Our Favourite…Dublin

At Cogs & Marvel, we make it our business to know Dublin and all it’s event potential. Here’s a breakdown of some of our favourite venues from across the city.



Redesigned in early 2016, Pichet is the fresh-faced front of the Mercantile Group. Terming it “a modern take on the classic bistro,” Pichet has moved away from it’s starched white tablecloths and into a less formal, relaxed setting that can host up to 90 pax across its three spaces.


Croke Park

Be it for a concert, meeting, conference, a gala dinner, or a team building outing, Croke Park has it all. Located on the fourth level, the Hogan Suite offers floor to ceiling windows with panoramic city views, holding banquet capacity for 350 pax, conference seating for 700 pax, and reception space for 750 pax, while it’s art and foyer views reflect all the history that comes with the stadium. For a conference break or energizer like no other, try abseiling off the skyline roof of the stadium onto the pitch 150ft below. To experience Croke Park in all its glory be sure to buy tickets to Social Media Summit, April 11th and 12th!


Cleaver East

In the heart of Temple Bar is Oliver Dunne’s Cleaver East – a modern take on fine cuisine, the restaurant prides itself on its commitment to locally sourced ingredients. The space itself has a cool, vibrant style, making use of different levels which can be taken individually or on exclusive hire.


Smock Alley

An oldie but a goodie, Smock Alley reflects the best of old-world Dublin. Both the Main Space and the Boy’s School offer state of the art sound and lighting for conferencing while the Banquet Hall is filled with natural light from its large stained glass windows looking out onto the river.



One of our favourite 2016 venues is Zozimus: named from the Dublin poet, the cocktail menu takes its inspiration from the Irish literary heroes of old in an artistic, stylised setting. For private hire the space can take from 200-300pax dependant on the event style, available to take exclusively Monday-Thursday evenings.
