“Dinner, Drinks and Stories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Philip the Story Teller was wonderful...It was our last night there and it was awesome. We listened to Irish music as well, but the stories are what we came for.
The food was excellant. I have celiac and I have to eat Gluten Free. They helped me choose what I could have and IT WAS DELICIOUS..! We were a party of 6 and everyone of us enjoyed the whole experience.
If you're in Dublin....DON'T MISS THIS STOP !

“historic pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Visited this early on our trip to Dublin and went back - the history is amazing. Bartenders were very friendly, and it was a nice touch imprinting a shamrock on the head of a pint of Guinness.

“Old Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Nothing like being in a 1,000 year old bar in Dublin listening to a great story teller, drinking Guinness, eating good Irish food.

“Food was ok, but beer was great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Food was just ok and the service was mediocre, but the history of this establishment is well worth the experience.

“History and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The Brazen Head is the oldest pub in Ireland. The food was delicious but you can wander from room to room and get a sense of stepping back in history. I loved the historic items in the pub. We had lunch in the "coffin" room - called this because there is a coffin leaning against the wall. Some say it just appeared there one night and it has not been opened. Wonderful place!
