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.

“Very Cool Pub!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

My husband and I were told by a local restaurant manager to go to this place near Temple Bar since we wanted to stay away from the touristy part of Temple Bar and go where the locals go after work and he said this was the place! And my husband and I were not disappointed! We had a great time here! If you want to stay away from the tourist and not feel like one and feel like a local definitely come here!

“Review from The (Underaged) Hockey Team!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

We included the Comedy Club in our 2 night stay after reading good reviews on TripAdvisor. We are so glad that we did as it was our most enjoyable night. The drinks were reasonably prices and the staff were friendly!
The acts during the comedy club were hilarious! Especially "Totally Wired" and the host :)
We would definitely reccommend including this visit during your stay.

Thank you for a really good night,

The "Underaged" Hockey Team will be back soon! ;)

Nice old time pub, with lots of wood and stained glass. Glad I stopped in to have my last Guinness there before flying home.
