10 great bars for a BBQ this summer


Summer is fast approaching and we’ll all be spending as much time outside as possible. So, with that in mind, we’ve put together a list of pubs and bars that do BBQs throughout the summer months both for small groups and large bookings.

Be sure to mention Publin when you’re making an inquiry.

Here’s some of your options.


The Odeon


The Odeon on Harcourt street have been throwing BBQ bashes on their terrace for a few years now and the feedback has been good. Their BBQ is on Thursday to Saturday from 5pm and you can get great group bookings for €11.50 per person. If you’re going without a booking each grill item is €7, and you can add a glass of prosecco to that for €12. If you book for a group before May 1st you get 10% off. Also, going on a Thursday night would mean there’s lots of 2 for 1 cocktail offers.





Grafton Lounge



Grafton Lounge have a wide range of options to suit your group booking. They have silver, gold, and platinum packages starting at €12.95 per person. The platinum package includes a pig on a spit! That would be some way to celebrate the summer. With your group booking (minimum 40 people) they would also give you an area inside where you can party until late on the dance floor with their DJs. You can check out their very extensive menu by this link.



Alfie Byrnes



Alfie Byrnes on Earlsfort terrace have a very nice terrace at the front of the bar that they will be running all summer. They’ve got a huge selection of Irish and international craft beers, as well as a burger and a pint of Galway Bay beer for €10. They take inquiries about group bookings.
