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.

Hi, We were waiting nearly an hour for our starters and just found the overall service wasn’t great . We had to ask on numerous occasions for water refills . Then just over all we didn’t find it was great value for money . Kind Regards Maeve

Distancing and hygiene very well managed. Very friendly welcome and our server was very efficient and extremely entertaining in his interaction with the children. Our food was very tasty and well presented. All in all, a very enjoyable experience for our first time dining out since lockdown.

Pork dish bad choice over cooked and dry. Requested apple sauce unfortunately none available as it would have help digest a bad meal!

I'm not 100% sure our table had been fully sanitised when we sat down. Also there was a lack of hand sanitisers at the entrance to restaurant part. Apart from that, I believe they made a good effort with the guidelines. The food as usual was very nice. The service is good if a bit chaotic. It was much quicker due to reduced capacity. I always feel that the service links isn't 100% integrated. I'd still go back and hope to do so soon

Lovely food but some mains items are pricey and not served with sides. Starters and desserts are amazing.

Felt like we were pushed into any corner. Very little social distancing. Way to over priced for what you get! Won't be returning
