Mulligan's of Poolbeg Street, Dublin

There are quite a few pubs with the name of Mulligan's, this one on Poolbeg Street must be the oldest however. Established in 1782 Mulligan's hasn't changed much for at least 150 years. In the 20th century this was a favourite pub of journalists, The Irish Times has been based close by since 1895. Today this pub is still busy with a mixture of patrons, it specialises in Guinness and some would say, myself included, that Mulligan's does one of the finest pints of Guinness in Ireland. Famous visitors in the past include Judy Garland and John F. Kennedy.

 

More to come of course, if you have any suggestions for your favourite pubs in Ireland do let me know by sending a message.

Just before we head out of the capital for some of Panoramic Ireland's favourite Irish pubs, let's stop by one of Dublin's most famous pubs - O'Donoghue's. This pub is legendary, it's white and black frontage is distinctive and it was here in the 1960s that The Dubliners, one of Ireland's most famous bands formed and played regularly. Phil Lynott is also said to have played here. Today the pub has music every night of the week and it has an authentic mix of locals and tourists alike.

Foxy John's, Dingle, County Kerry - Ireland

This is one of Ireland's most authentic pubs, doubling up as a hardware shop - note the boxes of things behind the counter here in this image as regulars enjoy a few pints, and a sandwich.

It's one of those places where a barman or barmaid can easily get work in a hardware environment due to that experience of selling pints and nails, sandpaper, hammers, saws, gloves etc... here. It would be a shame to visit Dingle and not visit Foxy John's.

Mark Hamill and the Star Wars crew had a party here when filming on the Dingle Peninsula.
