Sure, you can hand your phone in behind the bar in most pubs and it’ll be perfectly safe. But, there’s another option that means you don’t have to queue up or bother the bar staff when you want to check on your phones battery.
A number of pubs in Dublin have a phone charger box. With these boxes, you pay a few quid, stick the phone in a safe, pin/lock protected, box, and leave it to charge for a little bit.
Here’s the pubs that we’ve found that have these charger boxes. We’ll add more as we find them. This could be handy info if you don’t have a charger and need a bit of juice on the phone.

Murrays, O’Connell Street
