The Rag Trader

With everything you'd expect from the cosiest of boozers - a traditional look, fireplaces, wallpapered or wood panelled walls, and classic pub grub from sister bar Dakota, The Rag Trader is a great choice for your next outing. Plus, the bar's stock of more than 100 whiskies is sure to warm you up too.

The Temple Bar

One of the best cosy pubs in Dublin city centre that needs no introduction, this iconic boozer offers the holy trinity of pubbing; great beers, food and a fully-licensed beer garden. They've also won awards for their live music programming and claim to house over 410 different whiskeys.

Kehoes Pub

Head down Anne Street and you'll find this award-winning watering hole tucked away among the shops. Decked out with mahogany hideaways, the venue provides an escape with live music, comedy and some of the finest pours in the city. One of the best snugs in Dublin? Absolutely.

The Bleeding Horse

A pub for all seasons, The Bleeding Horse is one of the best Dublin bars for sports fans, music buffs and craft-beer lovers alike. Friendly and comfortable, it's got a little something for everyone from cocktails and vegan curries to juicy burgers and one epic whiskey list.

Coupling old world values and Irish charm, The Stag's Head has some seriously stunning interiors. From wrought-iron chandeliers to traditional music and stomach-filling plates of food, this is one of the top quiet pubs in Dublin city centre; so settle in with a pint and a plate of grub.

The Long Hall Pub

The Long Hall was established around 1766 and still bears a lot of its original features. From handcrafted engravings to antique clocks and ornamental glassware, this place has beauty on its side alongside delicious pints, spirits and grub, proving it's more than just a pretty face.
