Established in 1766 this shrine to antiquity is one of Dublin's oldest, most beautiful and best loved pubs, abundant in traditional charm and exuding genuine Victorian originality, the interior dates from 1881. The title The Long Hall is derived from Dublin publore as a consequence of the long narrow hallway snug, that ran parallel to the back bar. The pub is the product of splendid Victorian design symmetry in which the sum of its parts including elaborate gold leaf enhancements, meticulous handcrafted wood carvings, beveled and ornate glass all come together to create one of the iconic and leading lights of 20th century Dublin publife. Over decades, politicians, playwrights and potwallopers have imbibed here side by side. Attentive Bartenders, a warm welcome and a friendly atmosphere await you. Renowned for great Guinness. Open Daily from 12.30pm.

Great pub!

This is an old pub dating to the 1800s. Sit at the bar and talk to the bartenders. Very charming inside.

No trip to Dublin is complete without the pub experience. With so many I looked into what others were saying. The Long Hall comes up on many lists but for me "The best Guinness in Dublin" was my reason. It is very busy. It is panelled and the lighting was in the traditional style so it took my eyes a...

Our son had recommended that we 'have a pint' at the Long Haul and we did! A very easy-to-find location with a very friendly bar man.

We wanted to try some Irish beers and a traditional, less touristy pub and were recommended the Long Hall.

We had a nice chat with the staff as well as other patrons - lovely, warm and... More

I have an oil painting of this bar. I visit every time we are in Dublin. It's always busy with a great atmosphere. I recommend you try the Guinness here.

a bpu from around teh 1770-'s it excuds character and charm. It seems spotless, has a wide range of beers and whiskies, and the back of teh bar is a spectacular shimmeing apparition of all you may wish to sample. It does say that children are not allowed, which as a group of adults can be much appreciated at times.... More
