Attraction details
Owner description: 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. Open Daily from 12.30pm.

Great pub - good atmosphere, good fun. A real "Old world" Dublin pub with good character. Good location too.

“A pub unchanged for decades”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The long hall is worth a visit if only to see what an old Dublin pub looked like decades ago. Nothing much has changed since I first visited 35 years ago. It now attracts a youngish crowd compared to the 'locals' who frequented it then. Good for a pint of Guinness if passing.

“Nice pub”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Good character, full but able to find seats even on a Sunday early evening, nice selection of drinks. Quite expensive but so is everywhere in Dublin. Worth a visit.

“A good, honest pub”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

A bit off the tourist routes, this is one of Dublin's best hidden secrets. An absolute gem of a pub, looks nothing special from the outside but stretches back quite a way inside. Good service, reasonable prices, nicely decorated, no loud music. The way pubs should be.
