A definitive list by that will only get longer of pubs that are not allowing 12 pubs of Christmas groups onto their premises this year.

    There has to be a hand-rubbing publican somewhere that’s only delighted to cater for the eejits.

    The bloody headline not “catering” for xmas jumpers, The HEADLINE. No amount of craft beer and pretentiousness can change the fact it’s the bloody headline. Also no one does the 12 pubs around this area not enough pubs congregated in the area for it.

        There’s 2 pubs right beside it. But after 3 pubs who wants to start walking 10mins for your four pub.

      It’s well for any boozer that’s willing to turn away trade. I cannot abide stunt sessions like12 Pubs/jumpers but chacun á son gout. Try this mullarkey on the clientele of any pub outside Dublin and you’d be pulling down the shutters toot sweet.

    Hahaha! It had to happen sometime. I started seeing lads dressed up in full Rudolf onesies a couple of years ago, and one of them had pissed himself and just carried on drinkin, like a true soldier

    Christmas in Dublin has gone to sh*t! I for one blame the culchies, students and financiers the lot of them!

        Not until till the last train out on Dec 24.
        Tis a magical peaceful evening in the city then and the finest time for a pint.

          I was in the Vanilla Pod in Carrickmines recently and heard this fule who looked like an ugly Ryan Tubridy and sounded like Ross O’Carroll-Kelly was wanging on about mucksavages ruining some pub or other. If I could have successfully delivered a wedgie on him, I’d have done it. Instead I glared balefully at the back of his head.

    Will the bar staff or door staff be questioning everyone entering the premises to determine if they are partaking in a 12 pubs? If not then what they’re really saying is “we won’t be having any groups in high spirits coming into our den of misery.”

    If 30 people turn up for work drinks and 2 of them are wearing christmas jumpers will they throw them out and risk losing all 30?

      Work drink groups? Worse again. People who normally wouldn’t hang out with each other being fake and matey matey.

      I remember on one Christmas do my boss told me “I visualised myself driving my Mercedes and now here I am driving that Mercedes. That’s what you’ve got to do.”
      Work nights out. I’d rather not thanks.

      That’s why you shouldn’t work in the service sector. Cop on. Every one of these incidents is different to the other, staff have the cop on to judge each group and decide whether they’re going to be a nuisance or not.

      1. ReproBertie

        Cop on or no cop on, the staff in this pub are being denied that decision. A policy has been introduced. I worked as a doorman for years and the only time we ever had hassle was when the bar manager decided, for no obvious reason, that we should have a blanket ban on group A or B. This policy is a similarly stupid policy as well as possibly an attempt to draw the anti-Christmas jumper crowd.

        1. D2dweller

          A policy refusing people that are aiming to drink 12 drinks in one short period is stupid? And you were a doorman?
