'Talk of Dundalk' bar to open at old Sportsbowl


'Talk of Dundalk' bar to open at old Sportsbowl

The former Martha’s Vineyard Bar on the Dundalk Sportsbowl site is to reopen with a brand new look on the Racecourse Road in the next few weeks.

David Bell, Operations Manager for the site which now boasts the number 1 bingo club in the north east, Let’s Bingo, said he was “very excited” and that the newly named “Talk of Dundalk”, will offer customers drinks at extremely reasonable prices, bar snacks, entertainment and even private party bookings.

“We really wanted a bar that would offer customers a different experience at different times of the day and through the week, so we will be offering lunchtime drinks and bar snacks, and later in the evenings from 9pm there will be a full weekly programme of entertainment to make sure the bar lives up to its new name!” he told press.

When asked what kind of entertainment was planned, David went on to say that “we have got some great ideas and want the customers to help shape the programme by getting in touch and making suggestions. But we have things in the pipeline like Karaoke Nights, Quiz Nights, Live Band nights, and “Pub Idol” where local talent can take part in a pub version of the TV show and hopefully make a name for themselves in the area!”

Anyone with ideas or suggestions can email David directly or his Bar Manager Ciara on

“We have a planned opening date for the end of the month.

“Watch out for details in the local press and social media.”
