After our drink in Ryan’s pub, we decided to walk up to Kilmainham and have a drink in The Patriots Inn, its situated right across from Kilmainham Gaol and the Royal Hospital Kilmainham which houses the Irish Museum of Modern Art. We decided on this pub, as I regularly cycle passed here on my way into work.
How to get to Patriots Inn
If you have a ticket for the sightseeing tour buses, when you get off at the Kilmainham Gaol stop, The Patriot’s Inn will be behind you on the corner, right on the junction.
Or like us, go to Heuston train station or get off the Luas Red line at the Heuston stop, then walk up past the Luas tram tracks up the hill/lane between the Guinness brewery and the large old yellow building (this is Dr Steevans Hospital) and take the first right and walk down Bow-lane which leads into Kilmainham lane for less than a kilometre.
