Dublin City Centre pub Lanigan’s won’t reopen

By Emily Mullen

“We have fought a long and hard battle for the past year in trying to keep the doors open”

Lanigan’s Pub in Dublin’s city center announced its closure after 36 years in operation. The pub has been operating from the downstairs of The Clifton Court Hotel, on Dublin 1’s Eden Quay.

Announcing the “end of an era” a spokesperson for the pub wrote, “we have fought a long and hard battle for the past year in trying to keep the doors open, but due to the ongoing circumstances, it is just not feasible to keep going.”

“Myself, Maria and all the staff will always be forever grateful for the friendship, loyalty, and support we have received over the past 36 years.”

“There are just too many names to mention with fantastic staff, musicians, and customers, but it is down to YOU as the reason we were voted best pub in Dublin, and best pub in Ireland. We were unlike anywhere else, and that’s why it was such a great success.”

“So thank you from the bottom of our hearts, this is not goodbye, just see you all soon. As my good friend would say, ‘Onwards'” the post reads.
