The Brazen Head has a doughty accolade to its name: it is officially Ireland’s oldest pub, dating back to the end of the 12th century. Built from sturdy masoned stone, the interior plays up to its Medieval heritage while maintaining a warmth and modernity native to any good pub. As well as a cheerful interior, for the summers an attractively decorated beer garden courtyard keeps guests joyful under the sun. House favourites like beef & Guinness stew and the sizzling glazed loin of bacon accompany traditional favourites like bangers and mash.
Entertainment is frequent, with local guitarists and fiddlers often performing on weekends to imbue a real atmosphere of Irish hospitality, while storytelling evenings confer mystique and suspense as you enjoy your meal. The superb location a short ways up from Temple Bar near the Post Office on the River Liffey make this pub a great stop off during afternoons or evenings. Patrons rate The Brazen Head highly for its lovely, charming staff, its commitment to authenticity, and its menu’s all-round tastiness.
