About Us

The Snailbox is a family run pub, restaurant and venue located on Dublin's doorstep, Co. Meath. The Snailbox has been approved in 2011 under Ireland’s first National Pub Accreditation scheme aimed at ensuring quality Irish pubs are recognised and promoted both at home and abroad (in conjunction with Failte Ireland). With about 260,000 visitors a year, we are one of the most popular Traditional Pub and Restaurants in the area.  It is owned and run by the Foster Family and their friendly and efficient staff.

We pride ourselves on serving the freshest quality food and drinks in our warm and welcoming atmosphere where you can experience the "unique relax factor" only at The Snailbox.

Our cosy Traditional Pub is the spot to meet with friends over a tasty pint of the black stuff, to watch the rugby or football at the weekend or to bring along a musical instrument and join in with our resident Traditional Band who play here every Friday and Saturday.  The Snailbox Pub caters for everyone!

Our restaurant is open all year round and has a range of various tasty menus to choose from.

Breakfast Menu: Mon-Sun 10am-12pm

Lunch Menu: Mon-Sat 12pm-4pm

A la Carte Menu: Mon-Sat 4pm-10pm/Sun & Bank Holidays 1pm-9pm

You can be sure you'll be well fed and watered!

The Snailbo is also a popular venue for parties and functions.  Our events team, Caroline and Shauna, are here every step from your initial enquiry to the final farewell so you can have a stress free & fun time at your party.  We organise everything from Irish Traditional Nights, Weddings, Birthdays and Charity Events - max numbers are 140 people.

We also have our ever expanding Baseball Hat Collection - just donate any old (or new) caps and get a Snailbox cap in return - we have 900 now but need to keep adding!

The Snailbox Courtesy Bus is available for our guests to use.  We pick up locally and drop home and can also pick up groups of 10 or more from Dublin areas and drop home so you can enjoy yourself at our venue and not worry about driving!

The Snailbox is a Venue that is more than a Traditional Pub or Restaurant or Venue.  It is a destination where friends and families can get together adn have a memorable and unique time....time and time again!

"Love it, It's fab"

This place is just the best. Great food, great entertainment, great staff and good drink. The staff are so nice and make you feel so welcome and nothing is a problem. It's hard work not just to get things right but keeping them right and the owner has done this, well done. I will be back.
