Location and contact

Situated on picturesque Haddington Road, Ballsbridge, The 51 is a modern, spacious pub in the heartland of Dublin 4. The 51 is part of the Quinn group and features one of the largest collections of whiskey from around the world. We do a lovely Sunday Carvery, carvery lunch Monday to Friday, and an evening meal deal Monday to Saturday. The evening meal deal is any main course and a drink (pint or longneck, glass of wine or soft drink) for only €14.

Slightly disappointed with the atmosphere. Food and drink were also a fair value but nothing special.

Staff are excellent and drip with charisma. Food at a great price. Great atmosphere at the bar. Crazy good prices on special beers and ciders every week. Hopknut is delicious and a hidden gem. All and all highly recommend this pub!
