We're absolutely devastated to let you know that The Bernard Shaw and Eatyard will close its doors for good in October.

The beloved pub posted to their website as well as their Instagram and Twitter accounts to announce the end of their Bernard Shaw adventure, and we'd be lying if we said we didn't shed a tear.

"At the end of October 2019 we will close the Shaw, Eatyard, all organisational, art and performance spaces and everything else in the building and yards – for good. We've tried really hard over the last few months to renew the lease, stay on longer, or buy the place. A lot of things didn't go our way over the last 12 months either, but it's out of our hands now unfortunately."

They continued; "We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who was part of this 13-year adventure. Our landlord, our neighbours & the council were by and large all brilliant and very helpful & supportive.

"The artists, makers, designers, bands, DJs, promoters, hustlers and lunatics who did their thing at the Shaw – we couldn't have done it without you. We have had amazing, loyal customers, many who came, and left, and came back again over those 13 years as life got in the way while we were busy making plans and being busy fools."

They made sure to thank their crew;

"Past and present we have had incredible people work with us. Everything we do is about people…. their ideas, trying things out, making a mess of it, trying again, getting it right, having fun, making memories, and when the party's over, lets plan another party."

Their last paragraph honestly sent us straight to the tissue box;

"Parties weren't meant to last… Dublin is changing, we can all see and feel it but we are going nowhere and we won't go down without a fight. We'll start something else, somewhere else (plans are afoot), and keep fighting the good fight.

"There are so many young creative, clever, smart people in Dublin & Ireland at the moment – there's lots to be optimistic about – but they need the spaces to meet each other, make plans, and make them happen!" they added.

Both the Bernard Shaw and Eatyard will remain open as usual until the end of October; "We'll have more info, lineups, events, wakes, next steps out over the next few days and weeks."

Over the last few weeks, Ireland has been treated to plenty of sunny spells and this weekend looks set to be the most glorious yet. 

Any Dubliner worth their weight in Leap cards will know that a big bag o' cans by the canal is the best way to chill out on those warm summer evenings, however, recent incidents have left the old tradition in jeopardy. 

Littered canal banks have become a familiar sight as those making the most of the sunshine have failed to clean up after themselves, leaving the local community to deal with the mess.

In an effort to encourage people to be more responsible with their rubbish, The Bernard Shaw in Rathmines will be handing out bin bags this weekends. 

Once filled with litter found along the canal, customers must return the bag in exchange for a free pint of Brewtonic beer. 

It's win-win! 


Don your leopards, single ladies, because a Beyoncé fitness class has come to town. 

The class is by Fearless Moves, a dun fitness initiative that combines epic tunes with an energetic work out. 

The next session, on Saturday January 27, is the Beyoncé Edition, and frankly we wouldn't miss it for the world (new year, new us, right?).

Hosted in The Bernard Shaw, the circuit class promises to make you sweat, but beginners are welcome. 

Oh, and Ivy Park gear definitely is not an essential. 

'The session will feature a live DJ and instructor who have been challenged to come up with a Beyoncé-versus deadly divas remix for the class,' reads the event description.

Best of all, the ticket to the class includes a super healthy brunch which will be served after. 

After all, it couldn't be Beyoncé themes without a little luxury, right?

Tickets are priced at €31.97 and are available here.


St Stephen's Day is probably the best day during the festive season.

We know that Christmas Day is great for food and presents and family, but Stevie's Day is when the pubs re-open and you go out to have the craic with your mates.

Well, the Bernard Shaw pub is welcoming back its Stephen's Day Father Ted tradition, and we can't wait.

The South Richmond Street pub has been putting on the event for a good few years now, but they're promising this one to be bigger and better than ever.

On the day, there will be a quiz, a costume competition and a deadly DJ.

Doors open at 6pm, with the quiz kicking off at 7pm. See you there?
