Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in The Oval!

Looking for the Best Pub to Visit This St. Patrick’s Day? The Oval Bar is on the parade route for the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade.  We are located a (very short) stones throw from O’Connell Street and the GPO main viewing area. The atmosphere around here on the 17th of March every year has to be experienced to be believed!  For the best craic in Dublin City be sure to pop by and soak-in some of the festival atmosphere! And if you haven’t tried our traditional Irish Stew yet you really are missing out, we get requests far and wide for the recipe…but it remains a very closely guarded secret!

We’ll be serving food from 12:30pm to 9pm this St. Patrick’s Day, for Breakfast right before the parade, or for something hearty after it!


We love sport here at The Oval Bar, and patrons heading to and from GAA headquarters Croke Park love to pop in to settle their nerves before a big match or celebrate/commiserate after the big match! We always have a friendly shoulder to cry on should your county not prevail, UP THE DUBS!  ‘Croker’ also plays host to international bands on the live music touring scene and we love to get in on the atmosphere, belting out their music and getting the fans ready for the gig. We show all sport on our screens – from the Rugby World Cup to the Ryder Cup, and everything in between!

Being so city-central The Oval is an ideal drop in and meeting point for revelers heading to The Abbey Theatre, The Gate Theatre, The Academy or any number of other venues, theatres, cinemas, clubs and shows dotted around beautiful Dublin.  The LUAS (Middle Abbey Street) stop is literally seconds away from our front door, as are all of the best city centre shopping outlets and department stores!
