J.R. Mahon’s: Parties, Events, Live Music & Great Food

Having opened it’s doors in April 2023, J.R. Mahon’s Pub & Brewery on Burgh Quay is one of Dublin’s newest and possibly one of Ireland’s largest pubs. This historic and iconic pub is spread over four floors with weekly live music, fantastic food, craft beer, cocktails and a lively atmosphere, making it the perfect spot for after work drinks, lunches & dinners or your next event, party or celebration.


Centrally located beside O’Connell Bridge, Dublin 2, in the heart of Dublin City and in the former premises of J.W. Sweetman’s and Messr Maguire’s, the venue has been extensively and lovingly reimagined whilst still retaining the charming character of the building itself and honouring the rich history of Dublin city.

With four unique floors to choose from as well as being part of the Mahon Group (who also own the well known Kennedy’s Bar on Westland Row) J.R Mahon’s offers an unrivalled hospitality experience and something to enjoy for all patrons who enter its doors.

We’d highly recommend the Hot & Spicy Chicken Wings and Rib Eye Steak with Jameson whiskey pepper sauce! Mahon’s also proudly and expertly brew their own signature craft beers available exclusively at the pub only. The cocktail menu is something to behold also taking inspiration from New York style cocktails and adding their own Irish twist.


JR Mahon’s sets itself apart from other pubs with their dedicated brewing program. Using locally sourced ingredients their skilled brewers meticulously craft a range of flavourful and distinctive beers, which help to capture the essence of Dublin. These beers are exclusively only available at the venue so be sure to try them out!

With huge screens dotted around the venue, offering uninterrupted views and plenty of seating on every floor J.R. Mahon’s is hugely popular with sports enthusiasts during the biggest sporting occasions. The owners are huge fans of rugby so this is no doubt the pub to enjoy and celebrate those match days in.
