The Brazen Head, Dublin Reviews

  • Great place. But fills up soon. I would recommend an odd time so not “exactly” lunch and early supper then stay for the music. Food was fantastic. Definitely get the Bangers and Mash or the Mussels Pot. We ate at one of the bars and those bartenders were busy, busy still managed to check on us regularly and made sure our glasses stayed full. All with a smile and being engaging. I was very impressed. This place is a must do on anyone’s trip to Dublin. It is busy, so don’t get discouraged. Just give it time.

  • First off, if you come into the Brazen Head, you can't leave without trying the Baked Bailey's Cheesecake. Such a great dish! Overall, the staff were excellent (I'd specifically like to shine the spotlight on a server named Mark), the place had authentic ambiance, and some great food. Will definitely return whenever my travels bring me back to Dublin. Just a few tips before visiting: this place is packed nearly all day, so it can be difficult to grab a table inside or out. And if you're looking to catch some music during your evening, shows begin around 9 o'clock every evening. No matter what you get or when you go, you'll definitely be pleased!

  • The Brazen Head is amazing! It is the oldest pub in Ireland, dating back to 1198. Their bangers and mash dish was excellent and the atmosphere was relaxed yet exciting. They have an excellent selection beer and cider. They also seem to be kid friendly during the day and early evening. Highly recommend if you are in Dublin!

  • Really great. Amazing atmosphere and friendly classic Irish staff. The menu has a great selection of classic Irish dishes. The chowder was so great and had accompanying Soda bread. All my friends loved their dishes. The Guinness was poured to perfection. While a bit more expensive than surrounding pubs it’s worth it for the experience.

  • The building itself and the history is very cool and worth the visit. Food is fine and everyone is a tourist. Don't believe this whole "locals go there" thing. Not from what I saw. When the live band asked for Irish song recommendations from the crowd, you could practically hear the bubbles in the Guinness. I mean, I don't know any Irish songs and as I looked around at a room full of blank-faced Americans, it was pretty obvious that none of them did either. Fortunately, the band was Scottish so they cut us some slack. Whew.
