Fahy's is on Prospect Hill, just a minutes walk from Eyre Square. Its not the type of place you'd bring a young wan to if you were trying to impress her but if you just want a good pint of stout and talk to a couple of auld boys about how the decline of hurling then its a good stop. Old man Fahy literally hasn't changed a thing in it since the 70's and the barrel is still directly beneath the taps.
The Crane,along with great Guinness, fulfills the criteria for chicks suddenly arriving out of nowhere between half ten and half 11 and most particularly in the case of yanks, being well up for it. A quick stroll down the road then to the Roisn afterwards and your in business.
O Connells is one of the best pubs in Ireland, no question.
Best in London, Flanagans in Ealing, and the Bumblebee, off Stockwell rd in Brixton.
