I went to this pub with a group of 20 plus Irish and international adults, we all bought a drink and sat down outside in the garden/smoking area. One guy had a guitar and started to play various songs, we had a great sing along, with many others who were not from our original group also singing along. We stayed... More

The oldest pub in Oreland! We dropped in around 16:00 for a pint of Guiness, of course, and had a great time chatting with locals. The bar man was lovely, even let us take a picture behind the bar pouring a pint. Definitely a must see/visit!!!

Good food and music from the 9,00 pm. There is no stage for groups who play sitting... More

We stopped off here after our visit to the Guiness storehouse tour, The oldest Inn in Ireland apparently and its such a gorgeous looking pub, much bigger than it looks from the outside. We decided to eat here and the food was lovely. We then ended up staying and listening to the regular band the Brazen Hussies who were excellent.... More

Stopped for a visit at Ireland's oldest pub, the beer was great and the food amazing. Very good service to go along with it. Definetly a place I would recommend to stop and have a few drinks and a meal.

This night deserves to rank much higher as it was truly the highlight of our trip. We were a group of 4, aged between 28 and 37 and we were all very impressed. The stories were informative, captivatingly told and just the right length to still allow you the chance to chat over fantastic food with your companions. When you... More

Although a toursit attraction, the Brazen head is just a great pub to sit back and drink all day. It is a must see and still a favorite with locals. Good food too.

We have been to the Brazen Head a couple of times. Lunch was good pub grub. Our last visit was on a Thursday evening to listen to the live music. The atmosphere, the décor, the craic is excellent. Service is good too, which always helps.
