A well-known and much-loved pub, The Hill in Ranelagh, has announced that it has served it’s final pint in an announcement on Facebook.

The Hill Pub in Ranelagh posted a short but sweet statement to their social media on Wednesday evening, announcing that they would be closing their doors with immediate effect.

“‪Due to circumstances beyond our control the Hill Pub has closed with immediate effect. We would like to thank all of our wonderful customers over the last few years, you have all been amazing,” The Hill wrote.

The Hill had been in Ranelagh for around 100 years, but was taken over by it’s latest owners Derek Marsden and Darragh Nugent in 2016, undergoing a massive refurbishment.

Many lamented the quick closure of the Ranelagh hotspot, best known to many for it’s large ‘The Hill’ illuminated sign on the side of the building.

“Sorry to hear that Derek and team. Any time we were in there we’d great food and a lovely time. Best of luck with your future endeavours,” said Wayne.

Marsden and Nugent are both from the locality, and gave the pub a name as a haven for Craft Beer lovers with a huge selection of both craft and mainstream beers on offer.

Another commenter, Will, wrote: “You made such a great pub out of what was so dodgy before. One of the first proper craft beer pubs in Ireland. A sad day.”

Humphrey’s, another Ranelagh watering hole, also added their condolences to the pub and it’s owners, as well as nearby restaurant Cinnamon.
