Yes, takeaway pints are back, and just in time to ring in the New Year!
It's beginning to feel a little like Groundhog Day around here. We all hoped this New Year's Eve would be a bit different to last year's, and there are some differences to be sure. But with pubs and restaurants closing at 8pm, it looks like you'll be ringing in the New Year from home. Here's a few Dublin spots back doing takeaway pints for the occasion.
While McSorley's of Ranelagh hoped to host people for New Year's Eve, they have adapted to the times and reverted to takeaway drinks. You can eat or drink indoors until 8pm, and then avail of takeaway pints from thereafter until 10pm.
