Description: The Stags Head is a historical Dublin pub featured in Dublin Pub tours...
The Stags Head is a historical Dublin pub featured in Dublin Pub tours renowned for it's hospitality and famous pint of Guinness! You truly capture a sense of the hidden Ireland when you accidentally stumble upon The Stag’s Head. Finding it is akin to discovering a rare treasure as it is concealed through a narrow passageway off Dame Street, although access can also be gained through Exchequer Street or Georges Street. When you enter inside this feeling of discovered booty is greatly intensified as a virtual paradise of culture and old world values confronts you. This is probably Dublin’s best preserved Victorian pub - and everything here is of authentic Victorian origin. Take time to look around and savour the sumptuously carved Victorian mahogany fittings, the mosaic marble tiled floors and granite tabletops. Visiting the Stag’s Head is a wondrous experience wether you call when the premises is cosy, warm and glowing at night time, or in early morning when this is old repository of liquid culture is radiantly illuminated by wafts of sunlight filtering through the stained glass windows. The mahogany bar, capped with red Connemara marble, follows the classic Victorian architectural pattern, being long and punctuated by exquisite partitions that divide into private compartments or stalls.

The food was mouth watering (had the vegetarian option) and the service was wicked good! The bartenders (wish I knew their names) were hilarious and made my family and I feel right at home. The pub is located about 3 min walk away from Trinity college and is nestled into a charming back alley-way. Would highly recommend!

We stumbled across this pub while going for a walk after dinner. What a fantastic atmosphere. We were there on a Tuesday night, which by chance, is the night a lot of locals turn up with their ukeleles for a pub sing-a-long. A good night turned into a brilliant night with traditional Irish music and singing.

A lot of history here. Well worth the extra few euros and doing the student guided tour which provides a bit more insight. Book of Kells is aqueous usually and is a must see as is the library long room

Saturday night in August, crowds with pints spilling out onto the street around the bar. Good mix of tourists and locals. Perfectly poured pint

If your a visitor to Dublin be sure to drop in for a pint to the Stags head. Traditionally irish bar and food is very good and also good value. Tends to get a crowd from lunchtime on, great atmosphere though
