When in Dublin on a tour of Ireland you will enjoy exploring and sampling the local eateries and pubs. “Davy Byrnes” is one to consider. It is especially busy on rugby weekends and the atmosphere is fantastic.
Anybody who is familiar with Dublin pub food will be aware of Davy Byrne’s food reputation, in which seafood is the specialty. If you visit the premises at lunchtime and evening time, you will witness the huge trade which is done in fresh salmon, smoked salmon and crab dishes. There is also a full range of hot meals and salads to compliment these and, as often as not, you can enjoy a lunch or an evening meal of oysters and Guinness.
The decor of Davy Byrnes is original, authentic and pre Second World War in theme. You will notice the three educational murals of Joycean Dublin by Liam Proud, the priceless murals of the 1940’s by Cecil French Salkeld, who was Brendan Behan’s father-in-law and the fine sculptors of Eddie Delaney and John Behan.
If you get the opportunity to examine the murals when the premises is not busy, you will notice one of the man that first came to this premises one hundred years ago – Davy Byrne. As he surveys the premises from his majestic throne, you can reflect on an age that is past but not forgotten in a premises which is one of Dublin’s most active fashionable and sought out watering holes. As a well known Irish bar offering the highest quality pub food you also get a great pint of Guinness…
