A cracking pint of Guinness and the plumpest, tastiest mussels in Dublin. Great service, really pleasant staff and reasonable prices. What more could you ask for?

Decent pub food (had the irish stew) and good live music. A little courtyard if the weather's fine enough. A perfectly fine pub.

The Brazen Head in Dublin is one of the oldest pubs, so no trip to Dublin is complete with a stop here! It is a traditional old Irish pub with Guinness, history and a few interesting local characters.

Stopped in here for a Guinness or two whilst walking around the city! Great outdoor area to sit and enjoy on a dry day! Good service at fair prices! Nice historic pub! Oldest in the city!!

Great bar! Definitely has character being such an old bar. However, this is not the oldest bar in Ireland as it claims.

Very busy but the food was delicious. You have to go to say you have been. The staff are pleasant but one or two under pressure lots that Irish charm but overall well worth a visit 😊

No need to make a reservation but if you don't you might have a little wait. Depends on the day I guess.
