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.

Christmas Jumper Gang In terms of recommendation I would highly recommend to my friends and family the hospitality that was demonstrated by all members of staff and the food was top notch. We shall return and our waiter was very accommodating and his name unfortunately evades us. "Excellent Bar and Restaurant and the decorations were outstanding which added to the atmosphere".

I regularly visit the Hole in the Wall with family and friends for drinks and food. My last visit was for dinner with two friends. The decorations are amazing and there’s always a great atmosphere. The service we received in the restaurant was frustratingly disappointing. Our waiter mixed up our order, was very slow to bring out the correct order, over charged on the bill and told my friend she couldn’t have coffee with her dessert. He said she’d have to have it before or after her dessert. He said the coffee came from a different department very far away. Small things were made seem like a big problem, it’s just not good enough and let’s this special place down.

Absolutely beautiful Christmas setting. Decorated to perfection and the wonderful smell of an open fire is not to be missed. We opted for the Turkey lunch, food was delicious. The staff here are an asset, very friendly.

Food was good. Service was the stand out. Coming from hospitality background was nice to see. Our baby sitter let us down so our table of 2 became 3. This was not an issue and we were brought to our seat. . Our order was taking 5 minutes after sitting down. We were asked during our meal was everything ok. All small things that make a difference. We'll done FOH
