Damien says...

"For the "traditional" irish pub experience do a tour and include a few of these...

The Stag's Head, Dame Court, Dublin 2. The Long Hall, South Great George's Street, Dublin 2.

The Brazen Head, Bridge Street, Dublin 8. Keogh's, South Ann's Street, Dublin 2.

The Brazen Head







Finish in O'Donoghue's Bar, 15 Merrion Row, Dublin 2, if you can get in? These are all very Old Dublin pubs and will have music and "craic" most nights.

For out of Dublin pubs, Gibney's of Malahide or Johnny Fox's in the Dublin hills, are great pubs, allways busy and with a great bar menu, book a table. . . "
