While The Duke and Coachman promises a good time all year round, it is especially atmospheric during sporting events. The venue has the BIGGEST SCREEN IN MAYNOOTH located in the beer garden that promises not to let you miss any of the action! Temperatures are supposed to soar to 20 degrees on Saturday, so The Duke and Coachman is the perfect place for a couple of cold ones to watch the final! There are HD screens throughout the pub so if there is such a thing as too hot in Ireland you can beat the masses to bar and watch the match inside.There’s nothing better than a good Saturday session so get down early and grab yourselves front row seats.
