      Disadvantages

      The Long Hall has character in spades. It's one of the surviving examples of a classic Dublin boozer (in a city so well served for bars, I can only thing of 6-8 that really pull that off). Don't necessarily be put off if you arrive in to face a wall of bodies lined up along the long hall of the name - if you push your way past you'll find a lounge area with more seating and a little bit more air (all be it smoke-laden, in the tradition of all things dublin-publike). The Guinness is good, although, on a busy night, the bar staff may not give it quite the care and attention it's due, and bar prices are pretty standard for central Dublin. In fact, the only real peril with the Long Hall is that it's frequently busy, and when it is it's not at it's best!!! Steer clear on Friday nights when it can be overloaded with your archetypal men-in-suits.

        The Long Hall could never be described as a 'nice' pub. I suppose it's one of those few remaining Dublin pubs that still retain a certain amount of character (Mulligans, The Palace Bar, and the Welcome Inn being the only others I can think of). Rather than following many other bars' example in refurbishing the place to give it a faux "old world" look, the Long Hall simply stayed as it has been for a good long time now. Result: narrow; not many seats; TV in the corner playing God alone knows what sports; the old drunks that you seldom see anymore in inner city bars. On the good side, it has one of the best pints of Guinness in the city (other good pints being found in, curiously, Mulligans, The Palace Bar, and The Welcome Inn), an interesting mix of customers, and friendly staff. A good number of students drink there, since it's fairly close to Trinity College, and has a good reputation for being down-to-earth, inexpensive, and reasonably comfortable. Recommended, but maybe not the clubber's ideal hangout.
