The Long Hall
The Long Hall, is an elegant traditional bar on South Great George's Street that possesses all the old charm of Dublin. It is one of the few remaining untouched Victorian pubs in Dublin.
Built in 1877, The Long Hall occupies the ground level of a four storey listed building on Dublin’s South Great George’s Street. The memorable red doors and red and white canopies have made the pub a landmark for many Dubliners. The pub looks across the street to 18th century Georgian redbricks with the magnificent fairy tale turrets and spires of the Georges Street Arcade just to the north.
Up until 1951, the bar was men only but women sitting in the hallway were served through hatches! One of the regulars in this era was notorious Dublin bad boy Brendan Behan. Another Dublin legend who frequented the bar was rock legend Phil Lynott who sank his stouts here during the filming of the video to Thin Lizzy’s ‘Old Town’. It's also a regular spot for Bruce Springsteen every time he's in Dublin.
The interior is in the style of a traditional Irish bar with paraphernalia, such as old muskets and paintings, adorning the walls.
It is said the pints of Guinness are pure perfection! It is a unique bar with a charming atmosphere.
