The Brazen Head claims to be the oldest Pub in Ireland, having been established in 1198. That 'fact' is contested by some other long established pubs in the country but never-the-less there's no denying the old timey feel of this great pub. Located close to the river Liffey on lower Bridge street, the Brazen Head offers a lively, intimately-sized yet spacious beer garden with seating, decent Irish food, great craic, live traditional music and a fun, friendly atmosphere surrounded by aged, dark-wood decor. It is quiet popular among tourists for all of these reasons but it does have a good contingent of local regulars as well as some local Dublin bar staff so you won't feel like you've wandered into a total tourist-trap. It's a good pit-stop en-route to or from the Guinness Storehouse for some traditional food such as Irish stew or Fish & chips.
