The Brazen Head Pub, Dublin

Dating back to 1198, The Brazen Head, in Dublin, is just over 800 years old and the oldest pub in Ireland.

The pub has retained the charm and characteristics of its past and its patrons, who, over the years have purportedly included such literaries as James Joyce, Brendan Behan and Jonathan Swift as well as revolutionaries such as Robert Emmet, Wolfe Tone, Daniel O'Connell and Michael Collins.

The Brazen Head has live music 7 nights a week and has a good reputation for fine food, serving both traditional and contemporary dishes.

James Joyce famously referred The Brazen Head in his book, Ulysses:

"Corley, at the first go-off, was inclined to suspect it was something to do with Stephen being fired out of his digs for bringing a bloody tart off the street. There was a dosshouse in Marlborough street, Mrs Maloney's, but it was only a tanner touch and full of undesirables but M'Conachie told him you got a decent enough do in the Brazen Head over in Winetavern street..."

A "Brazen Head" was a prophetic device attributed to many medieval scholars who were believed to be wizards, or who were reputed to be able to answer any question.
