Description: Welcome to Nearys Bar & Lounge Neary's is a UNESCO City of Literature Bar located in Dublin City Centre. The connection to acting and the literary community date's back to 1871 when the Gaiety theatre opened. The stage door to the Gaiety theatre is located opposite the rear entrance to Neary's. Famous patrons over the years include Maureen Potter, Jimmy O'Dea, Flann O'Brien and Ronnie Drew to name but a few. Neary's is one of a small number of bars with no television or music, where conversation is a valued commodity. We hope you have an opportunity to visit Neary's at some point and we look forward to ensuring you have a memorable experience.

“A little disappointed”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

Great old fashioned Irish pub where bar tenders are still serving in white shirt and bow but I would have to say the night I was there they were functional but not very friendly.

“Always my First Stop in Dublin”
Reviewed 3 December 2012

Wherever I visit a familiar city, there's usually one place that I head straight to - a place that make's me know I'm back. In Dublin, that's Neary's. It is a very traditional old pub - they pour a great Guinness, and, at lunchtime, they have basic but good sandwiches. If you're on your own, grab a paper and sit at the bar - you'll find yourself talking to one of the locals in no time.

After our lunch, we just headed to this nice and quiet bar for an Irish coffee. Good and relaxing place to talk and rest.
