About Hole In The Wall

Hole in the Wall dates as far back as 1651, the medieval Inn was then called 'Ye sign of ye Blackhorse Inn'. It was enjoyed historically as a coaching house and as a tavern.


Today, driving along Blackhorse Avenue you will catch sight of the imposing Tudor style exterior of the Hole in the Wall, first impressions
are lasting. It is exactly 100 metres long qualifying it as the longest pub in Europe.


This pub nestles against the Phoenix park wall. It combines the merits of a Dublin cosmopolitan city pub with the pure, fresh air and amenities of the 1700 acre Phoenix Park. This makes it a unique destination pub in Dublin to visit.


Hole in the Wall has a rare mixture of antiquity and character throughout, attention to detail has always been paramount. Everything has been carefully selected to compliment the ambience that characterises the pub, with roaring fires in the winter months adding to its atmosphere, and a beer garden in summertime to chill and relax.


Hole in the Wall gastro-pub offers a daily fresh extensive menu. The Wine shop has a splendid selection of world wines where one can carefully choose their wine with free corkage to drink, enjoy and compliment their food. The Hole in the Wall staff and team aim to achieve a blend of hospitality, friendliness and efficiency, and we trust that your visit with us will be very enjoyable and a good experience.

A wonderful meal, with great staff, especially the chap from Hong Kong...he did make us laugh, and gave an excellent service. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone. If we ever visit Dublin again, we will be sure to visit Hole In The Wall.

Absolutely excellent food as always - chicken wings are a definite must have. The waiter was brilliant - unfortunately didn’t catch a name but extremely friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We’ll definitely be back.

13 of us had lunch here. The food was delicious and the service efficient. Only feedback from the group was there could be better vegetarian options.

Not sure when the TVs went into the restaurant but they don't work. In the bar, fine, but I really don't think they work in the restaurant, especially for the tables with TVs over them! :-( That said, service was great, food was great

We had the piri piri wings on the day and found them to be over soaked in the spice which made them inedible. It was a busy day and the service was not bad but not at the level I experienced before. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the surroundings jut felt let down by the quality of the food on this occasion

Portion size on the ham and turkey was very poor and chips were not good. Vegetarian option was very good.

As always not disappointed, fantastic food and value for money the EB option is exceptional. The portions are huge, with starters leaving very little room for the main course. We have 2 first time visitors with us and they were in awe of the place, food and value. Keep up the good work.

Love the venue and atmosphere. Loads of wood and nooks and crannies. Staff always very friendly and welcoming. Food is good food pub grub not ground breaking but very decent. Lovely to take a walk in the park and call in the way home either for a Sunday lunch or a drink in the evening.
