Yes, it’s that season again – the 8pm curfew on hospitality means only one good thing. Takeaway pints!

Did we think this trend was gone for good when we came out of our last lockdown? Yes, yes we did. But life is full of surprises, and with the recent surge in Covid-19 cases, as well as the 8pm curfew on indoor venues, Dublin is once again embracing the quaint pleasure that is a takeaway pint. If you’re in town over the weekend, here’s the spots where you can nab one!

You can get a creamy pint of Guinness from The Grand Social between 8pm and 10pm.

You can find The Grand Social on Liffey Street.
