About This Venue

The Bridge 1859 is located in the heart of Ballsbridge, Dublin 4. Only a stone's throw from the Aviva Stadium and RDS it is a famously well regarded spot with rugby fans for an unbeatable pre and post match-day atmosphere.


It's also one of only two bars in Ireland (our sister bar, Lemon & Duke is the second bar in Ireland) with Pilsner Urquell's revolutionary tank beer system, allowing us to serve fresh unpasteurised beer straight to the customer.
