Definitely more of a locals pub, but that's what gives it so much charm and ambience. Service was great and so was the Craic.

Heard about this pub from a few others. Went herebon a Thursday evening, local crowd, authentic feel and good service. Would recommend for a low-key evening, the atmosphere lends itself to that.

This place was recommended by the staff at my hotel, the Temple Bar Inn, as a great place to soak up some character while knocking back some pints. A good pint of Guinness and friendly staff. It can get pretty crowded, but nobody seemed to mind.

This pub not too far from Dublin Castle is a great Victorian pub apparently little changed since it was renovated over 130 years ago. It is understood that a lot of the revolutionary Fenian uprising in 1867 was planned here. Much later the legendary Phil Lynott from Thin Lizzy filmed part of the video to 'Old Town' here in 1982....

This beautiful old pub is a must-see for anyone visiting Dublin, avoid TempleBar and its tacky fake oirishness, this is a short stroll away, a lovely place to rest your shopping bags and take some refreshment. Original Victorian features and a long window with seats for watching the world go by with a perfect pint of Guinness. Blissfully peaceful with... More

Stopped into this pub in mid-June 2014 for a quick pint and to gawk at the facility. An absolute classic Irish Victorian pub. If you're in Dublin, you have to see this pub!! Ask for Marcus and have him tell you the pubs history. He's a wonderful fellow and is passionate about preserving what The Long Hall is and stands... More

We were told by one of the locals that if you are in Dublin you must go to The Long Hall pub...and we weren't disappointed. This is a great example of a Victorian pub with lots of charm.

I've spent so much time at The Long Hall over the years that I almost feel it's my neighborhood bar even though I live over 3,000 miles away. It's a beautiful bar that offers a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of Dublin. Whether I'm drinking pints of Guinness or sipping the great selection of Irish Whiskeys they offer,... More

This place never fails to have a bustling crowd. Nothing fancy to distract you but a great place to catch up on a good chat with friends. The Long Hall has a great reputation and you can see why. It's just a gathering place for old and regular friends to catch up and meet some new friends also.
