You can now get a life-size inflatable pub for your back garden

If you just can’t wait any longer for pubs to reopen their doors, then this might be the perfect solution!

With pubs across Ireland still closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, most of us have had to make do with homemade drinks and takeaway pints over recent months.

If you can’t hold out any longer, then an inflatable pub might be exactly what you need, and thanks to Irish inflatables company Toons and Balloons you can now get your hands on one for your own back garden.

The pub comes complete with bar tables, chairs, and lighting, so all you need to do is provide the drinks.

The inflatable building is 6m tall and 8x7m wide, meaning it can hold 50 people standing or 35 seated, however, it does also come in a more compact version to suit smaller spaces.

However, for now, the bouncy castle hiring service will be strictly operating on a no-contact basis and is intended to be used by members of your own household only.

The pub can be delivered to 32 counties across Ireland and could be the perfect covid-friendly way to indulge in a night out this summer from the comfort of your own home. You can contact the company here to make a booking.

Delivery will be direct to your garden through a side entrance with no other person in the garden other than staff from the company.

Access to a power socket is required outside, in an outhouse or garage, or an extension lead left out, meanwhile, the company will also sanitise the unit on both delivery and collection.

Their website reads: “It will be your responsibility to comply with HSE guidelines and ensure appropriate social distancing is applied and that the unit is only used by members of your household. Please ensure regular hand washing to protect your family and our staff.

“We will advise a time in advance of collection and you should ensure that there are no children or adults on the castle when our staff arrives.”
