Mulligans Pub on Poolbeg Street, 1970. The very soul of Dublin pub culture can be found here. Generations of Dubliners have attended liquid services in this old house. The pub has served many famous faces too. John F. Kennedy savoured the brews here back in 1945 when he worked with the Hearst Newspaper dynasty. Judy Garland used to drink here seven nights a week when she performed at the Theatre Royal, apparently smoking & playing poker until the early hours..but this 230 year old pub is perhaps most famous for its association with James Joyce, who set one of his short stories on the premises. If the walls of Mulligans could talk, what tales they would tell...
