Success Story Overview

Brannigans Pub & Kitchen

Our Holistic Bar Marketing Strategies

Brannigans Pub & Kitchen is located on Cathedral Street in Dublin, known for its long history and association with Dublin folklore. The pub has undergone various transformations, from its origins as the Post Office Tavern to its current name, inspired by the legendary local Garda James “Lugs” Brannigan. Today, Brannigans continues to uphold its strong tradition, attracting customers from both the local community and tourists visiting Dublin.

How it all started

The owners, Patrick and Paul, approached us during the COVID-19 pandemic in October-November 2020. With their bar relying heavily on word-of-mouth and foot traffic, they wanted to improve their online presence – particularly their outdated website, to attract more customers, especially tourists.

Goals & challenges

Our main objective was to create a new website that accurately represented the bar’s history and offerings. We aimed to enhance their online visibility and rankings, particularly for keywords like “Gastropub in Dublin City Center” and “pub in Dublin City Centre”. With so many Irish Pubs around and so many tourists searching daily for the best one to have a pint and a bite at, the challenge was to overcome the intense competition in the ndustry and appeal to these potential customers through effective SEO strategies for bars.

Enhancing user experience with a new website

We created a contemporary and user-friendly website for Brannigans, highlighting their rich history, enticing menus, and comprehensive services. The revamped website provided an improved user experience, enabling effortless navigation, seamless online ordering, and convenient menu viewing with zooming capabilities. Additionally, we optimised it for mobile devices, ensuring smooth accessibility and an exceptional user experience on screens of all sizes.
