Dublin’s Coolest New Bar Menu

Build Your Own Board

Build your own plate with the brand new menu at the Sideline Bar in The Croke Park, perfect for pre-match food.

There’s nothing like some great bar food when you’re after a meal that’s a little more casual. But sometimes menus can get a little repetitive… and they don’t have quite what you’re looking for. The dish that you want comes with the side that you don’t, or those sweet potato fries you’re craving can’t be found anywhere. 

Well, instead of making substitutions to dishes or going off menu, opt the new offerings at The Sideline Bar in The Croke Park, where you’ll get exactly what you’re after every time.

Why? Well, with the new ‘Build Your Own Board’ menu, you get to decide exactly what ends up on your plate. You choose a main and a side from a broad range of different items. Say you’re in the mood for a salad, but want something a little devilish too… you can choose from the variety of light salads on offer, and add some skinny fries to the board. Or maybe you want something a bit heartier, but without chips… how about the spiced lamb rump, with Caesar salad on the side.

There are three choices of Mains – salads, grill and gourmet sandwiches. Choose from one of the following…


Classic Caesar €8 / €12
Pancetta & croutons

Niçoise €8 / €12
Egg, olives, green beans & tomato

Sprouting Broccoli €8 / €12
Lentil, feta & pomegranate

Spiced Bulgar €8 / €12
Chickpea, squash & yoghurt dressing

ADD Cajun spiced chicken €4

Apple & avocado
