If you are in Dublin you should visit one of their oldest pus. They have great atmosphere and some real characters. I tried an old Irish favourite Bacon & Cabbage in a creamy sauce all washed down with a pint of Smithwicks. Love Smithwicks!!

I was praising our luck to find a pub with fresher options other than just fish and chips (which my daughter said was better than she'd had... More

We really enjoyed our visit to The Brazen Head. Easy to find and great outdoor area where we ate and had some drinks. Definitely recommend a visit to this authentic oldest pub in Ireland!

The room they played in was chocka and when they played Rock your Mama the crowd went wild. Stayed and had quite a few drinks as it was great but stayed in... More
