A good few hotels let you rent function rooms with bars, Jurys ballsbridge for example. I'm not sure how much they charge, but they provide catering, bar staff etc. for the night.

I'm almost sure a few bars/pubs let you rent rooms free provided you can fill it, but can't think of any in particular off hand.

Was in john m keatings over the weekend, they have a basement place with a bar, food. Very nice but i'd say it cost a bomb. Very nice though!

Capitol Bar just up from Georges St is nice, I had my 21st there and I reserved tables for free and got food at a reasonable price. Best of all its a cocktail bar and there's good promotions on.

Try Excise Bar in IFSC - Excellent venue. Have been to a couple of parties there. Great atmosphere. I think Alan is the functions manger.
Well worth a try.

Gingerman down by the end of Trinity has a function room on the first floor and provide free food if you get enough people, I think. 100 would be a poifect size. Has a bar too.

If not there, I went to many an 18th in the Russell Court Hotel on Harcourt Street & Doyle's on college street.

The Merrion Inn opposite St.Vincent's Hospital has a really nice free function room upstairs. Might be worth a look.

25th is a Saturday, you will find it very very hard to get a venue to let you in free or cheaply on a Saturday as the its normally the most busy night. If it was midweek you could have probally gotten a room tossed in for free if there was a 100 plus peps.

Ill ask around in the morning and update ya.

you could try the westmoreland on, strangely enough, westmoreland street, they've got a function room which could cater for a not too large group. you'll be pushing your luck getting somewhere at this stage though, especialy given the close proximity to christmas, cos of christmas parties, etc...
