Built in 1877, the Long Hall is wonderfully intact in 2009 and full of ornate Victorian fittings. The deep red carpet and walls combine with decorative mirrors, lanterns, stained glass and decorative ceiling roses. Behind the bar, amid mirrors and shelves laden with spirits, sits the 'Old Regulator' pendulum clock that boldly promises 'Correct Time'. As its name suggests, the pub is long and fairly narrow. Until 1951, the bar was men-only and the fairer sex were served in the adjacent hallway through a hatch. In the book 'The Irish Pub' by James Fennell & Turtle Bunbury (Thames & Hudson, 2008) the authors call this pub as 'the sort of place I.K. Brunel would have created if he'd turned to pub design'. Next time you're in Dublin, put this near the top of your list.
