Welcome to the
Oval BarEstablished in 1820, The Oval Bar is an authentic Irish Pub situated idyllically in the heart of Dublin City. Housed by a beautiful Victorian building with most of its period features still intact, The Oval is the perfect place to escape from the hectic hustle and bustle of the city outside. Located on Middle Abbey Street right at the hub of commercial life in the city, The Oval Bar provides a haven of welcome and warmth for office workers on lunch, busy shoppers looking to recharge their batteries, visiting tourists looking for the ‘Craic’ and music, cinema and theatre goers looking for a bite to eat and a drink before or after their show.
Once you step inside you will experience the relaxed and convivial nature of this charming pub. Our Staff are welcoming and friendly and will ensure that your stay is a pleasant one, as you would expect from any of the Chawke Pub Group establishments. With over 3 floors of seating and a large function area with its own private bar facilities available to rent we can accommodate any size group. We also have an outdoor seating area for those lazy Dublin summer evenings.
The Oval has long been renowned as an exceptional place to watch ‘the match’, we show all the major sporting events on our widescreen HD LCD TVs and has also a great atmosphere for pre or post match celebrations for patrons going to and from GAA Headquarters, Croke Park.
Not to mention that we are practically on the St Patrick’s Day parade route.
The Oval – home of the best Pint of Guinness in Dublin, try it, you won’t be disappointed!
