Conor McGregor has declared that The Black Forge Inn is “the greatest public house on earth” after enjoying a weekend of celebrations at the venue.

The UFC star bought the pub in 2020 for a reported €2 million and spent a further €1 million on renovations ahead of its reopening last July.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the Notorious revealed that he had spent the weekend partying in his Crumlin pub with some pals.

He shared a photo with close friends as they tried out some of McGregor’s Proper No. 12 whiskey and said: “Jimmy boy, Lee Bennett, Gerry Vegas, and The Mac Daddy Head of House but can be barred as well all enjoying the greatest public house on earth”

In another snap, McGregor posed with comedian Enya Martin and captioned the post: “Great to have the absolutely amazing @gizalaugh_ in the house last night @theblackforgeinn! Some woman is our Chanto! Irish comedy genius on the rise! We hope you enjoyed yourself Enya”

The 33-year-old also announced that some christening festivities had taken place in The Black Forge Inn as the crew from The Cut Price Jewellers in Dublin city centre had rented out the venue for the day.

Smiling for a photo opportunity with some of the attendees, McGregor said: “Always the best night when the @thecutpricejewellers crew are in! Diamonds dancing all over the gaf. Congrats Leanora and family on the christening of your baby girl Snow, from all at @theblackforgeinn”

And the chaos continued on Sunday night too, as the MMA star shared a series of videos to his Instagram Stories of the crowd inside the pub.

Dozens of people were shown having a ball as a violinist stood up on a booth and played along to the music.

It comes after McGregor confirmed that he planned to return to the octagon this July.

“July seems okay for me,” he told SevereMMA.com.

“I can’t say too early, but July, if I’m sparring in April, May, June, July — I could slap the head off of most of these guys at the end of April.”
