Our Beer Garden

McGowans has been a central fixture of Phibsboro for over 70 years now. Come rain or shine we’ve always been here to serve the community and give you the perfect Dublin pub experience whenever you need it. But on those days when the sun is out, and the talk turns to having a pint outside, where can you go to get a good spot without having to fight through the crowds for a table? Well…we’re right here for you with our beer garden.

One of the most popular spots in the pub, even on those nights when it’s been raining, customers love the atmosphere of our beer garden. It’s an intimate spot for a catch-up and good chat while the weather is nice.

Anyone for a sunny pint?

When you’re looking for a reliable beer garden, we have you covered in all senses of the word. Our beer garden is a favourite amongst customers all year round; whether you’re looking for somewhere to take it easy during the day or fancy doing a bit of mingling during one of our famous single’s nights. It’s a little oasis away from all the hustle and bustle of the day. There’s nothing better than a few friends out in the garden having a catch-up and splitting one of our signature pizzas with each other.

Cocktails at McGowans Beer Garden

If you’re not too keen on a pint, don’t forget that we have an unbeatable cocktail range here at McGowans. You can chill out in the sun sipping on a mojito, daiquiri or enjoying one of our drinks promos that run throughout the week.
