Free pints for anyone called Neil (or Neal or Neill) at this Manchester bar


Calling all Neils, Neals and O’Neills! Fancy a free pint?

To celebrate their 25th birthday this year, O’Neills Irish bar inside The Printworks are offering a free beer to anybody with the name Neil.

Whether it’s your first name, middle name or surname, you could be in for a chance of a free pint of Guinness next week. Celebrating in true Irish style, of course.

Danielle McKeefrey, general manager at O’Neill’s Printworks, said: “Myself and the whole team are really excited to celebrate 25 fantastic years of O’Neill’s with the people of Manchester.”

“We couldn’t think of a better way to mark the occasion than to share our special day with fellow Neils,” said Danielle.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming our wonderful guests to join with us in raising a glass and joining in the craic for this huge birthday celebration!”

All you need to do is show your ID at the bar, with proof of your Neil-ness, and the pint is yours – if you make it down in time that is.

For the offer runs from the 22nd to the 26th of April, however, O’Neills only have 25 pints available, so make sure to grab yours before they all get snapped up.

The offer is valid for over 18s only, and all variations of the name are accepted, including Neil, Neill, Neal, Neale or O’Neill.

And if you’re not a Neil? Well, the bar says there will still be lots going on to celebrate the 25th milestone, so you’re assured of some good craic whatever your name!
