Where to get a pig on a spit in Dublin pubs

So the standard BBQ just isn’t tickling your fancy anymore. You want something new, something bigger, something grander. Well, there’s a few pubs in Dublin where you can order a whole pig on a spit for your big party occasion. What could be a better centrepiece to your party than a whole hog? We’ve found a few places that will make your piggy wish come true. We realise there’s a difference between pig on a sit and suckling pig, but we’ve added the two into this list.


Bull and Castle



The restaurant downstairs in the Bull and Castle have an amazing meat selection thanks to their long tradition of butchers in the F.X. Buckley family. Their suckling pig dining feast will serve 8-14 people, depending on how hungry they are. It’s served with applce sauce, duck fat roast potatoes, maple roasted carrot and parsnip with candied pecan nuts and blanched green beans sautéed with bacon lardons and shalots. It also comes with a generous selection of starters and deserts as well as a complimentary cheese plate.

You’ll just have to give them at least 4 days notice to get it all ready for you. Sound good? You can book via (01) 475 1122 or



Grafton Lounge



If you’re having a big big party, then a Grafton Lounge BBQ might well be for you. They do a package for up to 80 people that includes a pig on a spit, and sides of baked potato, mixed leaf salad, homemade slaw, cheddar cheese, and a selection of sauces. The package runs at €1,500, but remember, that’s for 80 people and a real dining spectacle. You get a whole area of the outside and the bar to yourselves on this package.
