Dating back to 1770, the pub was rebuilt in 1894-95, and was the first pub in Dublin to be lit by electricity. Magnificent stained glass depicts the Stags Head theme throughout eight windows. This was a pub Joyce drank in from time to time. The interior has proved attractive to film makers: scenes from The Treaty, December Bride, and Educating Rita have all been shot here. The bar retains the old barrels in which Jamesonns ten-year-old liqueur whiskey was distributed in the last century.
