Head North into the lovely Phibsborough and you’ll come across The Back Page
. A neighborhood staple, and by far the most underrated pub in Dublin.
When you first walk in, it looks like your typical pub. Cozy, dark, drinks flowing. Then you keep going and you realize how INSANELY big it is. Over its two floors, you’ll find:
Game rooms, complete with ping pong (they host weekly tournaments!), darts, foosball, snooker, FIFA, a PS4, a Nintendo Wii, and an Xbox One for your entertainment.
the Back Page has some truly spectacular food, made all the more delicious by their extremely reasonable prices. They focus mainly on pizza, but paying a visit and only experiencing their pizza would be such a mistake, because they have SO much more to offer!
Starting with their ‘bits and bobs’ menu which is a far cry from normal pub grub. All of their options sound mouthwatering, but our favorite was the cheeseboard.
Picky eaters fear not, they offer the option to create your own custom pizza with 40 different personalization options. Their dough is sourdough based and both the dough and sauce are handmade. They unfortunately aren’t coeliac friendly, but they are Vegan friendly and will happily whip you up a Vegan pizza if asked! And for all you dip lovers, they have an entire dip MENU with offerings ranging from garlic mayo to hummus, pesto and even jam.
The best part? They’re open EVERY day, rain or shine, so no need to worry if you require pizza, pints and ping pong on a Monday evening. Visit on a weekday between 4pm – 630pm and you can get any pizza and a pint or a glass of wine for €12, which is spectacular. I can guarantee that once you visit this is a place you’ll continue to visit for years to come.
