Bruce Springsteen was enjoying the comedown after last night’s Croke Park gig at his city local, The Long Hall on Great George’s Street.

He’s known for visiting the pub, along with O’Donoghue’s on Baggot Street, every time he’s in Dublin.

The Long Hall staff confirmed to that he arrived around 4pm and had one pint, but quickly scarpered.

Val Burke, manager of the pub, told earlier this year that he comes for the pints just as much as the gigs:

When he came in after his gig in 2008 he told me ‘I don’t just come to Dublin for the gigs, I come for the pints in the Long Hall and O’Donoghues’.
