  The Bar
by IrishFem

A great place to go again especially on a Saturday afternoon. Can get crowded at the weekends. Brendan Behan and Paddy Kavanagh (both famous writers) hung out in this pub as well as other literary people. If the bar gets to packed you can go upstairs when its slightly bigger and has more tables. The building dates back to about 1873 and was orginally Dublin's Morgue. Its a great place to meet for a few drinks before you start exploring the rest of Dublin.
