About Homeboy Bar

At Homeboy we are all about Modern Irish Hospitality, that’s the warm welcome you would expect from any great Irish bar in the world paired with the skill and knowledge that has seen us be nominated as one of the best cocktail bars in the world. Home comforts and delicious drinks to a soundtrack of hip-hop and RnB. Modern Irish Hospitality without the twee.

We want to see Modern Irish Hospitality recognised as a style of service that sees its focus less on servitude and more on personality and pride in looking after people. Hospitality is at the heart of Irish culture. Hundreds of years ago there were a set of civil laws which governed everyday life in Ireland. Hospitality was a big part of this. If someone sought hospitality they had to be meant offered 4 key actions, a warm meal, drink, entertainment and a warm bed, the only payment the home could take for this were stories of the guest’s journey. We want to live up to that great culture embedded in the Irish psyche. And that doesn’t mean our staff have to be Irish to do this as it is about giving our staff the tools to deliver great hospitality and showcase their personality.
