    you must be 16 to be allowed to enter in a pub but you can't drink alcohol and leave before 9pm. this is the rule I knew.

    If you're so young, then finding accommodation may also be a problem?
    Many hotels have a minimum age requirement, and even hostels may balk at accommodating you, as you may legally be deemed 'unaccompanied minors'. I'm not sure how it works for Ireland, but it's certainly worth checking on.

    I think you should do this trip with your parents and forget going alone. Kids you age will not be allowed to check into any hotel or hostel. Also entry into the pub will be ok if you are 16 but you will be kicked out after 9 in the evening. And your 15 year old friend will not be allowed in with just you alone.

    You are still young, I would wait till you are both 18 to make this trip.

    thanks for answering :-)
    well i know that i'm young but I live alone and I'm in the 2 last grades of school and i'll have my last graduation at 16 so anyway I'm gonna have to do things by myself,
    I'm a musician and if everything is all right I gonna have to go somewhere like paris, amsterdam or toronto in 3 years so I wont be 17 anyway...
    I know my age is a problem but there is no solution...
