The revolutionary 'Student Discount Days'

Sure there are plenty of bars looking to get the students in with the appeal of cheap beer. The only problem is that, while the domestic products are alright, nothing is done with any of the great imported beer coming in.

O’C‘s is here to change all that by giving generous discounts on all of our tap selection. With a minus 2€ discount per pint you can have your choice of the best beers from around the world. Bring along your valid student ID on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays!

Real ale for just €6.00?

Yes, it’s true! Traditionally, all beer was poured straight from the barrel or pumped from the cellar without nitrogen or carbon dioxide pushing it out the pipe.

Beer was also brewed with natural ingredients so artificial additives (stabilizers, flavourizers and colourizers) played no part – the way it is supposed to be.

That craft of real brewing is back and you can sample a pint or nine every Sunday for the super low price of €6.00 per pint.

It’s also a Student Discount Day!


From: 16.00 Until: 00.30
