    Can anyone suggest a good place to meet someone for a cosy drink, get a seat on a wednesday or thursday night and chat (where you can hear yourself think!) in Dublin City Centre. Friend lives in Patrick St area so was thinking some where around Dame St ? Thanks in advance!

    The Library bar, upstairs in the Central Hotel on Exchequer street is fairly quiet.

    Second the Library bar - or maybe Nearys on Chatham street? Though no guarantee of a seat!

    I can be jammo. Try Ryan's (previously Robert Read's) in Store St. Luas Red line stops outside and the Green line nearby in Marlborough St.

    The Palace on Fleet St. - they don't have a TV or piped music.
    Hughes - Chancery St - no TV or piped music (though they do have trad music at weekends)
    The Long Hall on Georges St.

    Reads like a decent pub crawl if anyone is free tomorrow?!
    I've a mild hearing problem, and some great suggestions above where I don't have to ask people to shout at me! Failing that, I've found a lot of the hotel bars around town to be good from a noise perspective, but might not be as cosy (or serve as nice a Guinness).

    Those pubs remind me of the days I lived in Dublin. We have a selection of decent pubs in Cork, but they don't hold a candle to those in the Big Shmoke! Is there a better feeling than nabbing the snug in Doheny & Nesbitt's on a Friday afternoon?
