We really enjoyed visiting the Brazen Head for lunch and beers. I had the honey and mustard glazed bacon and cabbage. It was AMAZING. I would definitely recommend this dish and making the trip to visit.

Said to be the oldest Irish bar in the world, it’s a must if you are visiting on vacation from out of Ireland, with many other bars in the area and the Guinness museum within walking distance.

The Brezen Head is a must do while in Dublin. Beer and food was great, particularly the fish & chips and the traditional Irish Stew. I had a couple Guinness, which was well worth the visit. Highly recommended.

Came here to see the Oldest pub. It's very pretty with it's little courtyard. Good pint of Guinness served with a smile. Didn't sample the food but it looked nice.

No need to make a reservation but if you don't you might have a little wait. Depends on the day I guess.
