We loved the Brazen Head. We walked in very wet from walking in the rain (without rain gear) and enjoyed our pint Guinness at a table int he bar area. We loved soaking inthe History and meeting some locals with our kids.

Not far from the more commercialized and, perhaps, over-hyped Temple Bar area, this gem is purported to be the oldest in Ireland. True or not, you should stop in for a pint or a meal, with music at night. We made in on our first day in Dublin and will return. It's everything you imagine in an old Irish pub. The photos and furnishings are worth a viewing. Of course there 's plenty of beer choices, and the mid-afternoon lunch we had, a panini for each of us, was very good. Add it to your list!

From the second you walk in this is a traditional Irish pub. We had drinks and food. The beer was of course delicious. Had a great pale ale. All the food we ordered was amazing. The Guinness and beef stew was outstanding. Even their homemade soups were delicious. We actually went back for dinner after having lunch first day in Dublin. We went with our two daughters and parents and everybody was very friendly to us.

Oldest pub in Ireland , very cool place. Steeped with history and lots of old pix and stories. We only had drinks but would def go back again and recommend it to anyone wanting true pub experience. Cheers
