Mary's Bar & Hardware Shop
Ranked #427 of 2,639 Restaurants in Dublin

Description: Mary's Bar and Hardware Shop is located just off Grafton Street. It feels like you're stepping right out of the city centre and right into a pub in rural Ireland. Wooden floors, a full stock of hardware available to purchase, trad music on the occasional night, pints of plain and platters of toasties.

Had some friends over from the UK and had been telling them about the old rural Irish pub/shop/hardware store/undertaker kind of place that existed in the past. They found the concept hard to understand, so last Monday I brought them to Marys and let the place do the talking. Thankfully the undertaker aspect is one that they decided not to incorporate. The rest stand!

A nostalgic pint of Guinness in Marys is a throwback to the olden days in rural Ireland. In keeping with the theme you can also pick up the rest of your weekly necessities like a hammer, a tin of soup or some biscuits!

The Aussie who was working behind the bar was full of the chats and recommendations for the visitors which they loved.

I'll bring the next batch in, and might even stop in for a pint myself next time I'm passing

So glad we found this spot! We went back several times for the bartenders and the Guinness. The bartenders are a hoot, super friendly and very informative on places to check out in the city, as well as getting tickets for soccer games. The Guinness... tell me how the Guinness at this bar is fresher tasting than the Guinness Storehouse? Not bitter at all! It was insane! Next visit to Dublin we will certainly be coming here night 1!

Fantastic little bar with a burger diner downstairs. Great atmosphere with a typical Irish warm welcome. One to return to.
