Hidden in the heart of Dame Street sits The Stags Head, one of Dublin’s most loved spots for pints, food and of course Irish coffee. The former haunt of Michael Collins, The Stags Head is where you will find the most delicious, creamiest glass of Irish Coffee in Dublin, making The Stags Head one of the top places to visit in Dublin! Have an authentic whiskey experience by asking your bartender to use whiskey from the cask.
Irish coffee was originally created in 1943 at a Limerick restaurant which sat beside an airbase.
A young chef, Chef Sheridan, decided to heat up the passengers that came off the flights with something a little bit different.
He brewed rich, dark coffee and added in some Irish whiskey, some brown sugar and topped it off with whipped cream – creating the drink we all love and know today.
The Stags Head keeps the Irish coffee tradition alive today by sticking to the classic recipe.
They take pride in their Irish coffee recipe, using only the best ingredients including Powers Whiskey which is specially selected by the master blender from Midleton Distellery, Co. Cork.
The pub offers beautiful, traditional surroundings to take in as you relax with your Irish coffee. Slide into one of the Stags Head’s comfy snugs to catch up with friends over your drinks. Or taste some traditional fare before having your Irish coffee as dessert for a real Irish food experience.
After a day of sightseeing around Dublin, or a day full of shopping through Temple Bar and Stephen’s Green, call into The Stags Head to rest your feet and have one of the barmen make you a Stags Head Irish coffee!
