The Bottle Boy

The Bottle Boy began life in 1860, and was primarily known as a Spirit Grocers. A quirk of a Spirit Grocers was that you couldn’t sit down and beer was sold in bottles brought to you by The Bottle Boy. Whilst we’ve retained tonnes of the original detail – like the cornices, fireplaces, flooring – we’ve added in cosy snugs and lots of seating, perfect for a pint of plain. The Bottle Boy is one of many pubs near 3 Arena. So why not grab a pre-gig or pre-show drink at The Bottle Boy before attending a gig at 3Arena or a show at Bord Gais Energy Theatre.

The Bottle Boy is a proper cosy pub with snugs, open fire, a courtyard – and a barbers. The Green Dolphin Barbers are set up and on hand for a blade, a fade or whatever you’re having yourself.
