There’s a friendly, chatty vibe at this satisfyingly old-fashioned place, considered one of Dublin’s “quintessential” pubs. There’s nothing modern about the dimly lit, atmospheric interior, save for the incongruous art collection on the walls (if you like a piece, ask—most of it is for sale). Grogan’s reputation rests mostly on its eclectic clientele, ranging from grizzled old folks who’ve been coming here for years to hipsterish artsy types in search of a low-fi hangout.
