Lovely bar with fresh staff. Great stop for a pint and toasted sandwich while exploring the city. Worth visiting for the decoration alone.

We have been meaning to visit the Stag on many occasions but never quite made it. However we finally popped in for a pint and have to say loved it. Beautiful Victorian decor real old school and better for it. Lovely to sit and relax...with a excellent pint of Guinness without the benefit of TV screens and loud music. Didn't eat here so can't comment on that aspect but we are told it's very good. Will try on our next visitMore

An old Victorian Dublin public house decorated fitted out in old marble and mahogany fittings gives it a great atmosphere , the barmen pull great pints .

If you want a quintessential pub experience in Dublin, this is the place you want to be! The warm wood panelling and stained glass windows create a welcoming ambience, as do the kind and attentive staff. My daughter and I came here on my last...evening in Dublin. She is a student at Trinity College Dublin but hadn't yet experienced The Stag's Head! We both ordered a pint of Guinness as we waited for our food. While I had traditional fish and chips, she decided to go with something lighter and had their Roast Vegetarian sandwich (sundried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, goat's cheese, basil and arugula pesto), surprisingly fresh and delicious! The Stag's Head was a perfect choice to cap off a wonderful holiday in gorgeous Ireland!More

Our first night in Dublin and a friend that lives there took us to a number of pubs in the area, starting with the Stag's Head. Very cool pub!

This is a very traditional Irish pub. Warm and welcoming, rustic decorated. The Guinness casserole was rich and very tasty. Crisp fish and chips served with mashed peas and a very nice tartar sauce. The burger was ok, tasty, but the meat was a bit...compact and not so juicy. The beer selection was ok. I would recommend a visit here to experience a genuine Irish pub.More

Great atmosphere, amazing food (Beef and Guinness stew was awesome!)..they were very busy when we walked in..made us feel welcome, got us a drink while we waited..not more than 5 minutes. All staff that we had interaction with was friendly, courteous and prompt!

We stopped here, fresh off the plane from the states, for a late lunch. Decor is a rustic hunting theme with lots of dark, carved wood. We found the vibe quite relaxing, yet cheerful. My mussels were sweet and tender...and plentiful! My husband's beef and...Guinness stew was amazing. And, of course, the Guinness and Smithwicks were refreshing. The service was excellent. We truly felt like we were back in Ireland!More

If you are traveling to Dublin, I highly recommend going to The Stag’s Head on beautiful Dame Ct. They have a delicious menu, the mussels are my favorite. You truly get the authentic real Irish pub experience, in addition to fantastic service! Eddie was my...bartender who was super helpful and offered great advice for our travel plans.More
