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.
