The Licensed Vintners Association (LVA) is the trade association and representative body for the publicans of Dublin. Established in 1817, the LVA is over 200 years old, making it oldest trade association in Ireland.

The LVA is a membership-based organisation and is funded by membership subscriptions.

With approximately 600 members, including some of the most successful and visionary publicans in the country, collectively the LVA represent over 75% of all pubs in Dublin and Bray. LVA members collectively sell more than a quarter of all the alcohol sold through the licensed trade in Ireland and play a pivotal role in the business, social and cultural life of our capital city.
