Where is Arthurs

28 Thomas Street Dublin

Arthur's is the nearest pub on the route to The Guinness Storehouse, one of the city's foremost tourist attractions. It is popular both with locals and tourists. Naturally it has the freshest pint of Guinness in all of Ireland.
Arthurs is a classic Dublin pub, old style but well appointed. It has been a pub for over 200 years, and has many historical connections, being beside St. Catherines Church, outside of which the patriot, Robert Emmet, was hung, drawn and quartered in 1803.
We light a real turf fire everyday, play an eclectic mix of Irish music and have live music sessions in the evenings. We offer wholesome food at reasonable prices, seven days a week.

Embracing musical diversity in a cosy environment, just sitting back to listen, is something we are passionate about. Following the success of Listen at Lilliput, in Lilliput press, we wanted to expand this ambitious “Listen” project across the city and perhaps eventually, the country, with collaborative evenings of music and spoken word. Audiences can enjoy a showcase of Irelands finest musicians and artists and will unquestionably hear something new that will inspire them.
