‘A Bowl of Water, and a Packet of Winalot, Please’ – 4 Dog-Friendly Pubs for International Pet Day

We, here, at Travel2Ireland like dogs…and pubs. So, we’ve lazily put the two together to form a small list of dog-friendly establishments where International Pet Day can be properly celebrated.

So, forget ‘Bring Your Pet to Work Day’; bring them to the pub instead.

The Barbers Bar, Stoneybatter

Uber-cool Stoneybatter is a mecca for thirsty dogs, with canine drinkers not only welcome in this popular haunt, but also – apparently – having been known to have their own birthday celebration nights here too. Seriously!

The Hill, Ranelagh/Rathmines

The Hill has undergone a number of mini-transformations in recent years, but – while always a great pub – has lately become a bona fide very pet-friendly popular Ranelagh/Rathmines local, akin to another nearby classic pub, the fabulous Birchall’s. Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights find the place rammed, and not just with humans. Well before Covid, nearby Ranelagh wine bar The Exchequer launched a pet-friendly policy, allowing four legged guests to accompany two-legged friends.

The Bath, Bath Avenue, Beggars Bush

This beloved watering hole in the shadow of Aviva Stadium is one of the best known pet friendly establishments, and a long time firm favourite tipple post for thirsty canines.

Ryan’s/Sandymount House, Sandymount

Sandymount is blessed with having two of the best locals in Dublin – Ryan’s/Sandymount House; and nearby O’Reilly’s; both of which are steeped in history and tradition and have been around since the dawn of time, seemingly. Both are extremely pet-friendly, too…but Sandymount House makes the list by dint of sometimes having a 50:50 ratio of dogs-to-humans coming through its doors, with some of the regulars also being mistaken for their canine companions on occasion.

The Cat and Cage, Drumcondra

Despite, its name, this classic north Dublin pub is extremely dog friendly; so much so that it’s one of the few that is actually known for its pro-pet policy. Dogs are allowed inside and dog bowls are provided on request.

Additionally, there are now more than 40 hotels around Ireland which allow guests to be accompanied by their pet.
