The Rag Trader is one of Dublin's most unique & intimate venues. Once a fabric warehouse & today this unique and intimate bar takes you on a cultural and historical trip back to the days of the rag trade in Dublin. This enduring bar captures the rag trade era the second you set foot in the authentic door.
