Neary’s Bar and Lounge

“Neary’s is a quiet bar in the centre of the city with a wonderfully cozy vibe and good pints. The decor is interesting, very classy.”  —  Cloud Castle Lake

1 Chatham St, Dublin, Ireland
bar
Grogan’s Castle Lounge

“Another great spot is Grogan’s. It’s right in the centre of the city and was a hangout for artists and writers all through the 50s and 60s. That spirit is still alive today. Guinness is your only man, unless it’s a pint of ale.”  —  Cloud Castle Lake

Grogans Castle Lounge

“This is a proper old man’s pub right in the heart of the mainly pedestrianized area of Dublin’s city center. It’s hard to definitively say which pub in Ireland let alone Dublin makes the best pint of Guinness but Grogans is definitely in our top 3. Drink order is of course a pint of the black stuff.”  —  Hudson Taylor
