A great Irish pub showing plenty of sports, Mulligans is just a stone's throw from the main Deansgate street and the perfect place to catch up on all the rugby. Relax with a pint of beer and some traditional Irish grub while taking in all the sporting action on their multiple screens.

As its name may suggest, The Director's Box is a bustling Manchester sports bar that shows everything from football and rugby to F1 and boxing. With screens across the venue, you're sure never to miss a moment while gorging on classic grill plates and craft beers.
