We are happy to receive your virtual visit and we hope to welcome you soon to our premises. We shall be delighted to treat you to an appealing variety of beverages and foods at reasonable prices. With us there’s always fresh Guinness to be had alongside many varieties of lager and cider, as well as “whiskey and wines of the best”. Our pub grub will not rival haute cuisine but it is tasty and filling. Many visitors remark on the exceptional quality of our Guinness and it is generally maintained that we pull the best pint in town. The owners of the place have looked far and wide and are yet to find evidence to the contrary.
Established in 1994 by David Larkin, a man who made history in the Romanian bar and pub industry, the Dubliner’s Irish Pub has been in continuous operation. After two decades of running the place, David decided to retire and write his memoirs. Petre Fumarel and Lucian Pavel, two old-time regulars and Irish culture aficionados took over from David in August of 2014, soon after the place’s twentieth anniversary. The two new owners have enthusiastically embarked on a mission to make the pub more comfortable and more attractive to its patrons, while preserving its original, legendary spirit.
The Dubliner, for two decades a social and community hub for expats and locals alike, is not merely a drinking place, but is viewed by many as an institution in its own right. Our regular customers, a charming mix of foreign and local people of all walks of life, virtually all knowing each other, create a warm and friendly environment in which the new visitor feels instantly at home.
Live matches of rugby and football are routinely enjoyed at The Dubliner; Sky Sports, BT Sports and local sports channels are available.
The Dubliner is also home to The Meds, one of the oldest dart teams of the Bucharest Thursday Darts League. Except during official league matches, usually played on Thursday nights, the dart board and scoring system is available to customers free of charge. And a spare set of darts can always be borrowed from the bar.
Traditional Irish music bands are a regular fixture at The Dubliner, with live concerts every St. Patrick’s Day and Halloween, as well as on other occasions.
The Wednesday Pub Quiz is a weekly event at The Dubliner. With free attendance, teams of two to five players compete against each other for the night’s prize, usually a 6-pint beer dispenser and a 100-lei bar tab. Each member of a winning team gets a number of points equal to the number of competing teams. The quiz master keeps a record of the points gathered by each participant over a period and determines a winner at the end of that period. For the season started in January of 2017, the winners were declared just before St. Patrick’s Day.
