The pick of the bunch though is L Mulligan Grocers
. See these places were hipstery before anybody knew what hipster was. They served craft and quality Belgian beer on tap while 90% of people were still necking pints of Carlsberg in stuck up expensive super pubs. L Mulligans certainly wasn’t the first craft beer spot in Dublin nor were they alone in setting the trend but they certainly helped kick things off here in Ireland in the height of the bad times. See craft beer pubs could only really survive in areas with cheaper rents as the visionaries behind them did things like they have here but converting an old shop into a pub serving awesome meals.
