McGowans is passionate about putting Irish sports in the spotlight. We’re based just down the road from the famous Croke Stadium, home of the GAA, and we’re proud to show Gaelic sports in our bar.
We’re known for many things here at McGowans; our nightlife, our beers, our seasonal cocktails, and our delicious food, but first and foremost, we’re known for being one of the best sports bars in downtown Dublin for a smashing night out.
If you’re a GAA fan, you’re in luck! Whether it’s hurling, handball, football or any other GAA game you’re interested in, we have 16 TV screens to show your favourite sports on. If there’s something you want to see, ask us, and we’ll do our best to get it up for you. Check the fixtures here and come watch GAA events in Dublin!
Watch the GAA In Dublin
We love a good game here in Ireland! There’s nothing like getting everyone together for drinks and a match, celebrating Irish present and past through a bit of sporting tradition (no doubt with a pint of Guinness in hand!).
With plenty of screens to watch on, there’s no shortage of space at this GAA sports bar! We’ve got room for everyone and their pals!
At McGowans, we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you and your group to come out and watch GAA events. We know it can be difficult to find space for big groups in a bustling city like Dublin, so we take bookings for up to 10 people in all of our spaces. We also offer room rentals for bigger groups.
Food, Drink And GAA
Whether you’re celebrating a win or drowning your sorrows in cocktails, McGowans wants to ensure that you’re looked after while you’re with us.
We have a bounty of delicious food available until 10 pm. We don’t just make snacks; we’ve got everything from customisable pizzas to chef specials. If you need your dinner after a long day of sporting madness, we’ve got you covered.
We also offer a range of light bites like nachos and hot wings to keep you going as you watch the games. We’re happy to say we also offer vegetarian and vegan options for those with plant-based diets. McGowans is for everyone! Check out our menu here.
Did you know we’re also a cocktail bar? You won’t find anything less than the best here! Our cocktail range changes seasonally to use fresh ingredients and bring new flavours into the mix. If you’re looking for something a little simpler, don’t worry, we also have a fantastic selection of beers and spirits.
