The Dirty Onion has become dog friendly this year and we have made a real effort into making the pub a very welcoming environment for dogs and dog owners. We have one of the biggest beer gardens in Belfast, have our own homemade branded dog biscuits, dog bowls, dog bandanas and a ‘Doggy dock’ to keep your dog tied up safe. We also have our own light hearted ‘Doggy Rules’ to keep everyone well informed of our dog friendly approach and offerings!
The response has been amazing to our support for dogs, so much so, that we decided to make our chosen charity this year ‘Lucy’s Trust’, a local dog sanctuary for unwanted dogs. We have been taking donations and held dog friendly events to promote the charity and have raised over £1500 so far this Summer. The last event, called the ‘Pooch Social’ attracted over 200 dogs to the pub and was a massive success.
We really care and love dogs and our staff are trained to provide for them when they visit us. This in turn has produced all sorts of regulars of many breeds and welcomed like-minded dog owners to meet up and enjoy a pint together. We would love to get some recognition for our efforts and promote our dog friendly approach to a new audience
