“Its Out Of Our Hands”, The Bernard Shaw To Close Next Month
The Bernard Shaw, one of Dublin City’s well-known pubs, is set to close down, along with the Eatyard, this October.
According to a post made on Facebook, the owners said that the closure is out of their hands.
End Of An Era
The owners said that they tried over the last few months to renew the lease, stay on longer, or buy the place.
“A lot of things didn't go our way over the last 12 months either, but it's out of our hands now, unfortunately,” the post read.
“We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who was part of this 13-year adventure.”
“Our landlord, our neighbours and the council were, by and large, all brilliant and very helpful and supportive. The artists, makers, designers, bands, DJs, promoters, hustlers and lunatics who did their thing at the Shaw - we couldn't have done it without you.”
“We have had amazing, loyal customers, many who came, and left, and came back again over those 13 years as life got in the way while we were busy making plans and being busy fools.”
The pub operators confirmed that it will “start something else, somewhere else”, adding that plans are already afoot.
