There was exhibition back in 2017 to celebrate 200th anniversary of the Licensed Vintners Association (LVA), God bless them!   It told the story Dublin’s public houses from before the Victorian Era until today. “Victorian pubs in Dublin were some of the finest preserved Victorian pubs in the world and there are 16 such recognised in Dublin which remain authentically Victorian.” Said the curator of the exhibition at the time.

Dublin is not limited to Victorian Bars! But for those that want to ‘Formica Free’ pint, we have a selection which we’ve called Traditional Bars – which takes in the Victorian and adds a few more with lots of character.
