Went to find this pub with the girls, as it's the oldest pub in Ireland and wasn't sure what to expect but it was a great atmosphere, good live Irish music! And a nice outdoor seating area. Besides the expensive drinks, I Would definitely recommend a visit! :)

A must visit for any travelling to Dublin! Prices weren't bad, would probably be average for the area. Being the "oldest pub in Dublin", it provided great character and atmosphere. Great selection of beer choices. Unfortunately the one day we were there, our server wasn't the best, and the second day we went, we found out they don't serve food... More

We were told this was a short walk from the Gael....well, I've come to learn that a 10 minute walk to me is different from what a 10 minute walk to an Irish person, lol. It was worth the walk! Great historic pub with a joyful atmosphere, great Guinness and really delicious pub food. The menu was the same as... More

Great little pub. You have got to visit here, it's full of history and the foods great! Staff really friendly. It's brilliant inside to see all the notes around the walls and pictures.

A beautiful old Pub within 10 mins walking distance of the Guinness Storehouse. The Guinness is perfect, the food is beautiful. The Atlantic Chowder ......Yum! Live music is heart-lifting and we LOVED this wonderful, old pub. Well worth a visit.

Whilst walking between the Jameson and Guinness tours, we stumbled upon this place and I'm so glad we did. Very authentic pub, "Ireland's oldest". Place was packed with tourists and locals alike. Had a traditional Irish Stew which was amazing, and a Guinness. This place is a must!

Claiming the oldest Pub in Dublin, The Brazen Head delivers! If you're in Dublin, you owe it to yourself to walk over and see history... Offering food & plenty of drinks you will be pleased. There is indoor and outdoor seating. The outside seating is still with in a 'walled' area with open roof. This area is very cool with... More
