Here's why The Clock pub on Thomas Street is a cosy slice of old Dublin

A much ignored gem on Thomas Street.

THE CLOCK PUB in Thomas Street is basically a Liberties institution.

It’s a unique and special place. Why?

There are clocks everywhere

It lives up to its name.

It has a whole lotta history

It was apparently a meeting spot of the United Irishmen planning the 1803 rebellion.

You’ll be sure to run in to a few characters

It has a damn aviary out the back

Only, and we mean only, in Ireland.

Nothing like a whopper birdcage out the back in the smoking area. I love this pub.

You can’t beat the bingo inside

Down the local in Dublin. #Bingowiththeboys

And the auld lad interior

Sure they offer discounts to OAPs, and they do a savage pint of Guinness.

It’s the unofficial watering hole for NCAD

Sure it’s only down the road

It’s got so much character

It’s one of those rare pubs in the city that you’ll find more locals in than tourists. They’ll even put on the RTÉ news at six if there’s no sport on.
