Pay day seems far away, but you can still live in the manner you’re accustomed to.

IT’S THE WRONG side of pay day, but you’re not ready to give up just yet.

Grab a couple of friends, pool your remaining Euros and hit up one of these spots for some vino.

1. McGrattan’s, Fitzwilliam Lane

McGrattan’s are notorious for their €10 bottles of wine. Mind yourselves.

The Pav is the place to be of a fine summer’s eve – and they serve bottles of wine for a mere €14.30. Praise be to students!

What would a list of cheap pubs be without our new Wetherspoon’s? The Three Tun Tavern has bottles from €15.25. That’ll do nicely.
