Since Publin launched in early December 2012 we’ve had a lot of enquiries from the media about the site and have featured in some of Ireland’s biggest publications.
On the 14th of December Hot Press online ran a story about us.
Launched at the start of the month, at a time when The Budget is bumping up prices and slashing people’s spending money, new pub price comparison site publin.ie is aiming to give the ordinary decent punters of Dublin more value for their money and the kind of key information needed to make the most of your night out.
2FM D.J. Rick O’Shea mentioned us on his radio show after a lot of initial twitter buzz around the site.
In response to us asking whether he had indeed mentioned us he said…
Following on from that ‘Star Chic magazine’ featured us in their January 28th issue.
“We’re loving a clever new website www.publin.ie that promises to be “Dublin’s best pub and price guide”. There is a list of the cheapest pints in town, plus a handy weekly deals section so you can plan a low cost night out. For example, when we logged on the Bleeding Horse pub in Camden street was offering a Captain Morgans and orange for just €5, all week.”
On Saturday February the 18th Publin featured heavily in an article by Roisín Ingle on the front page of the Irish Times weekend review.
Sitting at a table is John Geraghty, the creator of the new website publin.ie, which lists the best pub deals on alcohol in more than 200 Dublin pubs. 0“It’s basically a site that tells you where the cheap drinks are. I’ve spent the past year doing the legwork finding out about special deals, which most of the pubs now do,” he says.
On the 12th of March the BBC travel website featured publin in a story about pub culture around Dublin City.
For great value
This winter, John Geraghty founded Publin, a site that lists more than 200 of Dublin’s cheapest pubs. Previously Geraghty ran pub-walking tours aimed at backpackers. Despite O’Reilly’s unexpected location under the Tara Street tram station, Geraghty’s favourite pub is a pleasant, open space tucked under 170-year-old arched ceilings, with a non-traditional, neo-gothic decor. “It’s not in the guidebooks, and you’re a whole lot more likely to get talking to Irish people than elsewhere,” Geraghty said. Students, bankers and local office workers gather at the pub, making it a prime place to rub shoulders with locals.
In the May issue of Stellar magazine, Publin got a great mention. In the A-Z of Dublin, P was for Publin.
“Money is tight, we know, so paying €7 for a vodka and tonic in one bar when it’s just €5.50 in one next door is a crime. So what’s a girl to do? Enter Publin.ie. “The aim of the site is to give users the opportunity to plan their night out based around the price and quality of Dublin pubs”, explains creator John Geraghty. “It’s not just about prices. It’s also quality of pubs and the diversity that they offer. By that I mean craft beer pubs, themeed pubs, pubs with beer gardens, wifi, etc”. Clever, right? Check Publin.ie now for a special STELLAR-inspired pub crawl and be sure to follow @publinie on twitter. Oh, and, as awlays, drink responsibly.”
As Stellar magazine features heavily in RTE’s ‘Fade Street’, we made a special Fade Street pub crawl for the occasion.
What it does: Locates cheapest pint in Dublin.
What it says: “Publin is Dublin’s only pub price comparison and deal-listing website.”
How you save: before you head out for a tipple, check out Publin’s price guide to see where you can enjoy a night out without breaking the bank.
On the 13th of January 2013, Thejournal.ie featured a story about an interactive map of Dublin pubs from 1969 that we created a few days previous. Link
The article was the most shared item on social media that day and it also trended in their Dublin section.
