Brazen Head

Dublin's (possibly Ireland's) oldest pub was built on the site of a tavern dating back to the 12th century - and it's still going strong. Full of genuine character, this friendly, well-run pub has lots of different levels and dark corners.


Food is wholesome and middle-of-the-road at reasonable prices - visitors will be pleased to find traditional favourites like beef & Guinness stew and Irish stew, but there are also more contemporary dishes like stuffed breast of chicken with sage & sausage meat, wrapped in bacon - and a lot of seafood.


Live music nightly in the Music Lounge.

Seats 80 (private room 40, outdoor seating 40). Open every day,12-10: L12-6 & D 6-10 daily (Bar meals 12-9). Closed 25 Dec & Good Fri. Amex, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations

Sad as Dubliners were to see the 2012 closure of one of the city’s most iconic businesses, the Dublin Woollen Mills (where James Joyce, no less, once worked), it is cheering to see Elaine Murphy and the team from the equally iconic Winding Stair next door serving u ...
