Known as Ireland’s oldest pub, the Brazen Head Pub building location dates back the 12th century to 1198. It is unclear how much of the original structure dates back to that period but you do get a sense of history within the walls of the Pub.

Definitely a must see for any Irish Visitor to marvel over the plaques and pictures on the walls which are steeped in History. Among these famous faces you will see are past clients include literaries such as James Joyce and Jonathan Swift and revolutionaries such as Wolfe Tone, Daniel O’Connell and Michael Collins.

The Brazen Head has established itself as one of Dublin’s most popular and best live music venues with live music to be enjoyed nightly.  Some of the famous musicians who have played here over the years include The Dubliners and Van Morrison. It is not unknown for some musicians to pop in for an unplanned music session.  Enjoy your evening surrounded by some lively Irish music, food and plenty of craic.
