For 25 years, The George has been the queen of the Dublin’s gay scene, entertaining customers with its themed nights, international guest performances and friendly atmosphere.

The bar has two late-night dance areas and an impressive garden – perfect for summer nights. The George attracts a relatively young crowd, and straight allies are more than welcome to join the party.

Opened in 2019, The Pennylane is already a popular LGBTQ+ venue in Dublin. As the sister bar of Dublin’s popular PantiBar, the owners are well-versed in running a successful gay bar.

PantiBar is the premier party spot in Dublin. However, Pennylane offers a calmer alternative. It is the perfect spot for a nightcap, a date or catching up with friends. Be sure to check it out if you’re in Dublin!
