"O'Donoghues" Bars.... Tip by cpiers47

Bars...., Dublin: 103 reviews and 91 photos


There are 2 O'Donoghue's in the city. One is in Temple Bar and we were told it is inferior to the original one on Merrion Row. So, we headed to Merrion Row. Here, we found 2 crowded inside bars and a beer garden that was packed. We found a small table in the back room and enjoyed watching the groups come and go. Upstairs were clean bathrooms - a plus in any pub! More importantly, however, our young bartender really did serve a well-pulled pint of Guinness.

There were quite a few tourists but also many Dubliners who just stopped in for a pint and a chat. I believe that the music was starting late in the evening but it was in another room.
