Davy Byrnes décor is original, authentic and pre-Second World War in theme. Boasting an excellent art collection, visitors can appreciate the three educational murals of Joycean Dublin by Liam Proud, the priceless murals of the 1940’s by Brendan Behan’s father-in-law, Cecil French Salkeld and the fine sculptures of Eddie Delaney and John Behan.
When the premises are not too busy, visitors inspecting the murals will notice the man who first came to this spot one hundred years ago, Davy Byrne himself. Surveying the premises from his majestic throne, one can reflect on an age that is now past but not forgotten in a premises which is now one of Dublin’s most fashionable and sought out watering holes.
One key area which has improved significantly is the tremendous emphasis placed on providing quality food in today’s trade. Davy Byrnes’ excellent pub-food reputation, with seafood as its speciality, is famous throughout Dublin. Visitors at lunch and evening time can savour fresh and smoked salmon, and also crab dishes. A full range of hot meals and salads compliment the menu and, often as not, visitors can enjoy a hearty meal of oysters and Guinness.
