Oh my this one is a beauty. Like a lot of the old traditional pubs found in Dublin's city centre this one is just off of Grafton Street, tucked away on a quiet sidestreet.
A lot of what I began to expect as I toured these old pubs. Beautiful inside with a wonderful bar, lots of dark mahogony and polished brass. Staff dressed to the nines.
A few little differences to note. You can get yourself a Beamish here which is unusual. I think I found only two or three places that served a stout other than Guinness. The LCBO used to have Beamish until just a few years ago and its one that I miss. Had myself a nice pint.
The other thing - no TV. No music. Just conversation. Even a lot of the great pubs I went to had a TV or two. This place is perfect in its simplicity.
Just a terrific place to sit and have a pint.
