A quintessential activity in Dublin is to visit a historic local Irish pub and sample a pint of Irish beer. Founded in 1850, the charming Doheny & Nesbitt pub is one of the city’s oldest Irish pubs and is a charming local place to visit. After a change of ownership over 30 years ago, the Doheny & Nesbitt pub now attracts a healthy cross-section of Dublin’s local crowd. The Victorian bar hides two small inner rooms, known traditionally as “snugs”, where women could drink out of the sight of men in decades past. For a wild and rowdy atmosphere, visiting the Doheny & Nesbitt during the weekends and during major rugby matches; for a quieter atmosphere, come during the week to savour a peaceful drink in one of the city’s most historic places. Despite its popularity, with crowds spilling onto the street during some evenings, the Doheny & Nesbitt’s pints are well-priced and also offers a decent menu of traditional Irish fare if you want to make a night of it.
