When you head to Kehoe’s, a blanket of history is draped upon you – tracing its roots back to Napoleonic times in 1803, this pub contains all sorts of memorabilia and artefacts from eras gone by. Photographs of Dublin’s famous figures, be they from arts, politics or elsewise, line the walls. Like many of the capital’s best and most spirited venues, this pub is situated right in Temple Bar, and is distinguished by its colourful flowered planters on the exterior.
This pub is almost always busy and boisterous compared with the photos here, which depict the traditional dark wood partitions, booths and lamp lit interior uncharacteristically serene. The talented serving staff manage to look after customers, remaining friendly and aware while the place heaves and pulses with activity and lively conversation. If it’s not the convivial atmosphere that keeps you here awhile, it’ll be the great drinks selection which sees the best local ales and whiskies pouring at all hours. Springtime sees Ireland’s rugby playing on the big screen, while talented musicians regale and impress guests on occasions like St. Patrick’s Day.
