Dublin: -1°C Thursday 6 May 2021

These are the top three Dublin pubs to watch the rugby in this Saturday

Get the green on.

IRELAND PLAY FRANCE in the Six Nations this Saturday afternoon.

Many’s the pint will be jostled and green collar popped, but where are the absolute best places in the city to do it?

Kielys of Donnybrook

When are you coming to visit?

Argubly Dublin’s rugby pub mecca, Kielys is perfectly set up for a Saturday afternoon of rugby watching.

From the carvery (which is a little pricey at around €15 but you are in D4 after all) to the fine selection of screens and decent Guinness on tap, a little tip is to secure a seat near the back near the food section. They pull down a big screen when the match is about to start and you have a perfect vantage point.

Slattery’s of Beggars Bush

When it comes to rugby, Slattery’s mean business. You can book VIP tables at the front (from €60 including a €100 bar tab), it’s great for big crowds and there is an abundance of tellies to catch the action on.

Harry’s of Clontarf

If you fancy a Northside pub, then Harry Byrne’s in Clontarf  is a solid choice.

Plenty of screens, great atmosphere and a solid rugby backbone:

Get there early enough for decent seats, and they might even have the BBQ on the go.
