The Brazen Head: "Have a pint at Dublin's oldest pub!" Dublin Nightlife Tip by Jefie
Dublin Nightlife: 469 reviews and 495 photos
Although it claims to be the oldest pub in the country, Sean's Bar in Athlone actually is a couple centuries older than The Brazen Head. But still, this Medieval pub dates back to 1198, and it is for sure the oldest pub in Dublin. It has retained all of its historic charm and character, which makes it really popular with tourists. Each of the pub's small, cozy rooms are filled with atmosphere, and so is the courtyard area. It's a good place to go when you feel like mingling with fellow world travellers, and there is something special about the idea of having a pint of Guinness in the same spot where the likes of Michael Collins and Jonathan Swift used to get together with friends and colleagues to discuss the state of their country. Don't you love it when history calls for a drink?!
