The Brazen Head in Dublin is officially the capitals oldest public house, with the building that stands today dating way back to the 1750’s.
Once a meeting place for rebels and some other well known characters, this once lantern-lit pub is a long-established tourist favourite, providing live music and Irish storytelling along with ample pints of the black stuff and a cracking atmosphere to boot.
