BYO Venues

Was in Keshk cafe recently. Nice enough spot but the real bonus was the fact that you could bring your own wine in, without corkage

Does anyone else know other restaurents where you can bring your own wine? with or without corkage?

The desperately classy Monto on Sundrive Road has a free BYO policy. It's the only place I've seen people drinking blue WKD with their meal.

Rotten looking stuff, looks like you should be cleaning the plates with it.

I am surprised this has not been exploited more, the difference in offy & pub prices has grown dramatically. It can be up to 10 times dearer for bottles in pubs than offied e.g. I have got heineken for 63cent and hear of bottles for over €6 in the rip-off forum.


I know my sister & her mates used to go to some veggie place in bray I think, 2 of them would split a 2L of coke & bottle of smirnoff. Tesco price €20+€2=€22.

In my local, 2L of coke would be €28, and a bottle of vodka (~20 shots) would be €77, so would be €105. So that is a overall saving of €83 or €41.50 each.
As there is no drink bought with the meal they are probably not even spending €41.50, have guaranteed seats and no blaring music etc.

I have also heard of Chez Max in town doing a BYO thing.

Just wondering if any of the nicer restaurents are doing it?

There is a sign on the door of the Indian restaurant in Donnybrook advertising BYOB. Don't know the name of it though.

BYOB Listing

There is a BYOB Listing in Ireland I found recently...

BYOB Irish Restaurant Guide

www.byob.ie

They look quite new but hopefully will have listings shortly.

I sent them the Keshk Cafe which we enjoyed a few weeks ago....

Send on your suggestions to them so we can all enjoy more BYOB Restaurants.....

Wine in Restaurants is just too damn expensive!!!!!

Down with them I say ...

And how about a restaurant that allows you to bring your own beer? That would be pretty good. I wonder do the current byo places allow beer or is it limited to wine?
By beer I don't mean cans of Dutch Gold I mean decent beer that is hard to find even in pubs.

Or even better, my own beer

There is no legal restriction on what alcohol you bring. The sign in the window of Monto on Sundrive Road specifically says you can bring your own "wine or beer", and I've seen plenty of customers interpret this as including blue WKD.

I've never brought beer to it, but I'd be bringing my own glassware if I did. Scabby nonics: no thanks.

Maybe stop pimping your website and drop the transparent satisfied customer act?
