We attended an evening of Folk, Faeries, and song. Reservations are required. It featured truly traditional food, along with descriptions and history of it. We were treated to live traditional music and tales of faeries and leprechauns. An enchanting time.

The Brazen Head is Ireland's oldest pub. We stopped in for dinner and drinks. Food and service were good, prices reasonable. There is a large outdoor seating area.

Dublin's Oldest Pub! The building is really cool with beautiful flowers everywhere. We ate in the outdoor section which was very scenic. The food was delicious and they had some beer selection that we haven't seen in other pubs throughout the city. That was a...More
