Owner description: The Stags Head is a historical Dublin pub featured in Dublin Pub tours renowned for it's hospitality and famous pint of Guinness! You truly capture a sense of the hidden Ireland when you accidentally stumble upon The Stag’s Head. Finding it is akin to discovering a rare treasure as it is concealed through a narrow passageway off Dame Street, although access can also be gained through Exchequer Street or Georges Street. When you enter inside this feeling of discovered booty is greatly intensified as a virtual paradise of culture and old world values confronts you. 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.

Possibly my favourite pub in Dublin. The staff are incredibly friendly, always willing to verbally guide any tourist looking for ideas. The food is simple, tastey and reasonable. The Guinness is the best!

“Ugh”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Why bother? Thought that you would be getting a great pint, atmosphere etc etc etc...... No just the usual rip off for a pint and a scrum at the bar. Whats the point? The Guiness is not great either.

“Great guinness!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Title says it all.. Guinness in Stag's Head is very good. Worth going over for one pint or two and then you can wonder off to many places which are just around the corner from this pub's door!

“Elegant old pub.”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Beautiful historic pub and the perfect place for a pint of Guinness. The Victorian interior is from another century. Check out the stained glass windows, with the stag's heads in them. James Joyce used to frequent this pub, so you know it must be good!
