Note: This article reflects the views of the New Zealand Herald and not necessarily those of Irish Pubs Global.

1. Dogs Bollix
2 Newton Rd, Newton. Ph (09) 376 4600.

An easy pub to get to following dinner on Ponsonby Rd, Dogs Bollix often has great live music, too.

2. O’Hagan’s
101-103 Customs St West, Auckland CBD. Ph (09) 363 2106.

Enjoy the atmosphere of Auckland’s waterfront from the outside seating area – and try some homemade Irish cuisine while you’re at it.

3. The Clare Inn
274-8 Dominion Rd, Mt Eden. Ph (09) 623 8233.

Loved by many for its authenticity and great food, this roomy pub is also just five minutes from Eden Park. (So, pre-match drinks, post-match drinks, or both.)

4. O’Carroll’s Freehouse
10 Vulcan Lane, Auckland CBD. Ph (09) 300 7117.

Specialising in craft beer, O’Carrolls offers a selection of bites to eat and a popular happy hour on Thursdays and Saturdays, 5-7pm.

5. Horse & Trap Tavern
3 Enfield St, Mt Eden. Ph (09) 630 3055

The friendly Horse & Trap is offering “Pint & Pizza” or “Pinot & Pizza” for just $15 – and kids eat for free on Saturdays. Check out their popular Tuesday quiz night, too. 2
