We went to this place on the recommendation of a cabbie after visiting Guinness. We had drinks and dinner. Unfortunately the beautiful courtyard had no available tables but we found a cozy one just inside. Food was great as were the drinks. Don't miss it!!

This is said to be the oldest pub in Ireland. And the height of the ceiling can confirm that. Such a cozy and nice pub with great burgers and a good pint of Guinness.

Not worth it. We were super excited about the history of this place and stopped in for a late lunch. The food was alright, the beer was overpriced (expected though), and the staff was RUDE and not welcoming at all! We were ready to go...More

If you enjoy pub atmosphere, the Brazen Head is a must. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was true Irish pub. It can be tough to find a seat, and it's pretty loud, but we all enjoyed it very much.

Dublin's oldest pub and it has a ton of character and great atmosphere. The Fish and Chips and Beer Stew were absolutely delicious! If your looking for good Irish pub dishes, you must come to the Brazen Head!
