1994 BEST Irish Pub

The Brendan Behan Pub

When a local film company needed a bar in Ireland for a scene, they came to the Brendan Behan. The Guinness is well drawn, and the pub offers readings from the likes of James Carroll plus a surprising variety of live music, including rockabilly, reggae, and, of course, the weekly Irish seisun (session).
