Been put in charge of trying to find the perfect venue for a work do? Have a surprise birthday you need to plan and looking for a bar with a bit of charm? Just need a good space in Phibsboro for throwing a big bash?

McGowans is the best party venue in North Dublin. With our mixture of bars and spaces for hire, you’ve found the ideal venue for any event.

Here is some information on the types of events we can cater for and how to get in touch.

Birthday Parties

You never know whether everyone you’ve invited is going to show up for a birthday party. You need a space that suits any sized crowd. Part of our ground floor can accommodate groups from 10 to 100 no problem at all.

Giving everyone easy access to the bar, beer garden and smoking area helps to check a number of pitfalls off the list. If you want certain food made and a few party platters lined up for guests, just get in touch and let us know what you’re thinking of to see how we can help.

Hen Dos

Avoid the nightmare that is trying to have a Hen Do in the middle of town and book somewhere you know the bride and all her pals can have a good bit of craic and not spend half the night trying to find each other.

The Cocktail Lounge is the ideal spot for small groups who will be sharing a few bottles of bubbly, taking their pick from our delectable cocktail menu, and getting involved in some cheeky group games.

Stag Parties

What’s better than telling the stag you have the Rock & Roll area at McGowans booked? It’s all about creating a party atmosphere, and we welcome Stag Dos to McGowans with a bar that is practically made for a top lad’s night out.

If you’re planning to have it on a Saturday, let us know in advance so we can get some buckets of beer sorted (let us know what the Stag’s favourite is). We’ll set everyone up with a proper feed in the evening and then get you upstairs to the nightclub; you can even put a word in with the DJ to get some of your favourite tunes thrown in the mix at some point.

Corporate Events

There’s an umbrella of event types that fall under corporate events. You could be trying to book a room for events that are a cross between a product launch, a leaving party, office night out or networking event.

McGowans is the perfect spot for booking corporate events in North Dublin. The upstairs area is a big enough space for larger offices to have a party or hold a big party or an important work event. The space is also used as a unique spot for product launches.

Club Events

Have a local club that has cause for celebration? Book in to treat yourselves at the Cocktail Lounge where you can toast victory! It’s a good space for housing 20-30 people comfortably.
