The Oarsman is a Pub with a long and rich history first opening it’s doors as a Public House in 1816. One of The Oarsman’s more prominent mentions in history is James Joyce’s reference to the pub in Ulysses at a time when the pub was named Tulley’s. The Oarsman Pub has retained it’s original architecture from 1816 including its vaulted ceilings, original bar and even the original barrel taps behind the bar. From the moment you walk in to the pub you can feel the rich history come to life.
Blending the deep roots of the past with the present is something The Oarsman does better than most. In addition to a full bar and well-rounded wine list we also offer an impressive selection of craft beers, which rotate on a regular basis and a whiskey collection that is second to none. The Oarsman is perfect for that after work drink or a celebration after a big win at The Aviva Stadium. Heading to a show at The Board Gais Theatre or The 3 Arena, The Oarsman is less than a 5 minute walk from either and the perfect destination for a few pre or post show drinks.
