The Long Room

Irish Famine Memorial

The Grave Diggers
John Kavanaghs Pub, Glasnevin -
Tour Glasnevin cemetery and when you’re done, pop out the back gate into the pub for the creamiest pint of Guinness going. Once frequented by mourners and gravediggers of Glasnevin cemetery, the pub was actually built into the walls of the cemetery and still has the original bar counter and low ceilings.
You’ll find this bronzen beauty outside the favourite haunt of the Thin Lizzy front man - Bruxelles, Harry St, Dublin
