Established in 1766 this shrine to antiquity is one of Dublin's oldest, most beautiful and best loved pubs, abundant in traditional charm and exuding genuine Victorian originality, the interior dates from 1881. The title The Long Hall is derived from Dublin publore as a consequence of the long narrow hallway snug, that ran parallel to the back bar. The pub is the product of splendid Victorian design symmetry in which the sum of its parts including elaborate gold leaf enhancements, meticulous handcrafted wood carvings, beveled and ornate glass all come together to create one of the iconic and leading lights of 20th century Dublin publife. Over decades, politicians, playwrights and potwallopers have imbibed here side by side. Attentive Bartenders, a warm welcome and a friendly atmosphere await you. Renowned for great Guinness. Open Daily from 12.30pm.

Our taxi driver recommended this pub and boy was he right. This is an authentic Irish pub that hasn't change. You walk in and the smell, sound and atmosphere is special. Bar tender was very nice to us and people around us were friendly and nice to chat with. Make sure to visit!!! Sláinte!!!

We visited for a few pints one afternoon and it was a lovely stop. Nice and quiet and easy to get a table. The drinks selection was good and the barman was so friendly. It's a beautiful pub with really old decoration. There's not enough places left like this anymore!

Open since 1776 and still going strong the Long Hall is obviously doing something right. Sadly, we only had an hour to spare, but would have gladly spent the entire evening had it been possible. The decoration is Victorian - smoked glass, polished mahogany and brass chandeliers - the company is a nice mix of locals and visitors and the... More

When in Dublin, see the sights....including The Long Hall. We stopped in one night and stayed for a drink. We couldn't pass up drinking at such a historic pub. :)

One of my friends loves this pub so we meet up here on a regular basis. The service is quick and they have a good selection of beers and spirits. It does get very busy.

Disgraceful, another example of the greedy publican robbing the public. there is no excise duty on this beer so why the price point? Where is your social conscience? Punishing those who want to choose a healthier option, or take a break from alcholic drinks during the night or the person who is driving 3 other punters to your establishment and... More

MPH2008, Owner at The Long Hall, responded to this review

Dear Dubadvisor82, This year the 250th Anniversary of the first licensing of The Long Hall we marked 44 years as custodians of this great pub, the longest it has been in the same family in its history. We certainly did not achieve this landmark by being greedy, robbing or punishing anyone so I take great exception to your frankly flippant... More
