Bulmer's Light Dublin Price List

I'm quite a fan of Bulmer's Light - especially in the long neck (33cl) version. It's not the cheapest drink, but the smaller serving size also means less alcohol when out for a night. I'm not that young anymore after all.

I was interested in seeing the variation of prices around Dublin, so I recorded prices over the last few weeks as I was out and about. Here are the surprising results, from cheapest to most expensive.

11. The 108, 108 Rathgar Road, Rathgar, Dublin 6 - €5.00
Leeson Lounge, 148 Leeson Street Upper, Dublin 4 - €5.00
The Oval, 78 Middle Abbey Street, Dublin 1 - €5.00

8. T.P. Smyths, 9-10 Jervis Street, Dublin 1 - €5.30
Messrs Maguires, Burgh Quay, Dublin 2 - €5.30
Andrews Lane Theatre, Andrews Lane, Dublin 2 - €5.30

5. Peter's Pub, 1 Johnson's Place, Dublin 2 - €5.40
Dakota, 9 South William Street, Dublin 2 - €5.40

3. The Academy, 57 Middle Abbey Street, Dublin 1 - €5.50
Ron Black's, 37 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 - €5.50

1. McNeills, 140 Capel Street, Dublin 7 - €5.80

A surprising result there from McNeill's on Capel Street. A place that you would have thought would charge local prices. Maybe it was a mistake on their part, but that was the price on the receipt that night.

I wonder if the price reductions introduced by C&C for Bulmers will affect the pricing of Bulmer Light. Last Friday night, I paid €4.90 for a longnect bottle of Bulmers Pear in the Gin Palace on Middle Abbey Street, so things do seem to be getting cheaper.
