    Amazing pint of Guinness. This is a hidden gem just north of dublins city center. Mostly a local crowd dotted with some tourists that have elected to go off the beaten path.

    Great pub with lovely atmosphere and pints of Guinness. Be careful tho'... Their clock is 20 minutes fast! And if they flash the lights for last orders early at midnight, they mean it.

    You have to take a bus and walk up an all-but-invisible alleyway to reach Gravediggers, but there's something unabashedly wonderful about the place that keeps regulars coming back for lifetimes. Read more

    Ask to see “The Book” and see the signatures of some past patrons and then sign it yourself. The bartenders will show you some of their notable favorites as well.

    Cosy restaurant. The food was excellent and so was the service. We've tried almost everything and except the potato wedges 🥴 everything was really tasty.

    My favourite pub on this earth. Love the atmosphere, the tapas, the conversation and of course the Guinness.

    The pub has been here since 1833, it feels like you have stepped back to that time. Read more

    Best Guinness in Dublin. Creamy and far too drinkable. It's also a dark dingy authentic pub containing many lovely locals.

    Great for lunch! (non-liquid kind) Check if blackberry crumble is on and save some room for it. If "platter" is on the lunch menu, take it.

    The gravediggers from the adjacent Glasnevin Cemetery had a secret serving hatch so that they could drink on the job, hence the pub’s nickname.

    The Guinness is great. The tapas is good, but not the best I have had. The green outside is nice on a summer day

    Conversation and song were once the only entertainment in a proper pub. They still are, here. For more local tips, follow us on 4sq or check out www.renhotels.com.

    Don't forget your cash. The pub doesn't take credit card. Nearest ATM is in spar.

    Another Glasnevin spot that rocks on a sunny day. Get a pint in a plastic glass and drink it on the grassy square outside.

    Великолепный паб из серии тех мест, которые не менялись последние лет 50. И дай бог, чтоб еще лет 50 не ремонтировали. На разливе всего несколько сортов, но все нужное есть:)

    Der Name ist Programm, die Toiletten besser meiden. Auf jeden Fall das beste Guiness und ein muss in Dublin.
