Finding beer from Ireland's craft breweries can be a daunting task. We are not yet at the stage where one can walk into any pub in Ireland and find something brewed locally. However, the beer is available and for the discerning drinker it is simply a matter of knowing where to look.

To this end, Beoir has created this directory of bars and restaurants where Irish craft beers can normally be found. This list is kept up-to-date by the community and corrections and additions are welcome by e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or simply add a new entry yourself.

To add an entry, we'd like to have as complete a record as possible, so you'll need to think about the following fields (* are required):

  • Name of premises *
  • Address *
  • County * (in addition to the address, to help with filtering)
  • Website
  • Email
  • Phone
  • Description (please keep it as factual as possible)

  • Add a Picture (no larger than 300KB)
  • Set the category or categories it belongs to (one or more of Brewery, Brewpub, Pub/Bar or Restaurant)

Once submitted, it will be reviewed for consistancy and will be then be published in the directory.

Veteran beer writer Tim Webb has been publishing a guide to Belgian beer and pubs since 1992. This and the previous edition in 2014 were co-edited by the Europe-based American writer Joe Stange.
