostitution. Advertising in print publications is illegal, but a very developed Internet advertising medium exists.

There are about 2000 sex workers in Dublin.

Average half-hour rates for sex with a prostitute are now running at 80-140€. It is quite a lot if you compare to the sex prices in Germany, but still cheaper what sex cost in London.

Street Hookers

There are estimated of under 200 street sex workers in Dublin and street prostitutes sure do walk the streets of Dublin and Dublin johns sure do enjoy them, but you have to remember that street prostitution is clearly illegal under Irish law. Some punters want sex as cheap as they can get it, others get a thrill out of the danger of searching sex from the streets. Whatever the reason is, some guys just like street girls better that escort girls. Sex in the Dublin streets cost 30 to 100 Euro depending the services you want, looks and the age of the girl.

It is a criminal offence to solicit or importune in a street or public place for the purposes of prostitution, Section 7, Criminal Justice (Sexual Offences) Act 1993. It is also a criminal offence to loiter for the purposes of prostitution, Section 8, Criminal Justice (Sexual Offences) Act 1993. Police keeps on busting the punters quite often in the streets so be a careful.

Erotic Massage Parlors

Unfortunately we don't list in this category!

In recent years "Chinese & Asian Massage" venues that offer 'extra services such as HJ, BJ or Sex' have become very popular in Ireland and mostly in Dublin. These massage salons usually advertise their services on internet and newspapers. The giveaway that they are the type of massage business offering sexual services might be a cellphone number instead of a landline, late opening hours or their pointing out that their masseuses are all females offering extra services. Many of the Thai and Chinese massage places advertise on Irish Times. Price for a massage is usually 40 to 60€ and a hand relief costs about 20 to 50€ extra depending the looks of the girl and your negotiating skills. Some of the erotic massage salons offer a massage and a Happy Ending packages for 40 to 60€ and this includes a 30 minute massage and a penis massage. There are also massage salons where you can find Eastern European, South American or African masseuse girls. Overall there is a huge competition between the erotic massage parlours at Dublin and it just seems to get tougher.

Stay Safe

  • Dublin is generally a very safe city. However as in most other large cities, a few crimes against the person, such as muggings, unprovoked attacks, and robberies, have been known to occur in Dublin. Treat Dublin as you would other western cities, and be sensible: never walk in poorly-lit areas at night, especially alone; as Dublin centre is relatively compact, be aware that walking a few blocks can take you into some bad areas. Be especially vigilant or preferably avoid all-together walking around the city centre after bar closing times on weekends (2:30AM-3:00AM) when very drunk other people roam the streets and when violent behavior and crime are most likely to occur. Most homicides in the city are gang related.
  • You will see a wide variety of buskers and street performers, usually on Grafton Street or Henry/Mary Street. These are normal people just plying their trade; they are usually very helpful for directions and appreciate your donations.
  • If people approach you on the street, they could indeed be people just looking for directions, charity workers looking for donations, or people simply looking for a cigarette lighter. Be aware that Dublin people are usually open and unlike big cities like London or New York, talking to complete strangers is a common and regular occurrence.
  • If someone who appears to be drunk or under the influence of drugs approaches you asking if they can talk to you for a moment, it is wise to keep walking (although expect drunk people to talk to you in a pub as it is common). These people may simply ask you for a cigarette or some money for a bus, but be aware that most Dubliners, even if they have no money, would never ask a stranger for money or cigarettes (although asking for a light for a cigarette is common). There are several scams being used on unaware tourists and locals alike so please be careful and use your judgement. If someone comes to you on the street, touches you, and asks you for something, say "no" and walk away. Again, locals will almost never behave like this so avoid people who do.
  • When driving, leave nothing valuable visible in your car, lock doors while driving through slow traffic in the city. There are plenty of taxis at all hours of the day and night, which are safe and usually friendly.
  • Never be afraid to approach Gardai (police officers) to ask for help or directions, It is their job to help. If you do get into trouble somehow and fear for your safety (which is very rare) and cannot find a Gardai officer, head to the nearest establishment such as a bar or shop where you will be safe. Call the emergency services on 112, free from any phone, and ask for the relevant service. If you have no phone, ask anyone working in a shop or bar to call the police for you, and the employee will gladly assist. Also, most doormen and bouncers in pubs will gladly call the police for you if you explain your situation.
  • Dublin has heavy traffic, and even if several of the locals tend to cross the road without having a green man, it is not recommended to follow their example.
  • If you rent a bicycle, ensure you rent full safety wear (helmet and lights) failure to do so can (albeit it rarely) result in fines.
  • Care should also be used when taking some of the "Nitelink" buses that frequent the city as they, while often safe, have seen their fair share of trouble. Sit downstairs if possible, if only to avoid the more raucous singing and shouting.
  • Taxis are well regulated in Ireland but, like everywhere else, it is not unknown for taxi drivers to take longer routes when non-Dubliners are being carried - ask for the quickest route. If staying in a hotel or hostel your host may be able to help you find a reputable mini-cab.
  • The area around Temple Bar is both an attraction for tourists and for pickpockets. Be aware of your surroundings.
