Rising fuel costs have prompted the owners of a well-known public house in Phibsborough to offer a discount to customers who keep their coats on.
Located on the Phibsborough Road, Doyle’s Corner, a famous old northside hostelry is asking customers to come ‘chill‘ with them every Tuesday in October.
Formerly John Doyle’s, the house is mentioned in Ulysses under the name of Dunphy’s, where the funeral cortege pass en-route to Paddy Dignam’s send off nearby.
They say they’ve opted to turn the heating down slightly due to the price of fuel. Customers are being asked to bring their coat and in turn, get 20% off the food bill!
The pub is running its ‘chillcount‘ promo for the month of October.
Ronan Flood, co-owner of Doyle’s Corner in Phibsborough, is asking people to come wearing their coats in exchange for cheaper meals;
“Doyle’s Corner is a big old listed building and it’s really difficult to heat.
“We’re inviting our guests to ‘chill‘ every Tuesday as we turn the heat down a little.”
“We might even offer a 30 per cent discount if you bring your hot water bottle.”
He expects they’ll be paying €100,000 more in energy costs for the bar and a sister pub in Smithfield by the end of the year.
The Phibsborough watering hole has already seen a significant surge in bookings ahead of the offer kicking off on Saturday.
So now there is a chill in the air with a bag of coal gone from €16 a bag to €33 we thought now might be a good time to launch our new Tuesday promo
Bring yer coat and get 20% off your food bill.
