There isn’t much in the way of innovation on the menu of hearty Irish classics at this popular pub in Temple Bar—and that’s precisely why it’s so popular. What you get is delicious traditional pub food mixed with just a hint of bistro style around the edges: dishes like Irish stew; West of Ireland seafood chowder; bangers and mash (sausages and mashed potato) with ale gravy; and cottage pie (ground beef and vegetable pie, topped with mashed potato). There’s a small wine list, but the beer selection is better. As much of a draw as the food is the nightly live music, all traditional and all free, with up to 20 acts a week in the summer. The Old Storehouse doesn’t accept reservations, so be prepared to wait for a table when it’s busy.
