Nancy Hands Bar & Restaurant combines relaxation with live music, a roaring fire occupying one corner with the atmosphere firmly planted in the traditions of the old-fashioned Irish public house. Popular with Dubliners as well as visitors wanting a slice of traditional Celtic food and drink, this lovely example of an old time bar is adorned with old artworks. A wide selection of whiskies and beers are available, with the menu home to the stews, steaks and lamb joints – that good pub grub visitors expect.
Perhaps most notable of all are the Nancy’s Shenanigans, which offer visitors a superb evening of entertainment with a three course meal included in the bargain. Stories of the building itself and the nearby Phoenix Park are told, while traditional Irish folk ditties are played by fiddlers accompanied by long time singers who encourage the audience to sing along. A few unusual crafts invented round Dublin are demonstrated too, such as the making of Guinness-infused bread.
So whether you’re just after a meal or a full-blown night of real Irish entertainments and joy, the Nancy Hands Bar & Restaurant is well-worth considering.
