Overview

You truly capture a sense of the hidden Ireland when you accidentally stumble upon The Stag’s Head. This is probably Dublin’s best preserved Victorian pub - and everything here is of authentic Victorian origin. Take time to look around and savour the sumptuously carved Victorian mahogany fittings, the mosaic marble tiled floors and granite tabletops. Visiting the Stag’s Head is a wondrous experience wether you call when the premises is cosy, warm and glowing at night time, or in early morning when this is old repository of liquid culture is radiantly illuminated by wafts of sunlight filtering through the stained glass windows. The mahogany bar, capped with red Connemara marble, follows the classic Victorian architectural pattern, being long and punctuated by exquisite partitions that divide into private compartments or stalls.

The venue is great and the staff helpful. The prices of pint are reasonable, concerning the location and history. The pub food selection is limited if you have e.g. a celery allergy. Check also the bar upstairs in the evening hours!

This place is huge for pubs in Dublin. 3 stories of great beer, music and fun. Found the basement not as crowded and had a wonderful band playing traditional upbeat Irish music.

It's not the easiest pub to find, you basically have to go down a "Harry Potter-ish" lane and look for the mosaic on the sidewalk - but it's definitely worth the effort. Stepping into this pub is like stepping into the past, and it's easy...More

Let the cobblestone streets of Dublin take you to this charming and fun pub, rich with Irish history! Head down the small staircase inside the main entryway for a downstairs bar that has fantastic traditional Irish music!

They are very efficient and manage to get food and drink to people pretty quickly. Dont expect a hostess and a wait list. You go in and find yourself a seat. Someone will find you and take your order.
