Dublin Pubs - A Walk Down Memory Lane- Davy Byrnes, Duke Street

Updated: Mar 4, 2021

In 1889 Dublin's most famous literary pub opened - Davy Byrnes - my own personal

favourite. It is my family's favourite pub too and is the meeting point for all our special get togethers. It is also the highlight of my Christmas Eve .. the atmosphere is electric, you can't move it is so busy and you usually end up with more drink on you than in you ! It may be a bit different this Chrismas but as soon as it reopens I am booking my slot for December 24th

The other special occasion is Blooms Day, celebrated each year on June 16th. The people of Dublin dress in period costume to celebrate James Joyce and his book " Ulysses ". We retrace the steps of Leopold Bloom when he met his friend Nosey Flynn in Davy Byrnes and dined on a Gorgonzola Sandwich accompanied by a glass of burgundy.

It's art deco surroundings, curved marble bar and magnificent art collection bring you back to an era that is now past but certainly not forgotten. Over the years I have many a night with family and friends in Davy Byrnes and I treasure the memories.
