Great Irish Pub in town I wanted to experience authentic Irish food and atmosphere in a pub. Lunchtime at the Stags Head was lovely. The food and service was fantastic. Would recommend to all visitors.
Perfect end to a Guinness pub crawl We had done the Connoisseur visit to the Guinness Storehouse earlier in the day and asked the bartender there which were the best Guinness pubs in Dublin. He recommended several which we visited but this one really stood out. It's just a great old fashioned pub with huge stags' heads on the wall and a nice clientele. Some of the other pubs were a bit aggressive or way too crowded - or lacked charm. This was perfect.
One drink only I didn't feel like staying there longer than for one drink, seems to be too crowded all the time. On new year's eve we couldn't even get in, it was so crowded but that wasn't the bar's fault.
