Dublin Pub Crawl

Arrival in Dublin from St. John’s was at approximately 07:00.  After some breakfast at the hotel and waiting a few hours to get into our rooms, some had a little cat nap before heading out on the pre-planned pub crawl from the hotel northward towards the Temple Bar district.  We managed to hit The Long Hall, the Stag’s Head, the Temple Bar, and the Auld Dubliner before settling in for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe.

The #1 and Oldest Pub in Dublin is The Brazen Head

Ranked #1 by Gadling.com

The Brazen Head is officially the oldest pub in Ireland and one of the oldest pubs in the world. It opened in 1198! Hopefully somebody has replaced the urinal pucks since then.

Yes, that’s the great Tom Jones, a Welshman, singing at The Brazen Head. The occasion was Arthur’s Day 2009 celebrating 250 years of Guinness brewing. If the pub is good enough for Tom Jones, then, well…
