This bar is well and truly hidden within The Central Hotel, which is located on Exchequer Street in Dublin 2.
Usually, hotel bars are located on the ground floor, within sight as you walk in the front door of the hotel. However, this little gem is pass reception, up two flights of stairs and to your left.
The bar is spread over three rooms and is usually quite busy whether it be at night or during the day.
No music or televisions here, just a quaint bar to have a few quiet drinks accompanied by a lovely warm fire.
This bar gets a nice mix of customers, young and old, shoppers, tourists and artists. The hotel building was built in 1887 and the bar looks and feels like a Victorian-era library, complete with bookcases.
The Central hotel is only a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Grafton Street and just off South Great Georges Street. Directions can be found here.
