There's no better way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon than squeezing in with the friendly crowd in the Brazen Head to listen to most amazing Irish music while sipping on a glass of whatever you fancy. The music and songs are new, old, traditional, soulful or amusing and it is obvious the group that play... More

The fish and chips and bangers and mash are a must here! The Baileys cheesecake and apple pie are delicious. Add a Guinness to your meal and you'll roll out happy!

Oldest bar in Dublin with multiple rooms, outdoor seating, eclectic decor. There are multiple rooms and bars which makes it interesting. We also had good service.

We only popped in for a drink, but it's very cosy and has a good atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and the Irish coffee was fab!

We loved this place. There are tons of nooks to wander around and a small dining area upstairs. The food was delicious. And the pints were perfect. The atmosphere here was exactly that Irish pub feeling we wanted.

Taxi driver from airport mentioned this pub, so thought we would have a look. When we arrived the pub was very busy and we managed to get the last table, drinks were not over priced , but because how busy it was decided not to eat here, the pub had plenty of character and has not been spoilt by modernisation,...

The Brazen Head was a terrific find for us. We were only in Dublin two nights and decided to eat there both nights! They served up traditional Irish cuisine (we had the Guinness Stew, Bangers and Mash and Bacon Collar) which was washed down with great Irish beer and cider. A very authentic experience and full of great vibes. You... More

Went to their story telling dinner our last night in Dublin. The food was delicious and the entertainment was top notch! Would have loved to have spent more time in the pub part. Oh well, just one more reason to come back to Dublin.

It was cool and very old timey. All the food looked awesome. The baileys cheesecake was to die for. Great little stop after the Guinness factory.
