Welcome to Arthur's

A restaurant pub in the heart of The Liberties, Dublin City

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.

We do not have a television as it would interfere with the relaxed ambiance, conversation and banter.

Upstairs at Arthur's, we have a room available for private parties, functions and as a separate music venue.

Please contact us if you require any further information or have any special requirements.

The Masqued Samhain Cabaret Saturday, 01 November 2014 Adm: €10 and €8 (concession) Doors open 8:30pm

New original music, spoken word, short film, comedy, dance and classic cabaret: it’s all at The Cáca Milis Cabaret, Saturday, 01 November at 9pm in Arthur’s Live, 28 Thomas St. between Vicar Street and Guinness’s. The full bar and candle-lit tables create the perfect setting for its “post-modern vaudeville” with original artists and their work, a lot of fun and all of the finest calibre.
There’ll be costume, carnival, ciné horror and a murder ballad or two from Hostess Helena Mulkerns, accompanied by Cabaret Pianoman, musical director Josh Johnston. We’re excited to present the stunning talents of Kit Fryatt – whose Wurm im Apfel poetry events and alternative press have been at the cutting edge of the field.  We’re proud to welcome back Eamon Carr, who set up the late 60s poetry and performance collective Tara Telephone, before co-founding Horslips.  His recent work includes Haiku and drama. Sweet-voiced and soulful, songwriter and storyteller Helena Byrne joins us to perform some of her haunting new original work, accompanied by Josh Johnston. In our Ciné Sweetcake slot: Romantic Hideaway – a truly creepy short film by Andrew T. Wright – just right for Samhain. The superlative Su Hamilton will present some unique Circus Arts, featuring a spectacular new Contact Juggling act.  Delivering another amazing fusion of movement, dancer and burlesque diva Kate Finegan performs Day of the Dead Tribal Acrobalance – don’t miss either of them! And for a little of the Devil’s Music – what better than the formidable, flash-fingered guitar talents of Slidin’ PK and the Junkyard Duo, playing New Orleans and Piedmont Blues. Top of the night, one of our favourite bi-lingual performers, golden-voiced songster Enda Reilly, whose recent CD is rocking our world, and will be available for sale at the gig.
Finally, don’t miss the opportunity to pick up your copy of that commendable tome, Red Lamp Black Piano: The Cáca Milis Anthology, with its unique introduction by Patrick McCabe, and selection of writers and poets who have appeared at this eventing of the arts. With more music to be announced, raffle prizes, and a spot prize for the best retro and seasonal garb, (masks optional) it will be a great night, please join us. Show starts at 9pm (seated 8:45) Admission is €10 or €8 Food and fine refreshments. Book ahead through Entertainment.ie: e1.ie/2put or call 086-20-20-289.
