The Pub Club is a social group in Ireland that meets in the pub. It’s about appreciating local pubs and meeting new people over a pint. We organise nights or afternoons out in a local pub, where everybody is welcome to come along. You can bring a friend if you like, drink at your own pace and leave whenever you want.

Another aspect of the group is to promote local breweries and distilleries where possible (although people can of course drink whatever they like on a night out!).

You can find more information on what the pub club is about here.

There is currently one Pub Club in Portlaoise — do contact us (see below) if you are interested in starting your own Pub Club. We’ll do our best to help you out.
