As the referendum count will be shown on both RTE and TV3, it’s likely that quite a few pubs will be showing the results live, but we’ve put together a list of pubs that will definitely be showing it on their screens. It’s likely that it will be on in Panti bar, but we’ve haven’t seen any confirmation online, so that’s why it’s not currently on the list. RTE coverage is from 10-12 and 2-4, while TV3 will begin at 4pm. Judging by previous referendums the results will likely come out in the 2-4pm slot.
If you know of other bars showing the count, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

The 51 bar
The 51 on Haddington road has plenty of screens and they have a meal and a drink deal for €12. Menu link.
The Front Lounge
The Front Lounge on parliament street is a gay bar, so there should be a good crowd in here hoping for a yes vote. They have a ‘results brunch’ on Saturday and will be showing the eurovision later. It’s likely to get busy in here for the night, so you’re advised to get in early. Menu link.
TV3 will be broadcasting live from Dublin’s best known gay bar on Saturday. It’s sure to be a rocking atmosphere.
