Looking to hire a place for great craic on your private party, birthday, engagement, or just for the heck of it? Dublin is a city that knows how to have a great time. With it’s engaging atmosphere and sense of fun, Dublin will definitely have something to offer whether your plans are big or small. Function rooms are for hire at so many of the city’s amazing selection of restaurants, hotels, halls and pubs that you’ll be spoilt for choice from the very start of your search.
Are you looking for a function room in a pub or perhaps a club? The high group energy of these types of venues is great when you are looking for a real knees up. Many of these venues will have private rooms for hire, or will let you hire out the whole venue. Check out clubs in Temple Bar, if you are looking to host a high energy younger crowd. Also consider heading over to the Liberties district and the city’s oldest pub, The Brazen Head, which dates back to 1198. Pubs are a great choice for function rooms as their atmosphere can’t be beat and many will have a separate smaller room tucked away from the taproom. Larger pubs, like The Stag’s Head in Dame Court, may often even have several rooms on offer. Many of these venues will let you have the room upon reservation and without extra fees, check with the venue first, though.
If you are considering a hall for a larger group there are many venues such as hotels and community halls dotted throughout the city. Thomas Prior Hall in Ballsbridge, for example, is a historic building that has been repurposed as a large group venue. For bigger events such as a wedding or conference, this type of location would be ideal. The Banking Hall on College Green is another great choice if you need to host a large group and are looking to enjoy the ambience of a building that dates back to 1868. These types of venues are great for larger groups, not least because bespoke packages offer the opportunity to avoid separate costs for catering or set up.
If you would rather take your private party out to dine, don’t worry, the city’s foodie scene is legendary. Many restaurants and hotels in Dublin are ready to accommodate parties of a certain size in private rooms for a full fine dining experience. Depending on the size of the restaurant these types of venues can hold somewhere around 30+ seated up to around 50 or so standing. These are great not just for celebratory meals, they are also suitable for receptions or other official events.

We recommend hiring a function room in Dublin around 3-4 months in advance. This will give you enough time to find the right venue, make arrangements with suppliers, and ensure availability on your preferred date. However, if you are planning a larger event or one during the holiday season, you may need to make your booking even earlier. It's always best to start your search early and book your function room as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
There are several things you can do to hire a function room on a budget. Firstly, research multiple function rooms in Dublin and compare their rates, services, and amenities to find the best deal. With Tagvenue, that will be easy! Next, you can choose an off-peak date when hire rates might be lower. Select a venue in adequate size. Don’t pay for a too-large space you won’t be using, but of course make sure your guests are comfortable. Don't be afraid to negotiate with the venue and ask for a better rate or additional perks, such as complimentary room rental or discounted catering. You can also ask for special rates, as many venues offer discounts and packages when the hire market is slow.
