Historic Atmosphere

Dublin is home to multiple historic properties (many of which are on the National Registrar of Historic Places) and Dublin Village Tavern is no exception. The quaint building was constructed more than 200 years ago and recent renovations have since added more space for locals and visitors to sit and sip.
