The Long Hall
Licensed since 1766 this shrine to antiquity is one of Dublin’s oldest, most beautiful and best loved pubs, abundant in traditional charm and exuding genuine Victorian originality, the interior dates from 1881.
The title The Long Hall is derived from Dublin pub lore as a consequence of the long narrow hallway snug, that ran parallel to the back bar. The pub is the product of splendid Victorian design symmetry in which the sum of its parts including elaborate gold leaf enhancements, meticulous handcrafted wood carvings, beveled and ornate glass all come together to create one of the iconic and leading lights of 19th century Dublin pub life.
Over decades, politicians, playwrights and potwallopers have imbibed here side by side. Irish rock legend Phil Lynott recorded here the video for his hit-song ‘Old Town’ in 1982. Attentive Bartenders, a warm welcome and a friendly atmosphere await you. Renowned for great Guinness.
