Owning a pub has become an even more challenging task in recent years. A Drink Industry Group of Ireland Report recently stated 108 pubs shut in 2022 and over 2,000 pubs in Ireland have closed since 2005. Covid-19, the cost-of-living crisis and the increase on the price of drink by suppliers has added an extra burden on pub owners.  


With all this upheaval, it’s more important than ever to be prepared for the unexpected and to be able to get things back on track as quickly as possible so that you don’t let down or lose your customers. 

Arachas, as Ireland’s largest nationwide insurance broker, provide market leading insurance cover for your business, backed by support from expert teams who understand your business.

With the nature of a pub, accidents can be common such as someone falling on a wet floor or cutting themselves on broken glass. These events can easily happen, which means it’s vital to have Public Liability insurance to protect your business against any claims that may arise.


2. Employer's Liability

Your bar staff are the face of your company; a welcoming team are a reason for customers to visit time and time again. It is essential to protect them and to cover your business against any accident or injury that may occur.
