Dublin boasts an array of excellent wine options on its restaurant lists, but these days prices can be a bit steep. And sure you can throw a gaff, but the clean-up can be relentless. So BYOB is the best of all the worlds.

Thank Baccus, there is now a growing number that will allow you to do this. Some restaurants charge a corkage fee, typically about €6 or so for wine or €1 for beer, while others allow you to open and drink your wine for free – and will even provide an ice bucket for white wine/beer.

So, this summer, save your money for your holidays by hitting Aldi and picking up a bottle of Cremant du Jura for just €17.99, or a bottle of rosé for less than a tenner in Dunnes Stores. Or how about going all out with a bottle of 1982 Bordeaux?

Here are 30 restaurants in the capital that will allow you to bring your own.
