Our Story

As the oldest pub in Ireland, we have a colourful history that spans many years.

The Brazen Head is located on Bridge Street. This is the area from where the original settlement that was to become Dublin got its name.

What people say

Historical Pub with Lots of Energy

"A historical pub with lots of energy and good vibes! Great flavorful food and service. I ordered the savory Beef Stew and washed it down with a pint of Rockshore Irish Ale. I'll definitely be visiting this pub again when I return to Dublin.."

Amazing Fish and Chips

"Amazing fish and chips! I used to live in Hawaii, and thought they had the best fish and chips. I was wrong. The Brazen Head has the best I've ever had, along with a house made tartar sauce. They also have a good selection of Irish beers."
