The Dubliner is a great location to come party with friends. It is very centrally located, beer is affordable and the live bands and hit songs are great!

Went to The Dubliner after visiting the Beerhouse. Great atmosphere and drink fairly priced. Upstairs has more of a Clubby feel with a dance floor. Awesome visit. Had a great time.

Always a good spot to grab a beer, and the live music can be a fun change-up to some of the other offerings on Long Street. The scene at the Dubliner is really hit or miss, sometimes lively, sometimes empty. Really diverse scene, lots of...More
