Established in 1899, Grogan’s is a traditional
Dublin pub that has been and still is a haunt
of Ireland’s artistic avant-garde including
literary greats such as Patrick Kavanagh, Flann
O’Brien, J.P. Donleavy and Liam O’Flaherty.
Traditional to the core, there are no TV
screens or background music, just amiable,
welcoming bar staff with plenty of stories to
tell. None more so than the joint proprietor
Tommy Smith who has been watching the scene for over 40 years. The interior has
a 1950s feel and continuing its association with the arts, the walls are festooned
with paintings by local artists which are for sale on a non- commission basis.
Outdoor seating spills onto Castle Market making it a busy hub on the street.
The ambiance attracts an eclectic mix of students, business suits, old fashioned
drinkers and Dublin’s glamorous youth, who meet to talk and mingle or just have
a few quite drinks in peace.
Open: Mon- Thurs 10.30am-11.30pm, Fri-Sat 10.30-12.30am, Sun 12.30-
