Party Earth Dubliners Review

The Scene

Dubliners in Madrid's El Centro is a rowdy Irish pub with great drink specials & a largely English-speaking crowd. Get tossed in Madrid with Party Earth.

The area around Puerta del Sol definitely isn’t short on Irish bars, and that fact is probably most evident at Dubliners, which happens to have a twin brother named O’Connell St. – run by the same owner – located right next door.

Thanks to its location on a heavily touristed stretch of Calle Espoz y Mina, patrons will find a wealth of English speakers drinking inside, from rowdy Irish expats to sports-loving backpackers to lots of young Madrileños practicing their ingles over pints of Guinness.

The cozy single-room joint goes with a standard décor familiar to any frequenter of Irish pubs, its dark wood and cream-colored walls dotted with portraits of the homeland, beer logos, and Gaelic crests, but most folks are probably more interested in regular specials like the €12 beer buckets, teeth-dissolving sangria pitchers, and hearty grub to help coat the stomach for another round.

Guests can expect a packed house if a big soccer or rugby match is on the large projection screen – which also tunes in American football and basketball games – and a raucous crowd of twentysomethings most nights that regularly turn the open space between scattered tables into an improvised dance floor.

Definitely not a place for romantic escapades or finely crafted drinks, but for anyone in the mood for a touristy hangout that still manages to be friendly to their wallet, it’s hard to beat Dubliners.

Tip from Lucas:

Be sure and check out Dubliners on Thursdays when they offer 2-for-1 drink specials!

  • Crowd

    College kids, Irish expats, wayward backpackers, rowdy bar-hoppers, sports fans, unpretentious locals looking to party, 20s to mid-30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Mostly current pop hits on the soundtrack. Occasional live bands. Projection screen usually tuned to soccer, rugby, American football, and basketball.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Typical pub food including burgers, fries, nachos, and wings.

  • Prices

    Menu €4–€8. Beer and large cocktails €2–€7. Discount tickets offering various drink specials are often available right outside the door.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    The beauty of Irish bars is that they cater to visitors rather than locals, which means there’s a lot of traffic just about any night, with the biggest crowds Thursdays through Saturdays.

The Watering Hole
Ruben D R. Jun 30, 2013
Okay... it's an "Irish" pub, meaning that you'll see a mix of tourists and exchange students from all over Europe, at least throughout the academic year. Simply put, Dubliners - on a good night - can become the whole European gamut. You'd go here to get away from the authentic Spanish scene to speak a universal language and indulge in heavy drinking. The place is best reserved as your go to meet-up place or as your essential pre-game spot for the night. It warms anyone up for a late night of dancing especially if you manage to grab some promotional cards out in the street. It's conveniently located on an offshoot from Sol, the central location for any late night gathering. There may not be anything unique about Dubliners - in fact, it has a similar, if not exact, layout of the bar O'Connell's next to it - but it is a lively social scene. If you're in Madrid looking for a vintage, late night Spanish experience this would not be the bar to go to. However, if you're part of a bigger group of friends looking for something to start off the night and then figure plans - Dubliners is the place.
Just a Pub

I went on a Friday night with a couple of Friends. They charged us at the door 4 euros. This is a bit silly because it's just a pub. It's not like people were dancing. It doesn't have anything special and the beer is not that good. Not for a night of dancing. However it's good if you want to go watch sports or use the WIFI.

Dubliners Irish Pub is the go to location for sporting events, to get some drinks, and enjoy some irish food while your at it! Located in the heart of Madrid, Sol, the Pub is home to college kids, abroad students, and anyone who enjoys a nice Guinness. What makes this pub different then all the others in Madrid? The great discounts, large crowds, and modern music are a good start. After a few visits you will be begging for the promoter of the pub to walk you there for discounts. Heres a tip, she or he will always be at the corner of Calle de Espoz y Mina and Carrera de San Jerónimo. The Pub offers a variety of beers and shots to please the college student and discounted Jaeger Bombs and a free shot with every pint are only a few ways Dubliners rakes people in. Baskets of chips outline the pub for the snackers while theres plenty of room to move around. Two bars, one in the front and one in the back, make it always easy to grab a beer and large TVs including one movie screen projector will be playing all the sports games on that day including American Football. Dubliners is the place to have a good time with foreigners and Spaniards, young and old all with the common goal to drink some beer and enjoy.
