The Duke, a traditional Dublin Pub, is centrally situated, off Grafton Street, the main south city shopping area, also very close to St. Stephen's Green, Trinity College and all city transport links.

Ideally situated in the city centre, on historic Duke Street, this old watering hole, which takes its title from the street named after the second Duke of Grafton, has been providing liquid refreshments and sustenance to the people of Dublin since 1822.

The decor in this well-preserved, traditional pub suggests, in an unobtrusive way, the style of early Georgian Dublin, with engravings and prints of old Dublin scenes and personalities, and portraits of famous literary figures. This pub, indeed, was reputed to be one of the favoured pubs of Brendan Behan and Patrick Kavanagh, two of Ireland's major literary figures.

The Duke is also, fittingly, the starting-point for the year-round Dublin Literary Pub Crawl www.dublinpubcrawl.com

Food is served daily with a tasty choice of starters, main courses and desserts. A heated smoking terrace is located at the front of this Pub, ideal for soaking-up the local ambience.
