Heads they win

The Stag's Head has been named the best pub in Ireland

A deserving winner.

THE TOP PUBS were crowned at the National Hospitality Awards yesterday, and one of Dublin’s finest pubs came out on top.

The Stag’s Head won the prize for best overall pub in Ireland, with Toner’s taking Best Traditional Pub, and The Back Page winning Best Sporting Pub.

The Vintage Cocktail Club won the best cocktail bar, with The Wright Venue taking Best Nightclub. The rest of the winners can be seen here.

But back to The Stag’s Head.

We can see why it won.

They do a fierce pint of Guinness

It’s got a… rustic feel to it

And the decor is next-to-none

There’s often a sing-song to be had

It’s the perfect place to sit with a creamy pint

On a Sunday afternoon

Or with the buzz of the after work crowd

Getting the snug to yourself is the ultimate achievement
