The Long Hall is a really traditional Irish pub where it feels like stepping back in time. The staff are friendly and it is one of the best places in Dublin to try a Guinness. The pub has such an inviting atmosphere, it is definitely somewhere to go for a relaxing drink in Dublin.

We stopped in one afternoon with a group of friends and had a great time! It was very warm and inviting, the bar tender was really friendly and made us feel at home. It felt like we were stepping back in time! We can't wait to visit again!

Worth a visit, great choices of beers - not just Guinness! Not eaten anything here, but they may do food. We were only here for the drink - on a pub crawl of Dublin!

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.
