  Longest Pub
by IrishFem

This is reputed to be the longest pub in Ireland. It runs to about 330 feet. The pub got its name from the time when soldiers of the Blackhorse regiment were stationed in the Phoenix Park which runs along its walls. The soldiers would buy drink from the whole in the wall, which meant that they werenÂ?t breaking military regulations by entering into the pub whilst on duty. Inside the pub there are 6 interconnected bars all with roaring log fires, snugs, stained glass windows and carved furniture. A delightful place to go on a Sunday afternoon, or in fact the evening. At the end of the bar there is a Mezzanine Bar upstairs with loud music. Bands normally play here at weekends. Also on a Sunday morning you can listen to traditional Irish music.

Dress Code: Casual during the day. No sneakers in the music bar at night.
