No Ticket For The Match? Head To These Places In Town Instead

Posted by


THERE’S a serious day of sport ahead with the rugby on the telly and the football  at Austin Stack Park tonight. The Dubs are coming in their thousands and it’s going to make for a great atmosphere in town. So then, where to go if you don’t have a ticket…

1. The Brogue…

If you can’t make it here, then there are some tasty options in town to watch the match.

With a 5pm kick off in the Ireland v England rugby match, the Brogue is a perfect place to start your night.

Head to the Rock institution for a bite to eat while watching the match on the big screen before heading to Austin Stack Park (or just stay and watch the Kerry game if you don’t have a ticket). The menu is amazing, there’s plenty of TVs and it’ll be some atmosphere.


2. Charlie’s Bar at Kerins O’Rahillys…

If you don’t have a ticket to Kerry v Dublin, then the Strand Road Club has a great Match Special deal of a delicious homemade burger with chips and coleslaw and a pint of your choice for just €12.95, but there’s so much more to choose from on their menu.

With David Moran and Jack Savage on the team (and Barry John almost certain to spring from the bench) the Naries without tickets will be out in force to create some noise in the club.

3. The Grand Hotel…

The Grand is another super spot for some food while watching  the matches and later that night, it will open its nightclub for the special occasion. Expect a huge crowd and some mighty craic with DJ Tony Mulvihill from 11pm.


4. The Castle Bar…

The analysts will be out in force after the final whistle and many of them will relive every kick in this Rock Street pub afterwards. While Cheltenham is finished, the party isn’t over yet!


5. Fabrik…

If you wear your county jersey you’ll get into Fabrik nightclub tonight for free. The front bar is also open and there’s some generous drinks promotions with 3 for €10 on bottles and shots while pints are €4 for Heineken and Guinness. The Dubs will get heart attacks when they see those prices!
