It can be a headache searching to find out what’s on in Dublin any night of the week. Take the stress out of it by always having McGowans in your back pocket when you need to be guaranteed you’ll have a good time out.

Open every night of the week, we always have something going on; from our legendary monthly Single’s Nights to the weekly pub quiz that will help you avoid getting the pre-work fear on a Sunday evening.

Need to know what we have throughout the week? Take a look and see if a night out in McGowans needs to be on the cards.

Singles Night

We all know dating these days is all about swiping right… but it doesn’t have to be.

Generally, on the first Friday of every month up in the upstairs area, we have our legendary Single’s Night. It’s a great night out for anyone who would rather say hello to a real face rather than simply to match all the time.

Our next singles night is still to be confirmed.. but we excited as ever to get back in the swing of things and make some matches!

Highlights of our Single’s Night includes Pub Tinder, the Traffic Light Ball, group games to break the ice, sneaky surprises, drinking games and so much more.

It’s a guaranteed great night if you’re single and definitely ready to mingle.

Thursday Night

Cheers to the weekend early with our classic Thirsty Thursday.

Take part in our famous smartphone quiz at 7pm… Absolutely not cheating!

Whether you’re done with Uni for the week, that’s the end of night shifts for a while, or you need a reason to attack the weekend before Friday is even on the calendar, Thirsty Thursday is here to help.

For those who go above and beyond at work, the Frontline Party every Thursday Night lets nurses, teachers and guards in for free in with Valid ID. It’s our way of saying thanks for all the hard work.

Super Sunday

We know what it’s like working in the industry. That’s why our Industry Night on Sundays is the ideal way for staff in the industry get to let their hair down as the weekend draws to a close.
