Stayed around the corner from this gem of a pub! Absolutely fantastic! All ages! As a large hen group we would come here every evening and would often return here after a quick browse around the pubs in temple bar. Plenty of seating, good bands (we were here around the bank holiday) and good bar service and prices.

The taxi driver and the hotel staff recommended stopping at The Brazen Head. It was a great sight to visit after doing the Guinness Storehouse. I easily found a seat inside at the bar. The staff were professional and quick. The Irish Stew came out fast.

Came around noon on a weekday and was seated quickly. We sat inside but you could also sit outside. A little loud but not too noisy. Had wings as an appetizer. They had more of a spicy dry rub as opposed to a sauce, but none the less were great. I got the grilled chicken for my meal and wasn't... More

The oldest pub in Dublin according to the sign.The best pint of Guinness we had while in Dublin and we had a good few.Breakfast was expensive so we gave it a miss,lovely building and worth a visit even if it's just for the decent pint

Apparently Dublin's oldest pub (818 yrs old!) it was crowded, difficult to get seating and spotty service.. Didn't matter, this place is so cool, this is a must do.. Decent food too

First stop in Dublin. A late lunch for hungry travelers. 1500 very light crowd. Perfect way to start our trip. Traditional pub fare as well as some fresh salads, etc. and of course, a pint of Guinness for all.
