Social Darts Launches In Dublin’s Giddy Dolphin Venue

The Giddy Dolphin, the latest venue from the Press Up Hospitality Group, has announced the launch of a tech-driven competitive socialising experience in partnership with the Social Gaming Group.


Flyby Darts is an interactive tech concept that uses high-frequency cameras to track the flight of darts and calculate players’ scores automatically.

The Giddy Dolphin, located in Temple Bar, in the Dollard Printworks building, has recently undergone a complete transformation. The Giddy Dolphin aims to bring people together to enjoy live music and sports, drinks, food from Wowburger and Dollard Pizza, and now the newest social experience: competitive Flyby Darts.

Flyby Darts at the Giddy Dolphin is now live and available to book from 12pm daily, at


Customers can book a 30-, 60- or 90-minute slot through the website. Flyby Darts works for groups of up to 12, but Press Up believes that five to six people is the optimum number, to get the most game time. There are six game options from which to choose, from Classic 501 to Killer, in which participants tactically eliminate opponents one shot at a time, or High Striker, which is all about outscoring the previous player to keep your lives. Customers can try as many games as they like during their timeslot.

Statement By The Social Gaming Group’s UK Country Manager

Speaking about the launch of Flyby Darts in Ireland, Ben Minter, the Social Gaming Group’s UK country manager, said, “We’re proud to be partnering with Press Up Hospitality Group to introduce the world’s best gaming technology to their guests at the Giddy Dolphin. As a business, we’re bringing more than a decade’s experience of providing tailored, premium social-gaming solutions for the world’s leading on-trade operators.
