Snugs in Dublin pubs have long been coveted for their privacy and ease of access to the bar. A snug is a small room of varying size that has access into the bar and gives privacy from the rest of the bar area, usually in the form of a door.
We’ve included some of the more modern built snugs, and they are generally easily identifiable when compared to the more well worn snugs in older pubs.
If you’re lucky enough to nab the snug when you get in, it’s a lovely place for quiet drinks in near privacy with one or two friends.
To learn more about what defines a snug, you can watch this video from pub historian Gerry Cooley. Link.
If there’s a snug missing from this list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add it in.
