You’ll either love this place or hate it (I loved it). This bar opened during prohibition, but is only “officially” open since 1933 (when it became legal to drink again). The bartender told me a story of a woman who came in and asked what...More

It's always a treat to return to Dublin House. It's a truly authentic Irish-style pub with no frills, no food menu and decor that is decades old. Yet, the place feels "right" and the bartenders such as Michal on week nights are great. Besides a...More

This bar is worth visiting when in the area. Friendly staff that are welcoming and helped us out with directions, local knowledge and a few tales from Ireland. It's a bar, nothing fancy nothing grand. It's the way a bar should be.

Read the history- interesting back story. Cool little Irish pub on the upper west. Look for the Harp!

Spent a few years in and out of the city and this bar is oddly what I miss most. Long live the Dublin House and I hope to make it back someday.
