Now isn't the Brazen Head "grand"! From the entry through the outdoor seating area to its various rooms and bars, to the meals upstairs, the Brazen Head offers a true pub experience. The food was delicious and the drink selection was perfect for our family.

My wife and I went there for dinner and a drink. I enjoyed my bacon and cabbage but my wife's Guinness stew was sub-par compared to other stews we've had. It was noisy and crowded which is to be expected from such a popular pub but the service lacked because of it. Based off this experience we are going to... More

This was such a great stop! The bartender and servers were friendly, attentive, and helpful. The smoked salmon caper salad was very good and my husband loved the Guinness beef and potatoes. It was amazing to sit in a place with so much history! I would highly recommend!

One of the attractions we were told to visit in Ireland. It was everything we hoped for. The greatest decor, atmosphere and food was delicious .... check this out if you are off to Ireland.

Have been to this bar a few times. Lovely and quaint. Great outside seating. Unfortunately the burgers and steak sandwich are awful. Would go back for a drink but not to eat.

Don't having a pint or two while in Dublin at the Oldest Pub in Ireland. We stopped in for a few drinks and stayed to see one of the better Irish Shows in Town. The show was put on by a very lovely young lady by the name of Helena Byrne. The show was billed as Irish Folk Tales and... More
