We ate at the Brazen Head a few times during our stay in Dublin and enjoyed it every time. Food was delicious and service was prompt and staff friendly. It was my favourite spot in Dublin!

The Brazen Head is a must for anyone interested in atmospheric, good quality pubs. You 'll need to to get directions as this is not in the Temple Bar district like most pubs. I would recommend visiting in off hours (not noon or dinner time)...More

We went in the early evening. I hate to think of what it's like at peak hours. We had one drink and escaped to the nice pub opposite (O'Shea's)

My husband and I visited here in the early afternoon. We just got desserts to share. The warm chocolate cake is to die for! Sooo good. We also got the cheesecake and it was good, but just cheesecake. Cool atmosphere and great service.

Really nice place to eat. Sat by the fire place and had a meal and a few pints. Spoke to a couple of locals which made it a lot more interesting.

This multi-room pub is full of atmosphere and just what we were looking for after doing the Guinness and Jameson tours and a lot of walking. The food was better than we hoped for, The Guinness beef stew was delicious and hit the spot on...More
