Beer Garden Design

The demand for outdoor areas and Beer Gardens has greatly increased as a result of Covid. Outdoor dining is seen by many as a safer option and with current plans for Northern Irish pubs, restaurants and hotels to reopen after Easter 2021, interest in outdoor spaces is booming.

It’s important to get the right beer garden design for your space, every area is different. Beer gardens/smoking areas/roof terraces are a huge selling point but there are important factors to consider. Customers at Irish Beer Gardens now expect a level of comfort so its important to get the right layout that offers the best mix of shelter, heat, comfort and entertainment and is compliant with Tobacco Control and Fire and Disability regulations.

PJ O Hare’s Bar is the most popular bar in Carlingford and has a fantastic beer garden that is busy throughout the year. The cottage style of the adjoining buildings, fantastic hanging flower baskets, bench tables, famous live music and retractable roof all make for a great experience. Similar past projects include Clarkes Bar Drogheda, Odd Mollies Drogheda, Lynches Tullamore and the recently opened Square Bar, Portlaoise.

Irish Pubs abroad usually require a different type of beer garden design. These beer gardens are often at the front of a premises and if done correctly will entice people in. In very hot climates it is important to have sufficient shade. We designed and built “The Brewery” in Vilamoura Portugal that has a very impressive beer garden and large water wheel feature. The Irish Pub concept is always a popular choice throughout Europe and further afield. The use of painted signage, salvaged style timbers and the right mix of furniture, finishes and colours led to another successful beer garden design.
