History

We’re a local in the true sense of the word. For a long me, Buglers has been a place for locals and those from afar to get together, have a drink and catch up. In 200 years, that’s never changed.

Established in 1798, Buglers Ballyboden House prides ourselves at being the “local” for the residents of Ballyboden, Rathfarnham, Ballyroan and more. We are a family run business, with many family members working here today.

The pub has seen some significant changes in look and personnel over the years from Tom J Bugler taking over from the D’alton Family in 1954, Liam Bugler, Tom’s son and the pubs legendary owner, to Seán Bolger, who carried Bugler’s pub through a global pandemic, and would go on to introduce 3 new outdoor areas,
including “The Meeng Place” café. Seán brought Buglers to the next level and kept loyal local customers at the heart of everything we do, just how Liam Bugler did.

The extended Bugler family have been carrying the pub since Liam passed in 2007 and connue to do so today. Liam’s legacy is proudly carried on and is clear to see in our ethos. Customers are first.
