Pre Christmas drinks We had a couple of drinks on 23rd December after finishing up work for Christmas. We were lucky enough to nab two stools at the bar and we really enjoyed a couple of hours soaking up the festive atmosphere. The staff are great.
"Sure where would ya get it" Old School My title is very much an Irish phrase of praise. I am a 'Dub' through and through and am familiar with the Stag's Head and other great Dublin pubs but a recent trip with three friends left us with a smile on our faces and reassurance that the Stag's Head is still that authentic, old-school Dublin pub, drop in if you are in town and want to see why we all love this town and the Stag's Head. My little story. I asked for a 'rusty nail' which is a shot of Scotch and a shot of Drambuie in a glass with ice. The lounge girl said they had no scotch, I said Irish will do. She came back and said they had no Drambuie. I felt someone was playing a joke or it was being lost in translation so went up to the bar. I was told, they only stock Irish, fair enough, but also that indeed they did not have any Drambuie. No worries, but before I could say another word, Brian the barman said, we'll sort you out and disappeared out the door. Few minutes later my rusty nail arrived with Brians recommendation of a tiny drop of white lemonade (yup, good call!). A bit of banter struck up and we were 20 to 30 mins shootin the breeze with Brian, and as always happens in Dublin we ended up with about a half dozen people we both knew. Great evening and as I say, drop in, you'll have the authentic craic.
Beautiful pub with looooots of wiskeys If you want to get a decent taste of irish wiskey and beer, and have it in a great atmosphere, then this is the place for you. It is "only" 200 years old, but plenty of charme.It's a pity that dinner is served only till 6 pm.
