Hooley Night at Johnnie Fox’s Pub

Situated on top of the Dublin mountains, Johnnie Fox’s is one of Ireland’s oldest and most famous traditional Irish pubs – and they are also famed as the highest pub in the country.

The Irish Hooley night in Johnnie Fox’s is the best way to experience all things Irish – food, drink, entertainment & the people. The moment the stage rises and the music fills the room, you can feel the magic in the air. As the show goes on, the energy in the room builds, you find yourself being transported to a different world. The atmosphere is electric, you can’t help but be swept up in the excitement of it all. Every moment is a feast for the senses, from the dazzling costumes to the fast beat choreography. By the time the show ends and the performers take their final bow, you’ll be left feeling exhilarated and amazed.

This pub is full of locals 7 nights a week so you are guaranteed that the food, drink and craic (Irish word for fun) is good!
