Go Where the Locals Go
No trip to Dublin is complete without stopping at Dublin Village Tavern, or DVT as the locals call it. With its cozy interior, brick walls covered with memorabilia and friendly staff, you’ll find yourself having a good craic with the people who call Dublin home. Enjoy happy hour with friends on their quaint patio or stop at the bar for a true pub experience. Either way, you’ll leave feeling as if you’ve been a regular at Dublin Village Tavern for years. Just take it from Greg on TripAdvisor, “this is a true hidden gem that you don't want to miss.”
Irish Eats with a Twist
Those seeking Gaelic goodness are in luck with Irish-inspired food sprinkled throughout DVT’s menu. You can’t go wrong with an order of the award-winning Irish Egg Rolls, filled with corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss served with a side of 1000 Island dressing. For a more traditional Irish dish, order the Braised Beef Shepherd's Pie, slow-cooked in Guinness and baked under a mashed potato and bread crumb crust. Or take a lighter approach with the Irish Whiskey Glazed Salmon served with brown rice almondine and vegetables. And save room for dessert because The Triple Irish is a must-try – a warm triple chocolate brownie with Guinness & Jameson caramel sauce & Bailey’s whipped cream.
Dublin Village Tavern has been a Dublin staple for more than 20 years, but before it was the pub we all know and love, DVT has 200 years of history within its walls. Built around 1880, this building has been home to a hardware store, dry goods store and post office for the Dublin community. Take a look around and see if you can find any remains of the businesses prior. Learn more about DVT’s history on the Historic Dublin Time Trek.
