You can’t come to Dublin without sampling the pub scene. We are a nation of conversationalists and where better to start one than in the cosy surrounds of a real Irish pub.
The Foggy Dew is just that, and more. Inside you will find the familiar decor of darkened wood and almost ecclesiastical back bar which has become synonymous with Irish pubs the world over, but you will also find a huge collection of rock memorabilia scattered around the walls and ceiling. The music on the other hand is more usually of a reggae style and has been as long as I can remember – giving the place a very laid back and relaxing feel.
Behind the bar you will find an impressive amount of foreign currency stapled all over – left behind by travelling Irish men and women as well as passing tourists. There are many nooks and crannies to hide away in here, even though it is not the biggest. There is even an old Irish phone box for those drunken camera moments!
Drinks on offer here are of a distinctly Irish ilk. They are purveyors of a large collection of Irish whiskeys and Irish craft beers – more than most bars it would be safe to say.
Live music is also something the Foggy does in its own way – check out their Sunday ‘skank’ night weekly, a raucous ska night if ever there was one!
Its location is central to everything, but cross the threshold and you enter a different world!
