Overview

Celebrating over 250 years in business. 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.

Fantastic example of a well-preserved, traditional Irish pub, complete with the eponymous long bar. An excellent pint of Guinness too I might add.

Compact pub with the usual beers/spirits and also a higher end range of whiskeys. Clientele is a mix of locals and tourists. It tips along nicely during the day and fills up quickly when the after work crowd shows up and can get quite full....More

Taking a few steps away from the overly touristy area leads you to this pub - The Long Hall. Some locals recommended it to me not only for the non-touristy nature of it but also for a local pub with lots of history. This Pub...More

It was a regular watering hole for me and some friends when I was living in Dublin 40 years ago. It has happily avoided the mores of modern bars and lounges and is still a place where you can have a quiet drink with friends,...More

We found this place near Dublin Castle. It was charming and about half the price of the more touristy Temple Bar pubs. This is a real gem.

Pricing is fair and reasonable given quality of premises and level of service. €5.20 for a pint of Guinness which the pub is renowned for having a great pint. No live music but rather the music of conversation!
