i like the living room, will occasionally go there before the home games but it's an eastern european pub, and with russia playing make sure to check the times of their games that they don't clash.

Why cant you go to the game if you can watch it in a pub around the corner from the ground.  There are more tickets on sale.

Unfortunatley being 19 in a recession means money for match tickets is non existant. So sober night in the pub will have to do

There's a pub I always pass on the bus on the way home near The Big Tree called the Auld Triangle. Hunger strikers memorial on the facade but apart from any anti/pro IRA replies, good spot for a pint?

Mate of mine is from Dorset street and I have ventured into the triangle with him a few times. Nothing to worry about Muff, it's a grand spot and the pints are great.Thumbs Up

Auld Triangle is fine. Been there a couple of times. Sure they're well used to culchies and strangers with Croke Park around the corner.

The Auld Triangle is a fine pub. I drank in there a few times when I lived in that part of town. Nothing wrong with it, and a decent pint too.

The only pubs that are dodgey are the ones with drunk aggressive teenagers, as they are more likely to kick off that elder folks.

The dodgier the boozer the more chance of bumping in to some 'characters'.

If you behave yourself and keep yourself to yourself, you'll have no trouble whatever boozer you decide to scoop in.

There is only one pub I know of that I wouldn't venture into Morrissey's on Cork Street, But if I did I'd say I'd find the usual dipso oul lads propping up the bar that would talk to anything. 

It's probably only dodgy at certain times when certain individuals are in with the lads

Are you confusing that with Morrissey's on Cork Street? I went in there to watch the Charity Shield in 2007 as the moth was in the Coombe just after having our first child.

An absolute sh*thole. Full of families of the biggest scrotes you could imagine to meet. Felt really uncomfortable in there. One of those places where everyone knows each other. Some knacker was in selling clothes that I presume he'd just robbed in town.

Was gonna say Morrisey's on Cork St. as well. Taking your life in to your own hands going in there.,

If only you'd taken a left and headed up to Lowe's, Franko. Gem of a pub. Just the right kip/characters/creamy pints ratio.

Although forgot you don't drink Guinness! Seriously, a pint in there will change your outlook on things.

Jesus I'm only enquiring about the place LOL

Bit hard to hop in when I'm in a moving vehicle. I'm never really in that part of town but will land in for a scoop if I am sometime. 

About 99% of my locals in Dublin are sh*tholes but the pints are cheap  LOL

Went in for a piss once on the way home but didn't land into the bar. Very close to dolphins barn and never had an iota of hassle anytime day or night I went through it.

I lived for a year on Cork Street, just around the corner from Morriseys, when I was 21. I used to watch matches in it all the time, especially but not exclusively the early kick off ones. I remember the Ronaldo goal against Fulham in 2007 when he ran half the pitch and scored the winner in the 88th minute, the place went mental. Good times.

I never had the slightest bit of bother. Now, I am a United fan, and so were most of the clientele (when United matches were on), so there was no hassle. I didn't watch United v Liverpool games in there, mind.

Still, the people were decent enough and I never felt threatened.

Yeh, it's still there. Been a while since I was in it but they have sessions upstairs. It was quiet enough the couple of times I was in there. It might get some of the Sackville Lounge crowd which closed down recently.

The Confession Box is still going alright. Sort of place where you can get chatting to anyone. Great for a stop after one of the quieter Dubs games, you'd love the crowd for that PM!

MacNeills on Capel st. is a great spot for interesting characters. Met a few gaeilgeoir poets last time.

Not many places I wouldn't go but Sunset House is one (think its changed names after the shooting..). There was one under Harold's Cross bridge I never liked the look of, not sure if its still there. And one on a corner at the back of James' gate.

That's a nice spot and pints are very cheap. Real locals place but not a bit rough.

The only time I drank in that pub, one of the locals was selling disability car parking stickers and bus passes. I drove by the place every day for years on way home from work and the smoking area (Gardiner St side) used to have the same bogey looking heads every day. Looks like the kind of place you would put an order in with a shoplifter to stroke clothes and toys for the kids for Christmas!

Might be grand on match day or if there was a concert on but even at that, I wouldn't go near it!

Now it is probably 3 years since I've been near it so perhaps it's a lovely establishment now with Tapas on a Thursday and Jazz music on Monday nights!

I'm from the area. Apparently it went under a change of ownership and whoever was previously barred are now the regulars LOL my old man drinks there occasionally and i'd know a few of the people in there but it wouldn't really be my kind of a spot, if as much because i'd be far younger than most of the clientele as any other reason. Havent really heard of any more trouble from it than the other local pubs though tbh

Instead of some bar full of lads with short trousers, shoes, no socks, fake glasses, heavy beards, who are vegans and drinking craft beers and who have all decided to become homosexual for spring because it's in the in thing to do.

Funnily enough I would really fancy a cruise along Norway's coastline, Norway could I ever afjord it though.

That is a great idea though, can we just put them all on boats? Is the boat powered by their farts or their smugness? And, biggest question of all, who can they feel superior too if they are all vegan?

The Confession Box is still going alright. Sort of place where you can get chatting to anyone. Great for a stop after one of the quieter Dubs games, you'd love the crowd for that PM!

MacNeills on Capel st. is a great spot for interesting characters. Met a few gaeilgeoir poets last time.

Not many places I wouldn't go but Sunset House is one (think its changed names after the shooting..). There was one under Harold's Cross bridge I never liked the look of, not sure if its still there. And one on a corner at the back of James' gate.
Think that's Harkins your on about! Great pub and a brilliant pint! Everyone 100%

Harold House? 

That's a nice spot and pints are very cheap. Real locals place but not a bit rough. 

Is that under a bridge? Nope

those ones are across the road and closed.

I think this thread has been done before.

The Chancery on the Quays is some spot if you're looking for a Saturday morning rollover session with all the performer enhancers to keep you going close at hand .
Also the Inn on the Liffey was a rough gay bar but I don't know if that's still going.

Yes on both counts. You could have a very interesting Saturday morning in The Chancery if the right people were in there.

The White Horse was the same but it's sadly now a Starbucks

Shame to hear the White Horse is closed, I had a couple of very unusual 'plough on through the hangover' type mornings in there. It was only the third time I was in it that I actually knew what it was!LOL Came across it when strolling around and decided to have a lunchtime pint, was full of characters then too, most of whom gave the impression they were being paid for having a pint.

Within 30 minutes of me going in he kicked out two steameds auld fellas. One was apparently bothering women earlier on and ranted to the barman "Excuse me for being Irish"

Wtf has that got to do with anything?

Another fella came in looking for a pint and the barman wouldn't serve him as he said he was falling all over the place last night and your man goes "But I'm alright now"

Grand spot. Just an auld mans pisshead local but not rough. I'd say the H Block mural would put off the Ian O'Dohertys off this world from going in.
