There's a reason why second-screening is so popular - there's nothing better than enjoying your favourite TV show alongside a community of equally-obsessed viewers.

If you haven't tweeted about it, have you even seen it?

However, rather than spending this evening thumbing through your Twitter feed for the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere tonight, why not watch it alongside other fans IRL at one of these pubs?

They're screening the episode at 9pm with pints and food and games before and after.

The Back Page in Phibsboro is hosting Games of Thrones on Monday nights every week with a screening of the episode, food and drink deals, and games includin the Game of Thrones board game.

You can also win a night of free food and drinks for you and a mate every week on their Facebook page.  For more info or to book a table check out their website HERE.


Buskers on the Ball on Fleet Street in Dublin's city centre will also host a screening on the big screen.  There are also €5 pints and bottles on offer and when you buy a bucket of chicken wings for €11.95 you get a second one free.

What's not to love?

Union Cafe in Mount Merrion also have a big screen on the terrace and a chicken wing offer.  Their Game of Bones wings are €5.  And they have an Ice and Fire cocktail for €9.

Nearby Foleys, on Merrion Row, are also hosting a screening party upstairs but space is limited and it's booked out for the premiere.  There are, however, spaces left for subsequent weeks.  Just give them a shout via

Finally, it's not a pub, but for those in the know, there's a secret weekly Game of Thrones cinema club for superfans at a secret location with food and booze (you can even bring your own).

The GOT - S7 Weekly Monday Cinema Group is a private Facebook group for the "weekly get together of like minded souls to view the latest Game of Thrones episodes on a cinema sized screen with a huge P.A. system."

In order to join you must be invited by a member.  And you don't find out the exact location (in Dublin 1) until the day itself.

"All we ask is that you keep the location off social media and your mouth shut whilst the episode is aired," say the organisers.

Fair enough!
