My friend an i will be staying in dublin city centre area for a few days and we would love to know the names of some real traditional irish pubs and where they are situated. thank you
Mulligans of Poolbeg St is one of the oldest "traditional" Irish pubs in Dublin (behind Burgh Quay, near O'Connell Bridge). Also, Ryan's of Parkgate Street (about 3km/2miles out of city centre - get a bus or taxi). O'Shea's "Merchant" pub at Bridge Street is quite popular but would be a little more touristy. They sometimes have ceili dancing and music. Brazen Head, just across road from Merchant popular also.
If you want to go a little more city centre - off Grafton Street beside the Westbury Hotel you have McDaids, or also off Grafton St. on Duke Street you have the Duke. Neither are fabulous pubs to look at, but they are a little old school and apparently if you are a Guinness drinker, they both do legend worthy pints of the black stuff!
