The famous Victorian pub is now favoured as a comfortable spot for lunch or after work drinks in convivial surrounds

The Bailey

Although it's now styled cafe-bar and more of a busy lunchtime spot and after-work watering hole for local business people and shoppers, this famous Victorian pub has a special place in the history of Dublin life - literary, social, political - and attracts many a pilgrim seeking the ghosts of great personalities who have frequented this spot down through the years.

Coffees and scones 9-11.30; food menu 12-9. Closed 25 Dec & Good Friday. abbreviations
