The Brazen Head is the oldest pub in Dublin. The outside patio and the decor is wonderful. Very picturesque and very well maintained. We had a wonderful lunch and according to us it wins the best Guinness pour. We gave it a 9.8 out of 10. It even beat the Guinness factory!! We had a wonderful fun time in this... More

Great old place recommend by a cab driver who know everything about Dublin. Pub food and nice old wood comfortable bar. There is one corner reserved just for musicians with pictures of who have played here. Outdoor seating area as well.

During a recent visit to Dublin with our friends that haven't been here before, we went to the Brazen Head. I absolutely adore this place. Its claims may be trumped up and it may be touristy, but tough darts....I like it. The first night we were there with our friends we had apparently arrived too late for the live music.This... More

The food was good, the whisky was great, and of course so was the beer. But the best part about this historic pub was the locals we met and the atmosphere. Cozy and classic, I really enjoyed my time here.

There was a live singer on the night we visited. The bar area was packed so we sat in the lounge area. We met some other tourists who had been in the Brazen Head before. I was imporessed that they had kept the pub as much as possible in the old style rather than spoil it by making it too... More

Our cab driver recommended we visit the "oldest" pub in Dublin (or maybe oldest pub in Ireland), so we took a short walk from our hotel to this pub. Not located in the Temple Bar area. We found it nestled in Bridge Street. Signage on the wall was a great help to located the pub. Friendly staff. Very spacious pub... More

Whether you have a traditional Irish stew or a beef and Guinness stew, you will LOVE it! Wash it down with a delicious pint of Guinness and you'll be ready to take on the night!

Was there with a group and we were ushered up to the 3rd floor for dinner and entertainment. Food was good and the portions were huge. The story teller Phillip was good as well as the musicians.
