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.

Booked table in August only to be seated by a drafty door. Staff were accommodating & relocated us but after hearing such great things about the venue for Xmas was very disappointed with the lack of atmosphere & cheer. Food was good but wouldn’t go back

Our family had a lovely meal on Saturday evening, it’s part of our Christmas tradition & so glad we could continue it this year of all years when everything else was cancelled. Gorgeous food, amazing location and the decorations are just fab! Happy Christmas to you all. Well done for keeping everyone safe & feeling somewhat normal.

An absolutely fantastic evening spent in the most wonderful place, with such attentive staff and talented chefs, the food, the Gin Fizz, the banter, the red wine selection, the absolute ease in which they are managing the social distancing whilst maintaining the cosy spirit of the Hole in the Wall, I have always loved this place and its now gone next level ❤
