The Gincident

The scene. It is a damp October evening. The rain relentlessly pelts against the dank Dublin streets and the hereunto humble Dublin paving stone turns sinister, splashing mucky puddle water that spoils our heroine’s best nylons. Up ahead Beer Street gleams with ale houses, its well fed citizens merrily going about their business, beakers of porter in hand. Our heroine glances furtively around and instead slips stealthily down a side street to Gin Lane, lured by promise of the heady juniper elixir. /Cut

Our Latest News

The first day of July will mark four years since we were lucky enough to take over L. Mulligan. Grocer. Our goal was to create a pub at the heart of the community that cared deeply about the products and people it serves. We believe Irish produce is special and worth celebrating and we hope we have done that justice since we opened.

We have been honoured over the last four years to have featured in so many celebrations and lovely times. It has been a Scotch-egg, craft beer fuelled joy and we look forward to the next four!  Thank you for your patience, your enthusiasm and for inviting us to be part of your stories. Without you all, Mulligans would not be the pub it is.

As you know, we have a little bit of a crush on our suppliers and many of them are joining our celebrations. We would love if you would join us.

Quiz Night. On Sunday 29th June 8.30PM we will be kicking off the celebrations early with our monthly quiz. We will be borrowing our 4-year old nephew's reading materials for question inspiration, so brush up on your Peter Rabbit and Lego trivia. There will be cake. 



Trouble Brewing New Beer Dinner. The first beer bought and paid for in Mulligan's was the Trouble Brewing Golden Ale. We have worked with Stephen, Paul and Thom over the last 4 years, stocking their tasty ales and making them endless cups of tea while they visited on 'sales calls'. When they were recently joined by new brewer Mark, we could not have been more pleased. The result is some delicious new beers from the lads. We are showcasing their new limited edition beers matched with a four course tasting menu on Thursday 3rd July. Still some tickets available here. There will be cake.

Brown Paper Bag Project Launch:Colin and Brian both once worked behind the bar in Mulligans while dreaming of brewing nutty brown ales and hopping Belgian blondes. They are now part of the Brown Paper Bag Project, a location-less brewery that travels the word brewing beer influenced by the brewing styles of the  region and the people they meet. They will be launching their newest beers on the afternoon of Saturday 5th July with a BBQ in our beer garden using produce from local suppliers. To secure a place contact them here. There will be cake (and perhaps novelty aprons).

Jaunty Hats, Rice Crispy Buns and General High-Jinks: Saturday 5th July from 6.30pm onward, we will be styling our moustaches, donning our jaunty hats, and generally getting dolled up to celebrate as all four year olds should: with rice crispy squares, fizzy drinks (ours will be craft beer) and bunting. There will be 'Sir' Jack's Black Pudding wontons, treats from Arun Bakery and staff selected beer & whiskey specials. If you plan to join us for the evening, we implore you to wear your finest headwear as there will be lovely craft beer giveaways for the finest clad heads.

Grocery Section Friday & Saturday: Historically, in Ireland the local pub also served as the off-license, grocery, tea blender and even undertaker. Every Friday and Saturday we harken back to our grocer roots, stocking the best of locally sourced products-- ranging from craft beer in refillable growler flasks,  retro sweets, Arun Bakery sourdough & Vl** baps, Irish farmhouse cheeses, Wall & Keogh teas, Gubbeen meats, 3FE coffee beans (we can even grind them for you), Dublin Kombucha, Ballyhoura Mushroom Powders, Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oils, Jams, Sauces and jars of tasty bacon jam. We are delighted to announce that we are teaming up with Kate from Wildflour Bakery. You can now buy Kate's amazing cakes each Saturday, and place orders with us by Thursday for bespoke cakes and mixed boxes. We are all about the cake this month. 


Trouble Brewing Dinner with New Trouble Beers

Four years ago this Tuesday, the first beer was bought and paid for in the newly opened L. Mulligan. Grocer. The beer was Trouble Brewing Golden Ale. We have proudly worked with Stephen, Paul and Thom since that day, stocking their tasty ales, pestering them to continue brewing limited edition brews and supplying endless cups of tea during 'sales calls'. 

When they were recently joined by new brewer Mark, we could not have been more pleased. Mark's arrival has led to the development of some tasty limited edition beers, including a Saison, a strong IPA, a brown ale (the delightfully monikered 'Big Brown Bear Brown Ale') and a red rye. We are excited to showcase these new beers matched with a four course tasting menu on Thursday 3rd July. Still some tickets available via https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/trouble-brewing-dinner-tickets-11988687487 It is going to be a brilliant night. 


Cake Stall Friday 11th, Saturday 12th April

Adam has just emerged from the kitchen covered in a light dusting of icing sugar, while Garry is furiously researching the structural suitability of digestives as a cake base and Michael is strutting around, confident that his shortbread making skills will stand up to scrutiny. This Friday and Saturday we are holding a cake stall, in aid of Temple Street Hospital.

Please come along, have a slice of cake or a bun, or take some home with you for a lovely cup of tea and make a donation in aid of Temple Street. It is going to be fairy-cake-tastic.

Coisbo Beer Dinner

We met the chaps from Coisbo at the Alltech Brews and Food conference, and were so impressed with their beers that on the first night we offered to buy from them anything left over at the end of the festival. As luck would have it all of their beers won medals in the Dublin Beer Cup, and one of their beers, the Russian Imperial Stout was crowned the overall champion. The thirsty masses descended  and there was not a lot left for us to bring back to Stoneybatter. We decided to put the precious cases we have to good use and pair them with the best of Irish produce for a small beer dinner on Wednesday. To book email table@lmulligangrocer.com
