The Dubliner doesn't just look like a piece of Ireland-it actually is a piece of Ireland. Before getting shipped across the Atlantic Ocean to its home in the Gaslamp Quarter, the pub was manufactured on the island by O'Sullivan Interiors. What's more, it's based on an authentic pub whose roots stretch back to the early 1700s.

The Dubliner is what I would expect to see in Dublin. Irish hard cider on drought. Boxtys, shepherd's pie and of course Guinness. Old world atmosphere. Friendly, efficient service. $5 draughts during happy hour.
