Please note that this article is from 2016 and prices will likely have changed in that time.


As well all know, going for a pint in Dublin can be a bit expensive, especially when you’re on a budget. There are a few places that do offer some lower cost pints either all the time or at specific times during the day. What we define as cheap may vary to what you might think. We’re aiming at around the €4.00 and lower mark, but some for €4.50 are included because they’re craft beers that usually cost more.
