You've come all the way to Dublin, so you can walk a little further and visit The Brazen Head pub. It's the atmosphere, the structure, the interesting wall decorations, the old fireplace. It's a destination worth seeking out even if you don't like the beer/ale/stout on offer. There's always whiskey, right? There will be some form of refreshment for you here. It is over on the side of town on your way up a bit to get to the Jameson Experience but rather a stretch of the legs to make it. History of this location worthwhile to soak in. I have to say here that I was in the "other oldest pub in Ireland" as well...that being Sean's Bar in Athlone. So there are claims from both sides. Visit both bars, I say! Then you can brag that you have been in Ireland's oldest pub in all truthfulness.
