The George is not just any bar or any gay bar. It is the first port of call for young gay people in Ireland, it is the venue where gay and straight people mix together and where international visitors stop to check out the gay scene in Ireland. The George has been the lynchpin that holds Dublin's gay scene together. Having been around for 30 years it has been a home to the development of the social evolution of gay Ireland. "A mix of styles with a sprinkling of fairy dust thrown in", The George features two bar areas; the front bar affectionately known as ‘Bridies' after one of the bar's longest serving staff members; with its low lighting and leather clad barstools is the perfect spot for a quiet drink and a chat. The main club venue has been graced by the presence of some of the hottest international acts including Alexandra Burke, Daniel Johnson, The Saturdays and Bananarama. It is also where you can see some of the best weekly performances in the city Space'N'Veda, Davina's House-Party and featuring International Cabaret Artiste Extraordinaire TM and former child-star Shirley Temple Bar at Sunday night Bingo!

It's a little intimidating walking into a place like this on your own: it's quite loud, the space between the bar and the tables is quite narrow and lined with people trying to buy drinks and most people are there with other friends. That said,...More

This place is amazing. We were there on Saturday (Saturgays karaoke night). Singers were mostly terrible but moderators were super funny. After Karaoke there were disco. You can get drink quickly even though place was packed. We felt very welcomed there as a straight couple...More

Looking at the front you would guess this to be a small back street gay bar in the city but step inside and rooms just seem to appear. A large smoking area at the back and space on many different floors, its a welcoming place...More

I'm definitely going back. The George felt comfortable and got crowded around eleven pm. I loved the drag show!

Best fun had at the George, Everyone friendly. Came with a group of girls for a laugh and that is just what we got. Can't wait to come back again when visiting Dublin.
