Just off Oxford Road lies The Lass O'Gowrie, a typical boozer with a charming and cosy vibe. Looking for places to watch the rugby? Hunker down by one of their six screens dotted around the pub, with plenty of refreshments to keep you going, in the form of real ale and classic pub food.

A great 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 fare while taking in all of the sporting action on their multiple screens.
