Rody Bolands

Rody Bolands is a personal favourite of mine as it’s between home and Dublin city centre, nestled in bustling Rathmines. During Christmas they really up the festive feel with decorations and lighting.

As it can accommodate many parties at once and is open late you are guaranteed a cracking night for everyone involved. There’s a Christmas dining menu available for €29.95 (2 course) or €33.95 (3  course). If you only require a reserved area (min. 10 guests) there are two options available which include complimentary prosecco on arrival and finger food platters available at €9.95 per person or €17.95 per person (includes 2 drink vouchers per person). Finally if you wish to reserve the fully private function room upstairs for up to 100 people it is available with prosecco / mulled wine, finger food platter, sandwich canapes and 3 drink vouchers pp at only €39.95pp (min. 48 guests).
