Gibney’s London & Daffodil Mulligan


Located in Shoreditch, a minute's walk from Old Street, Daffodil Mulligan is the bar that 3 legends of hospitality have come together to launch.

With over a century of hospitality experience between them, Richard Corrigan (Corrigan’s Mayfair, Bentley’s), John Nugent (Kings Place Events, Sea Containers) and Tony Gibney (Gibney's of Malahide Dublin) share the same ethos of traditional Irish hospitality, where customers become friends. Mixing the spirit of an Irish pub, the dining experience of a top restaurant and the welcome you’d expect from your local, but in five-star surroundings, Daffodil Mulligan's bar is a local melting pot for all – whether it’s dining, watching live music and sports, or throwing a party to remember.

The bar can also host private dining events for 50, receptions for up to 150 or anything in between. Whatever your reason for visiting Daffodil Mulligan, be sure to know that the team will make you and your guests feel at home while providing the same exceptional food, drink and friendly service you would expect from the Irish.
