pubs near the aviva stadium

we are travelling next weekend to Dublin for the Ireland V England Rugby Friendly(lol) and wondered what are the best pubs around the ground for a beer before and after the game

Also going on Friday night to watch Saints V Leinster staying at the Maldron cardiff lane, how long will it take us to get there please?

Staying at the Maldron - walk out the door, turn right , go up Cardiff Lane / Macken St under the rail bridge, take a left , go over the canal bridge and you'll see Martin Slattery's red pub in the distance - or you could keep walking up Shelbourne Rd to the bridge at Ballsbridge where there 4 quality pubs and plenty of restaurants as well

Maldron hotel to Donnybrook (where Leinster v Saints game is on) is about 30-40 minutes walk, probably about a 20 minute walk from hotel to the Aviva stadium.

Decent bars around the stadium on the Saturday would be Slatterys right beside the ground, particularly if it's a nice day. Also 'the 51' on Haddington Road is always lively on match days.

On Friday night, Kielys bar right beside the stadium in Donnybrook is the only option.

Scruffy murphys pub ( powers court/ left turn off mount street) is good for after the game if you are heading back into town, Theres always a good after match crowd in there and its away from the stadium so youll be able to get in and hopefully a seat.

Near to the ground as in about 10-15 mins away, you have a few in ballsbridge like crowes, paddy cullens, then up pembroke road toward baggot street you have the waterloo and searsons, All are popular before and after games.

It's like the holly and ivy drinkers at Christmas, nothing is normal.

The information you glean in Kielys on Friday will sustain you through Saturday.

I passed by the strip of pubs opposite the RDS on Saturday where Crowes and other pubs are located. The footpath had been hoarded off with Guinness signage etc. It all looked very cosy. We had a few scoops in the Gingerman Pub beside the Davenport hotel and it was very good. Passing back through Baggott Street and there were plenty of people out on the footpath outside the pubs all enjoying themselves. So, lots of choice.
