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.

“Authentic old world pub.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

This pub has graced the Dublin scene for many years with its polished wood and beautiful mirrors. All Dublin life is there and any visitor will find it a warm and welcoming if a little quirky in its shape

“A pub unchanged for decades”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
