The original village of Clontarf consisted of one street leading to Clontarf Castle with a number of dwellings scattered around it known as The Sheds fishing village. Much of the area’s social history is preserved by the longevity of this very pub. First licensed in 1845, the Connolly family have been here since 1927. This old oasis is one of Dublin’s most charming and convivial venues.



With such a convenient location, unique history and charming atmosphere, The Sheds is an ideal venue to host a special occasion. We can cater for every need so if you are looking to plan a memorable evening get in touch with us and we will be delighted to help with Birthday parties, Christenings, Corporate events, Fashion shows, Product launches, Theme nights, Photo shoots, Private Celebrations…
