You can’t miss Grogan’s. If the bloodred exterior of the pub doesn’t catch your eye, the swelling crowds sitting on the steps and spilling out into the street will; the seats outside are some of the most coveted in Dublin. Thankfully, like many Irish pubs, there is no television blaring in the corner and often no music, meaning that this is a place to be social. There’s really no other way to describe Grogan’s than as a classic pub—mossy-green upholstered seats, brick floors, an aging wooden bar, and the same barman always pulling the pints—plus, a proper pot of tea for the abstemious.
