This is a pub which you expect to see in Dublin. Old School with oodles of charm. Friendly traditional bar man and an excellent pint!

A typical Irish pub, not particularly stylish or remarkable. Go there because James Joyce used to drink there and enjoy the history.

Mulligans is easily one of the best pubs in the city of Dublin. Any change I get to have a drink in Mulligans I jump at. The atmosphere is always fantastic, the staff are always friendly and chatty. The pints of Guinness are one of the finest in Dublin. One of the best places to go on a wet day... More

It says Est. 1782, and its not hard to believe, this is the classic Irish Pub if there ever was one. We enjoyed it. The only complaint was that there were a lot of people smoking at the entrance and the smoke wafted right through the place. Other than that, it was a fun experience.

I would have to agree with other reviewers that this was our best pint of Guinness in Ireland. We tried many all over the country and this was definitely our favorite! We were there on a quiet afternoon, but I can imagine in the evenings this pub is a fun place to hang with the locals. HIghly recommend!

This was the best pint of Guiness in the city, including the Guiness factory! Great atmosphere. Lovely friendly staff. Come early as it's heaving later on.
