Positioned just of the bustling Grafton Street, this late Victorian, traditional pub offers welcome break from the business of Dublin’s main shopping thoroughfare.
Always comfortable, cosy & welcoming this pub is like a getting a hug from an old friend!
With its traditional red brick exterior, the entrance door is flanked on either side by two cast iron metal arm lanterns, discreetly highlighting the entrance way.Inside lies a lovely traditional pub with warm rich timber tones, marble counter tops, gleaming brass counter top lanterns , chandeliers & wall lights illuminating this cosiest of pubs.Walls are panelled with mirrored insets or wallpapered panels, seating covered in plush velour’s inviting you to sit & relax.
This is a great pub to have a chat in, no blaring music or TV just good old chat.That’s one thing I love about some of the more traditional Irish Pubs.............no music!!Just the musical sound of laughter, merriment & chatter & maybe an odd singsong...sure what more could you want??
If ever there was a traditional pub that was a good advertisement for beautiful decorative whiskey pub mirrors, then this is it.
This pub has been in the same family for 240 odd years & thank God has virtually remained untouched.Originally a grocer's / pub it is a wonderful thing to see pubs with this history & tradition being lovingly maintained over the years.A renowned spot for regular Friday Traditional music sessions, this pub has a cosy ambience that you could settle down in for the night.
With its pitch pine counter spanning along one wall the pub is divided in two by a glazed timber divider with an arched detail, a dark tongued & grooved timber ceiling hands overhead.Timber panelling fixed on a diagonal a simple but effective way of adding some detailing.The darkness of the timber to the bar, back bar & ceiling form a great backdrop to show off some of the other elements in this gorgeous pub.Namely the colourful ornate decorative Irish Pub Whiskey mirrors, the gleaming brass footrail & handrail, the schoolhouse style pendant & the checker board tiles.Here are some styling ideas to capture this look.
