My husband and I had a great time learning the history of Ireland and the culture of the past! Our host was full of great folklore and history of the countryside and had a great sense of humor. I got the impression that we need to go to visit the countryside to see what this history is all about. Excellently... More

Typical kind of Irish pub but it does have a nice feel to it, and friendly staff. Was enjoyable both at busier times and quiet times (late morning).

As this is the "oldest pub" we had to swing by. We went a little further out of our way than intended and took a gander from across the street. Didn't stop inside so I can't say anything about the food, pricing, etc. Looking is always free though!

The Brazen Head is a nice, traditional pub. We could enjoy some live music, got great drinks and the service was awesome, too. We had a great night there and would definitely recommend it to everyone!

We took a horse drawn carriage to the Brazen Head from the Guinness Storehouse and it was amazing. This place is exactly what you picture in your mind when you think of an authentic Irish Pub. The Food was great and the beer was cold. We had a great lunch here and totally enjoyed the atmosphere.

We had heard of the Brazen head being the oldest pub in Dublin and decided on a visit. We were disappointed! An old pub with lively Irish music and a great atmosphere. The bar area was dark with low ceilings as you'd expect but lots of character. We got our drinks and found a seat in the covered outside area... More

This is the oldest pub in Ireland. You must get their Beef Guiness stew. The best meal I had in Ireland. Their Irish Coffee is also the best I had in Ireland. It is busy so expect a wait--but worth it. Service was great.
