Recommended by a local as the best pint of Guiness in Dublin. My husband agreed. The pub is a real piece of Irish history with all original decor and friendly service. They do a great range of whiskey as well.

Long Hall is a beautifully preserved old pub much like it was, I,m sure hundreds of years ago. The bartender was very friendly and since it wasn't really busy talked to us quite a bit. The Irish people are so warm and welcoming! It was a pleasure to visit their country.

Popped in for a quick drink and time to rest after a shopping trip. The pub was quite empty I think it was due to the time of day . After lunch and before early evening drinkers. I had a couple of brandies and enjoyed them. Nothing like Hennessy to revive you. The service was excellent. Loved the Victorian decor,... More

As a student I downed many a pint here both "on the fly" before a night out & at the Sunday sessions. It's mirrored walls & light interior creating a bright, vivacious space perfect for exchanging firmly held views or listening to the fiddle & bodhran while pints were passed hand to hand over the heads of drinkers & debaters...

This is a lovely place to pop into for a quick drink. The Guinness is always good and the staff are very chatty and it's a beautiful old bar too. I'd highly recommend it.

Marvellous Victorian pub with friendly and efficient service. We were there when they had a tax free special, where they covered the cost of the criminal 30% tax on alcohol, which is apparently keeping the Irish economy afloat on the backs of publicans and their punters. Great selection, cozy inviting environment and refreshingly free of drunken yobs. A fun place... More

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.
