Our guide to Dublin venue hire
Need to hire a venue in Dublin, but not sure where to begin? Whether you are looking for a place to hold a birthday party, a reception or meeting, this city will have something to suit your needs. When getting your search started, it’s always helpful to plan ahead for whatever kind of event you are imagining. When launching your hunt for a venue you might want to consider these questions:
What kind of venue do you need? With its eclectic mix of old and new, Dublin offers an amazing selection of venues for all sorts of events. Historic and beautiful function rooms are on offer, as are modern and stylish venues. Restaurants and pubs are all used to hosting high quality hire events, as are the city’s plethora of hotels. Choose the right space and vibe to suit your needs.
Do you know how many will be attending? Prices for venues in Dublin can vary wildly from exclusive high priced hotels, mid-range meeting rooms to function rooms in lower cost pubs or cafes. Fees are generally charged per person. Some venues will allow you to book a room or an area for free - although they might ask for a minimum spend. Pubs in the centre, near Temple Bar or Ballsbridge, might be more pricey than those in the suburbs.
Will you need to offer refreshments or play music? Check your catering options before you book. If you are planning for an event in a restaurant, it’s easy, of course. However, if you need outside caterers, you should check to make sure that they will support outside catering. Venues with live music are not hard to locate in Dublin - check out Smithfield for a start - nor is it hard to find a DJ. However, unless they are off licence, you may run into some restrictions in terms of hours.
Do you need to transport guests? The city centre is a good option if you need to transport guests from the airport. Rail and bus links are also quite good. But Dublin is also a great city for walking. You can cross a multitude of neighborhoods in no time at all. Don’t be afraid to look in the districts outside of the centre Chapelizod, Castleknock and Dalkey are all unexpected districts ready to offer you and your guests a new perspective for your next Dublin event.
How much will it cost to hire a venue in Dublin? For receptions and parties at restaurants or pubs, most costs run per person and can cost anywhere between €30-60 per person. However, many of these venues are happy to reserve you a space for free as long as you are ready to eat and drink in number. If you are looking to hire a space for a meeting or conference you can expect to pay around €100-500 hire fee/ per session. Weddings are a bit more costly and estimated expenses for venue hire for a wedding in the city are expected to range around €8,515 hire fee/per session. A Dublin area castle hire for a wedding can run you upwards of €12,855
