Guinness To Celebrate Pubs Across Ireland

Guinness has announced its next Guinness Live & Rising event, which will take place on Saturday 23 September in The Church, Dublin, hosted by The Corona’s frontman Danny O’Reilly.

The event was created to celebrate Irish pubs across the country, showcasing the role they play in music, food, sport and the arts.

Live Performances

Guinness will partner with Danny O'Reilly to curate the 'ultimate match day watch party,' bringing together rugby fans with some familiar faces from the world of sport and music, including Hermitage Green’s Barry Murphy and presenter Christina Mahon along with special guests.

It will include live performances, rugby chats and a few 'surprises' along the way.

Pop-Up Pub Events

Guinness Live & Rising was launched in May by Dermot Kennedy who performed in the Guinness Storehouse, followed by three special pop-up pub performances by Dermot in The Long Hall, Devitt’s and Toner’s where he was joined by Aimee, Somebody’s Child and Niamh Bury.


The series will showcase further collaborations with new and established talent from the worlds of music, food, sport, and the arts over the next 12 months in pop-up pub events.

'Amazing Line Up'

"Irish pubs are known for showcasing emerging talent in culture and have played a big part in kickstarting my music career," said Danny O’Reilly.

"The pub is also a place where I love to get together with friends and family to watch my favourite team play or discover new music."

"We’ve an amazing line up on the night and I’m excited to bring you all along for my ultimate match day watch party.”
