Some Dublin pubs are especially good for sitting at the bar, and this is one of them. This pub has been here for over 300 years... in Medieval times it was beside the Viking Parliament and more recently - with the Irish Parliament on College Green - has seen its share of politicians. Michael Collins used to drink here and sometimes hold meetings during the War of Independence. A keen sporting pub, hence the name, the Sam Maguire Cup (GAA) and rugby trophies have accompanied successful teams to the premises. Serving quality, hearty food that's very popular with pre-theatre diners, we advise you get here pretty early to nab a seat (7.30pm on a Saturday evening should do the trick).

Get here even earlier at the weekend and don't expect the usual faded wooden furniture, cluttered walls and dark niches of historic pubs. It's a fun, lively place for a drink, but the interior is bright and somewhat modern, which can be a let down if you're expecting a landmark bar.
