Washington, D.C.'s rich cultural experience is anything but boring. With multiple cuisines to choose from, visiting this authentic Irish pub will transport you straight to Ireland. The Dubliner was established in 1974 by the daughter of an Irish immigrant. The pub was inspired by a collection of short stories published in 1914 called Dubliners by James Joyce, which tells a story of middle-class life in Dublin, Ireland in the early 20th century. The pub is located on the corner of O'Connell Street and Massachuttes Avenue within the Phoenix Park Hotel one block from Union Station. Many of the friendly staff are from Ireland, giving you an authentic dining experience.
Its fully stocked bar serves house-made cocktails that are inspired by Ireland. Additionally, the Dubliner is America's largest purveyor of Guinness Stout and the only purveyor of Auld Dubliner Amber Ale, made exclusively for The Dubliner. They are also the first pub to serve Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale and have added Smithwick's Ale to their menu. The extensive whiskey selection at The Dubliner gives diners 100 options, including the exclusively made, house-blended Dubliner Irish Whiskey, created at a distillery in Ireland and aged in American Oak bourbon casks.
The Dubliner's menu offers many options that are both traditional and trendy. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, brunch, late-night, and dessert at the Dubliner and choose from both conventional Irish dishes like Irish stew, shepherd's pie, fish and chips, and pub food, as well as salads, sandwiches, and other entrees.
Another experience to enjoy at The Dubliner is their live entertainment, featuring local acts from around the city, bringing in acts who play both modern rock and traditional Irish sounds. The music starts at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday-Thursday and ends at midnight, and begins at 9 p.m. and ends at 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
The Dubliner is open 7 days a week. Their hours include: Monday–Thursday 7 a.m.–2 a.m.; Friday 7 a.m–3 a.m.; Saturday 7:30 a.m.– 3 a.m., and Sunday 7:30 a.m.–2 a.m.
