As we get closer to the finals of the UEFA EURO 2021 finals in July, we figured it’s a great time to make a post strictly for the football fans. Though Ireland was not able to qualify for this year’s EURO 2021 competition, we all know the Irish fans have a global reputation for being the most likeable football fans.
So for all our sports customers, we have created a list of our favourite 4 sports bars in Dublin. And long after the 2021 EURO finals, you can join in on the fun whether you’re interested in darts, GAA, soccer, rugby or golf.
- The Living Room
Located on Cathal Brugha Street in Dublin City centre, the Living Room is fondly known as ‘Ireland’s No. 1 Sports Bar’. This place is an Irish sports fan’s dream – featuring possibly the largest beer garden screen in Ireland.
It also has a viewing area that connects 2 other local favourite pubs – Fibber Magees and Murray’s Pub. Like most sports bars in Dublin, there are several extra screens in and around the pub. So you’re guaranteed to enjoy some action while also enjoying an insane atmosphere.
2. The Woolshed Baa & Grill
Located on Parnell Street, the prize for possibly the largest indoor sports screen in Dublin undoubtedly goes to the Woolshed Baa & Grill. ‘Australiano’ as it is fondly called by its Brazilian clientele, also doubles as Dublin’s Most Popular Karaoke bar. With its cinema-style seating and setup, the Woolshed ‘Baa’ boasts an incredibly unique setting with 2 insanely large projector screens side-by-side.
Along with numerous other screens in the building, the Woolshed would be a delight for anyone looking to watch the match. Or the EURO finals in this case. Make sure to keep an eye out for their weekly pub quizzes, Latin nights and Karaoke events.
3. Sinnott’s Bar
With a history that’s over 200 years old, Sinnott’s has had its fair share of ownership changes throughout the years. Also boasting an impressive selection of literary portraits, the South King street bar is by far the best sports bar in the Stephen’s Green area.
Boasting 14 huge indoor screens and a state of the art audio-visual system, Sinnott’s Bar is simply an experience. With a unique architecture that blends both the 18th & 21st centuries, Sinnott’s really is the place to visit for both entertainment and an insight into Irish history, literature, and art.
4. The Bleeding Horse.
On to Camden Street Upper lies The Bleeding Horse. A traditional timber, high-ceilinged building with 2 wooden balconies, this joint offers the best of both worlds if you want to watch live sport or the EURO finals.
With a history even richer than Sinnott’s above, you can either watch the game downstairs near the horseshoe bar or head off upstairs and find a spot in one of the many nooks and crannies. A beautiful maze of sorts. Have a good pint of Guinness, and a decent food menu to boot.
And that’s that. Did we leave out your favourite pub? Feel free to mention other sports bars or pubs in the comments.
